Liam Christian Turk, born January 8, 2006, died in his home in Jacksonville, Florida on March 17, 2020, after a three year battle with epilepsy.

He was an extremely talented and active 14 year old guitar student at LaVilla School of the Arts, and had recently been accepted to Douglas Anderson School of the Arts. Liam was also a beautiful singer and prolific songwriter for his age. He was a loving son, brother, and grandson, with a kind and gentle spirit. He spent his free time writing and playing music, skateboarding, and just enjoying life. He was a brilliant artist and was full of love, especially for animals. He had a passion for helping people in need, specifically the homeless, and was always thinking of ways he could give to others who were less fortunate.

He is predeceased by his paternal grandfather, Rev. Dr. Richard Martin Turk and paternal aunt, Melissa Turk Beasley. He is survived by his parents, Ryan Turk and Angela Binkley Turk, his siblings, Jude and Jillian Turk, his maternal grandparents, William E. Binkley, Jr. and Barbara Jefferies Binkley, paternal grandmother, Rev. Davette Turk, and maternal uncle and aunt William E.

I remember when Angela would sometimes bring Liam into the office after school. He would draw pictures for us. He was an amazing artist! I remember him as being a kind, sweet boy. My heart goes out to Angela, Ryan, Jillian, and all those who loved him.

I became close friends with Liam in a short amount of time and I can honestly say I will never know anyone like him. He was extremely talented and never failed to put a smile on my face (as you can see in the photo below) I'll forever be greatful for knowing him and having him as one of my bestfriends. There was so much more we never got to do but I'm thankful for the fun times we did have. I miss you everyday and I love you Liam. Rest In Peace Bestfriend <3

My favorite memory was the night after Jack and Liams audition for DA. I remember i was there only for an interview but after we left my mom told me that we were going to go eat dinner with Jack and Liam, and at first I wasn’t excited. But I went anyways, later that evening i had a good time. I’ve always been around Jack because our parents are really good friends. I didn’t really know Liam but I knew he was best friends with Jack. I had no classes with him over the years but i would talk to him at lunch when i got the chance. That night i truly saw his relationship with Jack and i saw how close they were. Liam was kind to me , with a sense of humor of course that him and Jack shared. Liams mom was also extremely nice , even though i had never met her ether. -I am so very sorry that he is gone because he was a true light to this world with a lot of talent .... much love to his family.

Liam, I never knew you that well, but last year in songwriting I always loved hearing your voice and hearing you're guitar playing. My heart hurts knowing you aren't here physically to inspire the world with your music, but I do know that the music we do have is amazing and very inspirational. You always knew how to make me laugh in songwriting, and I'll never forget you or how beautiful your voice was. -Alicia Royce

Although I only met Liam once at Kona, he seemed like a very great friend to have. I wish I could have gotten to know him better, but he left this world too soon. I am praying for his family and close friends. My family and I are very sorry for your loss. He will be missed by so many kids at LaVilla.
