Bernard Louis Spurlock

Bernard Louis Spurlock, age 93 of Gallatin, passed away on Saturday, October 2, 2021 in Gallatin.

He was born in Cottontown, Tennessee on March 17, 1928 to the late Landon and Gaynelle Spurlock. He is survived by sister Joan Hollins, stepsons Tim Spurlock, Jim Bennett, and grandchildren Drew, Kayla, and Niq.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by brothers: Lassiter Spurlock, Horace Spurlock, Billy Joe Spurlock, Sisters: Helen Herndon, Evelyn Marie Spurlock, and son: David Spurlock.

At the age of 18, Bernard was in a truck accident that left him blind and a double amputee, which confined him to a wheelchair. An inspiration to others, he was an accomplished musician and songwriter, as well as being a dispatcher at the Sumner County Sheriff’s Department.

He was a long-time resident of Christian Towers of Gallatin, where he entertained often with his musical talent and ability to play multiple instruments. He was an amazing example of a life well lived.

As per Bernard’s wishes, his body was donated to Vanderbilt Hospital for research, after which his body will be cremated.

A celebration of life will be held on Tuesday, October 12th at the Gallatin Church of Christ. Visitation will be from 1:00pm to 2:00pm with service following and Julius Hovan presiding. Memorial donations are suggested to either Christian Towers of Gallatin or Gallatin Church of Christ.
