Bedford - Dustin Dyer Turner, 12, of Bedford earned his angel wings on Feb. 28, 2014, in Kissimmee, Fla., having courageously lived with cerebral palsy from birth.He was born in Melrose, Mass., on July 11, 2001.Dustin was in the fifth grade at McKelvie School in Bedford.He is survived by his parents, Michelle (Dyer) and Kendall Turner; sister Nicole; maternal grandparents William and Carol Ann (Barbuto) Dyer of Bedford; two aunts, Sheryl Ann Jacoppo and her husband, Charlie, of North Carolina, and Kim King and her husband, Jeff, of Kansas; and many great-aunts, great-uncles and cousins.He was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Alice Gulley Turner.Dustin's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him know the quality of existence far exceeded the quantity of time he lived. Boy, did Dustin live, from boating on Lake Winnipesaukee to reaching the top of Diamond Head in Hawaii! He showed his love of life through his beautiful smile and contagious giggles..
