Memories Timeline


  1. Russell was so very special! I learned so much by getting to know him and having the PRIVILEGE of working with him. He was such a diligent worker who never gave up, even when faced with the most frustrating tasks! His warmth and caring just radiated from his person. Russ and Evie together made an unbeatable team, and taught me what partnership in a marriage should be all about.
    Heartfelt sympathies to Evie, and his daughters, Marcia and Sandy, and to his extended family. You remain in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. I well remember Russ’ engaging
    personality and disarming
    smile which immediately put
    me at ease in his presence.
    I was not fortunate to be
    able to socialize with him,
    but If I could chose a
    friend or neighbor in my
    lifetime I would hope that
    he would be just like Russ
    Turner. My wife, Elaine,
    and I are saddened by his
    recent death , but knowing
    that we will one day meet
    againe brings me great joy
    and peace. Our sincere
    condolensces to all of the
    Turner family. And to you,
    Evelyn, Sandy and Marsha,
    may the peace of the Lord be
    with you always.

    May God comfort you in your
    time of sadness.

    David Harold and Elaine
