James Dillard Turner Jr. Obituary
JAMES DILLARD TURNER JR. Age 83, of San Jacinto, California, passed on Saturday, April 26, 2014, at the Village in Hemet, California. He was born Thursday, February 19, 1931 in Bell Gardens, California, and was the son of the late James and Thelma Turner Sr. Born in 1931 during the Great Depression, Jim learned his legendary frugality. It's not that he was cheap - it's that he knew what it meant to go without. He joined the Navy and served his country during the Korean War. He married Bonnie Jean, the love of his life, and they had three beautiful children, Amanda, David and Michael. He lived to see three great-grandchildren born. Jim is survived by his 3 children, 5 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and his devoted sister, Janie. He was our modern day McGuyver, with his engineering background and tremendous talent to design; he could build, rebuild, wire, repair, etc. anything that was broken. He had pride in his workmanship. He was a loving father and husband. He would do anything for his family, friends, neighbors and strangers. We love him and we will miss him dearly.
