Tillman was the happiest, fun-loving kid you could ever imagine. He and his older brother Jeremy constantly tortured each other, but always with love. The two developed a deep, unbreakable bond that strengthened as they grew. Tillman was a diligent student, always in the honor roll and graduated from Idaho Falls High School in 1994. He briefly attended college at Esau State University.

Tillman was a devoted gardener, with a true green thumb. He spent hours each summer carefully tending his magnificent vegetable garden. He was happy to share the bounty with friends but his real focus was growing food to help support his family. Tillman spent a lot of time in the fall canning produce from his garden for winter goodness.

Tillman was a devoted father to his three sons, Bridger, Xander, and Jack. They were his life. His happiest times were when he was with the three of them together doing something fun, interesting, or useful. He and Laramie Elliott had an eldest son, Bridger, in 2007. Later in 2007, Tillman met and married Sally Green, and they had Tillman’s middle son, Xander. They later separated. His youngest son Jack was born to him and Daniel Kirby in 2019.

Tillman had a number of occupations as an adult. In his twenties, he worked as a hot tub installer. He went from there to work for many years at Mountain River Engineering as a surveyor until its closure. Tillman was most recently working for the USDA-Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service as an inspector and really enjoyed his coworkers there.
