Gary was born on January 26, 1951, in New Middletown to the late George Ford and Ila Rae (Ewing) Turner.

He was a man of many hats, starting his career with American Ambulance as an EMT and then becoming a police officer for the Beaver Township Police Department for six years. He worked as a construction project manager for 35 years with Sears and continued on with Dollar General until his retirement. Gary was an avid outdoorsman and fisherman, cherishing his retirement with friends and family in Conneaut, OH, and Santee, SC.

Gary is survived by his only son Daniel (Bernadette) Turner of Youngstown, with whom he made his home, along with his grandsons Daniel Ryan Turner of Youngstown and Bryce Ford Turner, both of whom he cherished with all of his heart. He also leaves his brother, Lester (Debbie) Turner of Maricopa, AZ.

Gary leaves behind the memories of love, laughter, and good times that he shared with many people that became family across the way.
