WILLIAMSBURG - On April 19, 2014, while in a peaceful and calm sleep, Turner Clemons, Jr., answered the Master's call and went to his Heavenly home. A proud, caring forceful and sincere voice is now silent forever. His life began on November 16, 1929, one of seven children born to the late Lucille and Turner Clemons, Sr., in Shelby County, Alabama. Turner proudly served his country in the United States Army and was Honorably Discharged after more than twenty-one years of service. He also retired from Anheuser Busch Brewery, after twenty-two years of dedicated service. Turner was a member of First Baptist Church, on Scotland Street, where he faithfully supported his church financially and spiritually. He served for many years as a Trustee and as Chairman of the Trustee Board. He was never one to sit still. He became an integral part of the family's business, Grove ABC Day Care, located in James City County. He never failed to answer the call when needed and he will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. He was also preceded in death by his first wife of forty-three years, Sarah and his second wife of ten years, Carolyn, his two sons, and his four brothers. He leaves to treasure his blessed memories, his children, Peggy "Diane" Randall, Ryan Clemons, Sr. (Paulette) and Brenda Majette; his ten grandsons; his six great-grandchildren; his two sisters, Carrie Cannon and Ethel Pope (Charles); and a host of other loving relatives and many caring friends. A funeral service, celebrating the life he lived, will be held 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 26, 2014, in First Baptist Church, 727 Scotland Street, with the Rev. Peter A. Evans officiating. Interment will follow with full military honors in Hampton Memorial Gardens. Family and friends will assemble at 104 Tarleton Bivouac by 10:00 a.m. on Saturday.
