Tadlock Jr. and a special friend, Brenda Chapman who was like a baby sister to him. He is also survived by numerous cousins, nieces and nephews and a host of friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, his father Glenn Wesley Tadlock, Sr. and his mother Ollie May Tadlock and his sister Tera Kay Tadlock Barnes.

Tad loved to cook for his friends and family and liked to watch the Dallas Cowboys. He was very outgoing and loved spending time with family and friends, especially during the holidays. He will be very much missed by all who knew him.
