Billy Ray Tilley, 15 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. L.C. Tilley, died March 15 at his home here following a lengthy illness.
The youngster had attended Spur schools up until about two years ago when ill health forced him to withdraw.

Born in Fletcher, OK in 1946, the Tilley boy came to Dickens County with his parents at the age of one year. He was a member of the Four-Square Gospel Church.
Survivors include his parents; two sisters, Beverly Faye and Vickie Joyce Tilley; one half sister, Joyce Janice Coley, Detroit, Mich; seven brothers, L.Z., Bobby, Ronnie Edward, Bruce Wayne, Donnie Eugene, Roy Leon and Johnny Don; maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hale, Spur and paternal grandfather, J.O.
