Houston Tumlin

In Memory of SPC Houston Lee Tumlin, US Army

December 27, 1992 – March 23, 2021

Camp Humphreys, Korea

Houston was a child actor for years; he was known for his part in Talladega Nights, and played Will

Ferrell’s son, Walker Bobby. He played football and baseball all through school. He loved his time

serving in the 101st Airborne Division at Ft Campbell, earning his air assault wings was his

greatest accomplishment. He left the Army with full honors in 2019 and he missed it every day

until the day he left this world. Houston struggled for 4 years with PTSD, depression and

alcoholism. We later found out that he also had CTE (brain trauma) from multiple concussions, which doctors say aided in his death by suicide. My goal as his mother is to fight for him, to be his voice on this

earth, and to help with awareness. There is help out there.

He called Alabama home and his resting place is the military section at St. Clair Memorial Gardens, Pell City, AL.
