David was a remarkable person. I feel blessed to have had such a loving, caring and giving father figure in my life. He inspired me in many ways. His love and support helped mold me into the person I am today. Dave will always hold a special place in my heart.

I will always remember his charm and smile. He took such pride in his garden and plants and he always gave you a warm welcome. I’ll cherish the good memories of great food and laughs and I pray for God to comfort Cecilia , and all his family during this difficult time.

David was my first love and father of my daughter Stephanie Ann (Edds) Turner born 9/30/1977. She has 2 wonderful sons Hunter Turner born 1996 and Fisher Turner 2002. Although they are not mentioned in his obituary, they are also affected by the loss of a father and grandfather. He was a friend to many from the Marshall, IL area where he attended High School and graduated. RIP David
