My condolences to the family of Bob Turgeon on the loss of such a warm and gentle hearted man. My dad, Harry Young, and Bob were lifelong friends who spent many hours together in camaraderie, adventure, and mischief. I always remember Bob, impeccably dressed with a friendly smile, who never seemed to forget a face or name no matter how long it had been since he had last seen them. He will be sadly missed and always remembered as a special friend to our family.
