Benjamin "Ben" Turner April 27, 1938 - July 12, 2013 Former Resident of Oakland Turner, Benjamin "Ben", 75, fell asleep in death on Friday, July 12, 2013 in Fairfield, CA. Ben was born in 1938 in Rayville, LA and moved to Oakland CA in 1948. While serving in the Marine Corp Reserves, he met and married Sharon Dyels and the two successfully raised six children. Ben worked as an Auto Mechanic for 33 years. Four of those years were spent with his boys operating his own auto repair business, Turner & Sons. Though auto repair was his love, it did not surpass the love he developed for his God, Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) as he dedicated his life to him in 1994 and served him faithfully until the end. His loves included his ministry, bowling, bike riding, and spending time with friends and family where he was never hesitant to give firm but wise direction. Our memories of him are full of love and laughter as he touched many lives. Ben is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Sharon, sons, Ben Turner Jr (Jeanette), Lance Turner, Len Turner (Terez), Lagon Turner (Deneen), Leland Turner (Tracy), daughter, La Tanya Hawkins (Martin), siblings, Cherly Paige, Connie Hall, Jr , Karen Turner, Paulette Levingston, Allen Turner II, Chappelle, Hall, Phyllis Hall, Patrice Lapp, Coree Anderson, and a host of caring and supportive family and friends. He was preceded in death by his loving parents, Annie Hall, step-father, Connie Hall Sr., step-mother, Georgine Turner, and father Allen Turner. Services to be held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses located at 2010 Walters Road Fairfield, CA on July 20, 2013 at 2pm.
