December 13, 1962 — August 3, 2019

Jeffery "Dean" Turnipseed, age 56 of Rock Springs, Georgia passed away early morning on Saturday, August 3, 2019. He was born December 13, 1962 in Lafayette, Georgia to Cecil and Lorine Turnipseed. Dean was a man that was loved by many and had many talents. He was a carpenter by trade for most of his adult life, but also worked with his father in the past doing railroad work and building bridges. Dean is probably most well known around the area for playing music. He loved to pick guitar and could really be the life of a party when he started playing. Dean was preceded in death by his parents, and brother Randall Turnipseed.
