Cecil "Bud" Tolison

February 7, 1960 ~ February 3, 2021 (age 60)


Cecil “Bud” Allen Tolison, of Wright City, passed from this life February 3, 2021 at his home.  Bud was born February 7, 1960, in DeQueen, AR, to E.J. and Margaret (Williamson) Tolison.

Bud had lived in McCurtain County most of his life and had been a long-distance truck driver most of his adult life.  Bud could also be found on the back of his motorcycle if he wasn’t in his truck. 

Bud loved to make people laugh and should have been a stand-up comedian.  He was funny and would laugh at himself before he would laugh at another.

Bud was preceded in death by his father, E.J. Tolison; mother, Margaret Tolison; other mother, Barbara Tolison; grandchildren, Shannon Fuentes and Matthew Darby, Jr; and siblings, Robert and Teddy Mitchell, and Linda Nance.

Bud is survived by his daughters, Deana Barker, of Sanger, TX, Angela Pannell, of Tulsa, and Ashley Tolison, of Arlington; siblings, Steve Tolison, of Sasche, TX, Elaine Patterson, Celeste, TX, Denice and Donald Moore, of the Herndon Community, Calvin and Sharon Mitchell, of Newalla, and Mary Ellis, of Wright City; six grandchildren; aunt, JoAnn and Gene Hamil; uncle, Willie and Nita Tolison, of Texas; several nieces and nephews; a special friend, June Moore, of Wright City; along with a host of other relatives and many friends.
