I worked with Bob at West Park. I trusted his knowledge and judgement. He was an authentic person and his honesty of expression was refreshing. When my wife had a family crisis he helped immeasurably and for this I include her name with mine.
We have not had contact for many years since his retirement but my sense of him is large.
in fondness and respect.

My deepest condolences to Jane and his entire family, to all who knew him.

I have so many fond memories of working with Dr. Turner, such respect for his dedication. Then there were ski trips, bike rides and visits to his farm, so generous.
Thank you for all that you shared.
