I grew up with with Billy and George Turner in Lake Placid. Even after we all grew up every time I came into the neighborhood to visit my mom and dad I would see Mr Turner out taking care of his yard. I always made time to stop and say hello to him and see how he was doing. Haha! He had this old truck in his garage forever! He always said he was going to get around to it someday. He was a great guy and I have fond memories of him and his wife. So sorry to hear about his passing. RIP Mr. Turner!
