James W. Turner
1967 - 2020
Turner, James W., - 52, of Atlantic City, and Northfield passed away unexpectedly on Friday, September 18, 2020. Jim was born on November 6, 1967, in Mt. Holly, NJ. Jim grew up in EHT, graduating from Atlantic Christian School. He began his apprenticeship in Sprinkler Fitters Local Union No. 669 in 1988. Jim spent the majority of his career with Rich Fire Protection. In 2014, Jim was elected as Business Agent for District 10 of Local 669. This was, by far, Jim's greatest accomplishment in his working career. Nothing brought Jim greater joy than to watch his children play sports and to play soccer with his team. He loved to watch Patrick play baseball or soccer and Alyssa play soccer or run. The fields will be silent now with JT gone. Jim leaves to cherish his memories: his children, Patrick and Alyssa, their mom, Suzy, and faithful companions Riley and Clarissa, all of Northfield; brother Bill (Wendy) of KS; sister Heather (Joey) of Hammonton; and parents Deborah and Thomas Turner of WV. Jim is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. He will be sadly missed by his countless brothers and sisters of Local 669. A visitation will be held on Thursday, September 24, 2020, from 1pm-3pm, at the George H. Wimberg Funeral Home, 1707 New Road, Linwood. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to www.spreadthelovefoundation.com. Condolences may be extended to the family at ghwimberg.com

This came as an utter shock to me! I'll never get over it. Jimmy & I met in 7th grade & have been close friends for 41 years. We could go months & not speak then when we caught up it was like we didn't miss a beat. I got to know Suzy very well. Our families spent some times together having dinner or a BBQ. Jimmy was a true friend & I will never forget him. He's constantly on my mind. I send my condolences to his parents (Tom & Debbie)- you raised a wonderful man!, as well as Heather & Billy, & of course to Suzy, Patrick & Alyssa. He was the kind of father every man should strive to be! Jimmy, I will never forget you, our secrets, our memories, and great times as buds! I love you! To the family, my heart aches for all of you! Sending you all love & peace! God bless! I pray for all of you! Xoxo Deenie

We just found out about Jim and we are so sorry and shocked. My daughters (Kim and Deenie) went to Atlantic Christian School with him. Jim would occasionally stop in to say hello to us. He was such a sweetheart and very nice man. Our condolences to Jim’s family, he will be sadly missed....

I got to know Jim first through my brother. Jim was good friends with Martin Lampe. Then I would see him at my job at Harrah's. He always had a smile on his face. He was so proud of his children. My daughter played soccer, so we would always talk about soccer. I am truly sorry for your loss. Thinking of you and your family during this difficult time.

I have had the honor of meeting him through my union at Teamsters Local 331and the pleasure of talking with him for the past several years. He was such a pleasant person and I am lost for words. Thinking of you all during this sad time.
