In Memory

John Turner

John Turner

January 22, 2021

We can confirm that John Turner passed away last December. Unfortunately, due to the Covid virus little is known of obituary and burial information. John lived in Ollala, Washington just south of Bremerton and near his beloved US Navy.  He was trained in IT technology and actually invented a certain code that is still used today.  He followed that training into his professional life until retirement. He was an avid outdoor person and had a tear-drop trailer he'd outfitted for many travels with his spaniel. John is survived by his sister Beth. He did not have children. He surely will be missed.

Rest in peace, John.  And a Happy Birthday.

I was saddened to learn this morning about John's death. John and I were friends in high school and we worked together at Willamette View Manor. Apparently, we looked enough alike that a number of the elderly residents thought we were brothers, maybe twins. We denied it for a long time, but then decided what the heck, let's invent a story--which is what we did. We did other things too, but we'll leave that for the confessional.

After high school, I didn't see John for 40 years or so, but when we got together at our 45th reunion, our conversation renewed as if we had just spoken the day before. One of the consolations of age given to us is the gratitude for relationships that endure over time. I will always be grateful for that evening. And thanks to you, Kathy, for keeping this list updated and for providing me this morning the opportunity to reflect gratefully on a time in my life which was not always that great. John was one of the reasons for that gratitude.

John was part of the neighborhood that welcomed me back to the area following a four-year absence.  He was always fun, upbeat and considerate.  He also had a long memory and reminded others of the historic adventures.  Peace to you, John.
