Donald Neron Turner

15 October , 19386 February , 2019

Surrounded by his loving family, Don passed away peacefully in Calgary, Alberta on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Born in Ottawa to his late parents, Frank and Agnes Turner, Don was a child full of life and humour, which he continued to exhibit throughout his life. He was a hardworking, energetic and compassionate man who married the love of his life, Hilary in 1962. They were blessed with three children.

In the early ‘80s, Don founded Turnmore Sanitation Inc. with his partner Dennis Morey, where he established himself as a fair and honest businessman. He was a member of the Masonic Order, gave many volunteer hours to the Calgary Stampede and enjoyed lawn bowling in Calgary and his second home in Rancho Mirage, California.

Don leaves behind to mourn his wife of 56 years, Hilary; their children Robyn (Larry), Christopher (Colette) and Mark (Ann); nine grandchildren: Travis, Richard, Daniel, Caitlin, Alexia, Thomas, Dominique, Ereka and Riley; his sister Helen McCredie and his brother Richard (Mary Jane). He was predeceased by his brother Robert.

Special thanks to Dr. Tina Cheng and unit 47 of the Tom Baker Cancer Centre.

I will miss my brother Don. I keep reflecting back when I was thirteen and Don, sixteen at the time, purchased a new winter jacket for me with his very limited resources, it was then I realized Don was a caring, loving brother.
Don never changed, he gave to family, friends and those in need be it friendship or support.
Love you Bro

Hilary & family,

My father and I were very sad to hear about Don's passing. You both were such lovely neighbours while I lived at Chateau on the Green. I remember always looking out for Don in the Stampede parade! He was also so kind to take my dad to a Flames game while he was visiting from Indonesia. A memory he remembers to this day.

Our thoughts are with you.

Danielle & Dwayne
