Robert 'Bob' Leon Turner, 69, passed away on Tuesday, January 29, 2013. He was born in Dallas, Texas, on May 20, 1943, to George Robert Turner and Mary Marie Feaster-Turner. He was a longstanding resident of Pueblo and Rye, Colorado. Most recently lived in Manitou Springs and Pueblo West, Colorado. A member of Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. Robert devoted his life to Health Care Administration by owning and/or operating Long Term Care Communities. He wrote the first Colorado Nursing Home Administrator's examination and passed in 1970 and holds license #100. Unfortunately, in 1991, a car accident rendered him disabled and he was unable to work in a traditional sense. He was known for his musical and artistic talents and philosophical mannerism, which developed even further during his lengthy illness. His family was most important to him. A marriage of almost fifty years to his soul mate and wife, Sandra, rendered four children, four grandchildren, and a great-granddaughter. He loved family dinners, parties, and functions that brought everyone together. Robert is survived by wife, Sandra McIver-Turner; sons, Kenneth Andrew (Shani) Turner, Allan Amos (Patricia) Turner; grandchildren, Brittany (Mark) Turner, Mikayla Turner, Darian Rodman, and Christopher Turner; sister, Rebecca Conine (John); brother, Charles (Patty) Turner; sister-in-law, Sue Turner; brother-in-law, Ed Ruehlen; former daughter-in-law, Vickie Turner-Reed; former sons-in-law, Curtis Rodman and Tony Huckabey. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and countless close friends. Robert was preceded in death by daughter, Rachelle Rodman-Huckabey; son, Ricky James Turner; great-granddaughter, Alexandria Lynae Turner-Griego; parents, George and Mary Turner; parents in-law, James and Beulah McIver; sister, Judy Ruehlen; and brother, Jerry Turner.
