Phillip E. "Eddie" Turner
GRANITEVILLE, SC - RW Brother Phillip E. "Eddie" Turner, 59, of Graniteville, SC, husband of thirty-
six years to Mrs. Gloria Kaney Turner, entered into rest on Saturday, February 18, 2017.
Born and a lifelong resident of Aiken County, SC, he was the son of Clarence E. Turner, Aiken, SC and the late Betty Key Turner. He began his career in public service with the Graniteville Police Department, followed by the Aiken County Sheriff's Office and retired from the North Augusta Department of Public Safety. Following his retirement from North Augusta, he joined the Batesburg-Leesville Police Department and was currently a Firefighter with the Sage Mill Fire Department. Eddie was well known in the area through his umpiring baseball and softball and refereeing at football games for many years. RW Brother Eddie Turner began his masonic journey on April 19, 1979 at Star Lodge #99 A.F.M., Graniteville, SC and was raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason on June 21, 1979. He served as Worship Master at Star seven times and was a Past District Deputy Grandmaster of the sixth masonic district. RW Brother Eddie Turner was well recognized in the masonic community for his degree work and left a lasting impression on many masons. Eddie was an avid gamecock fan and enjoyed "pulling the chains" at home games. He could be found many evenings at the Midway Grill, solving the world's problems with his dear friend who was more like a brother, Bill Hamilton. He also enjoyed fishing, camping, gardening and riding his motorcycle. If he told you to call him if you needed him, he meant it. Eddie has lent an ear to many people and always had a word of advice and of course an opinion. He was the true definition of a "Public Servant." May his memory be eternal.
In addition to his wife and parents, family members include his children, David Stokes and his wife, Jessica, Graniteville, SC, Phillip E. Turner and his wife, Ellen, Windsor, SC and his baby girl, Nikki Rodriguez and her husband, Eric, Warrenville, SC; sister, Terry Anderson and her husband, Mike, Aiken, SC and his beloved grandchildren, Tristin Stokes, Tucker Stokes, Faith Turner, Maya Rodriguez and Ellie Rodriguez.
