Living in Knoxville about 8 or 9 years ago, my son caught a dandy bass. Took it to Thurman's and he did an excellent job mounting it (it looks just as good as the day we picked it up from him). Wife and I were in Knoxville yesterday and I was nosing around Gander Mountain and saw several mounts with "in memory of Thurman's Taxidermy." Asked one of the guys there and he said he'd passed. Too bad, he was a real artist. Any of you E TN folks know any details of his death?
