Richard Thomas Turner, died November 21, 2018, after suffering a stroke. Until then, he was a vibrant, a still-well-toned tenor, intelligent and intellectual, 98 year old raconteur.

To his daughter, Tracey and his son, Tim, as we and he aged, he was a gift. We relied on one another, we were proud of one another, dinner guests were regaled by him. While his repertoire was vast, Irish jokes, with accent, were his favorite for years.

He will be missed by many.

In lieu of flowers donations maybe made to CarePartners Hospice Solace, PO Box 25338, Asheville, NC 28813 or the charity of your choice.

Groce Funeral Home at Lake Julian is assisting the family.
