Not sure what to say?

Rich and I belonged to the same debating society for over 29 years. He was a trusted and loyal friend, and was an honest and sincere man.
I will miss him terribly.

A celebration of Rich Turner's life will be held on Wed., June 29th, at 1 p.m. at Kingston United Methodist Church, Church St., Kingston, NJ.

Rich is sorely missed at Mercer County Community College.

We both started in the English Department about the same time, and I very much enjoyed all of the many "sessions" we had where we tried to fix the world's writing ills and just ills in general.

I loved his acerbic wit and his drive to help students become the best writers they could be. I mostly loved his wit. He was not a man to mince his words nor mask his feelings, and I admired him for that.

Dear Grace and family, please accept my sincere condolences.

I first “met” Rich Turner as a member of a website we both inhabited. Later, when he started his own site and created a message board, I had the honor of being the first one to sign up as "Bradd".

I use the word “honor” advisedly since, over the years, reading what he posted, and via many lengthy emails, I discovered Rich to be a man of great and consistent integrity, not to speak of his expertise...

I have been a member of Rich's "Grammar Curmudgeon" for almost five years. His unparalleled knowledge of the English language was in a league of its own – he was brilliant and is irreplaceable.

My heartfelt condolences to all of you for your loss.

I worked with Rich at Response Analysis. I always enjoyed talking with him. I'm sorry for your loss.
