Patric James Turner Obituary
Patric James Turner

Sept. 12, 1940 - Nov 28, 2014

Son of Pat E. and Violetta Turner and husband for over 50 years to Judith Turner. Patric is survived by his beloved wife, Judie; his brothers, Gary and Daryl Turner; his three daughters, Debra Eck, Christyne Watson and Susan Turner; his son-in-laws, Ted Eck and Jeff Watson; and six grandchildren, Jaclynn, Patric and Christyne Eck and Hannah, Abigail and Natalie Watson. Pat was a graduate of Venice High School, summer of 1958 where he lettered in football and track. He joined the Marines when he was 17 and then the LAPD, where he retired a Sergeant after 25 years. His greatest joys came from his relationships with his family and friends. There was no better friend than Pat. He was fiercely loyal, dependable, and caring. He valued friendships, both old and new, and was always available to lend a hand and provide a good laugh or a shoulder to cry on. Pat was a patriot, a man of high integrity, of strong character and compassion. He was a true man's man, passionate about hunting, fishing, and betting the horse races. He loved to read, garden, cook, and travel. Despite the unexpected suddenness of his death, Pat lived a full and happy life on his own terms. He married Judie, his high school sweetheart and the love of his life. Pat and Judie were inseparable. Their mutual admiration, love, and respect for each other was apparent to all who knew them. This relationship helped foster strong family bonds between their children and grandchildren. They had the good fortune to travel the world and enjoyed hunting and fishing when they weren't sipping wine together in the Central Coast or watching one of their grandchildren's athletic events. Pat was a great husband, cherished father, and beloved grandfather. He loved his daughters and grandchildren dearly and was involved with them in all aspects of life: sports, studies, and especially practical advice. Pat will be deeply missed and his influence on our lives will be forever felt. A Memorial Service will be held at the Neighborhood Church, 415 Paseo Del Mar, Palos Verdes Estates on January 9, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. The family asks that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Wounded Warrior Project, http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org, a charity that was near and dear to Pat's heart or Los Angeles Police Memorial Foundation, www.lapmf.org/donations.htm.
