Obituary for Willard Tarlton
Willard Tarlton, age 88, of Harrisburg, Illinois passed away Monday, March 7, 2022 at his residence. He was born on February 25, 1934 in Eldorado, Illinois to Charles Loren and Madge Cowsert Tarlton. Willard loved his family. Willard loved cars and spoke often of helping his dad work on cars when he was younger. His favorite was a Ford. He collected and enjoyed buying model cars as a hobby, some he even built himself. He especially enjoyed attending car shows and watching them on television. Willard loved the outdoors, always enjoyed van rides in the country, and sitting outside on the porch at his home. Willard had a special fur-friend, Daisy, who he was quite fond of and instrumental in adopting for his home. Willard was well loved by his friends and individual support-staff at Coleman Tri-County Services throughout the years. Willard passed away at his CILA home on Triple S. Road with his staff-family by his side. He will be greatly missed, and so fondly remembered, by his Coleman Tri-County family...and Daisy.
He was preceded in death by both of his parents, and a brother, Charlie Tarlton.
A special thanks for the loving care given to Willard by the staff and members of the Coleman Tri County Services Triple S CILA home and Hospice of Southern Illinois.
