He adored his children and grandchildren, and every activity they participated in. The proud "Pops" in the crowd was bound to be Thurman. If there were a bunch of kids at a family gathering, you could bet Thurman was right in the middle. Thurman was Mr. Fixit in the family, from plumbing to electricity, carpentry to mechanics, Thurman could fix it. He was the one you turned to when you needed the sympathetic ear of a friend, one who always made time for you. He was patient, kind, and always lived by the golden rule.

Thurman was called to his eternal home with the Lord on August 31st, 2012 in Mt. Juliet, TN with his wife and family by his side. Thurman was 61 years old.

Thurman is preceded in death by his parents, his father and mother- in- law, Rufus and Marjorie Henson, two brothers, Robert and Billy Gene Blackfox, and one sister, Lorene Blackfox. Those left to cherish his memory include his loving wife of forty years, Gina, of the home in Lost City, OK, one son, Scottie Blackfox and wife Nichole of Nashville, TN, and one daughter, Sasha Qualls and husband Bryan of Hulbert, OK. He leaves three sisters, Corene Alaniz and husband Arnold of Mesquite, TX, Jeananna Hendricks of Tahlequah, OK, and Cynthia Blackfox of Dallas, TX.
