—Sturgess to David and the others.[src]

At some point in the apocalypse, Sturgess joined a community called the Alexandria Safe-Zone where, upon being interviewed by Deanna, he was appointed as one of the gardeners.

Season 6

"First Time Again"

Sturgess is among the volunteers to help build the wall on one of the roads to deter the mega herd in the operation to lure it away from Alexandria. One day as they are in mid-construction, he and the other Alexandrians are almost bitten by walkers until Morgan saves them as opposed to Rick's suggestion of forcing the scared residents to learn how to defend themselves. When the walkers break free from the quarry and the plan is set into motion, Sturgess goes along with Scott, Annie, Glenn, Nicholas, and Heath to keep walkers from straggling off the road with flares.

"Thank You"

When a part of the herd ventures away from the road into the woods due to a blaring horn coming from Alexandria, the group runs through the woods in an attempt to return to the community. As they are attacked by walkers, Sturgess tries to fight them off but accidentally shoots Scott in the leg. He then panics and runs away from the group on his own, however, he is ambushed in a nearby town and devoured by several walkers. A while later, the group finds Sturgess' hat lost on the streets of the town, followed by his lifeless corpse, still being eaten by the walkers.


Killed By

Shortly after having abandoned the group, Sturgess is ambushed in a nearby town and devoured by several walkers.
