“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
Calvin Turner, devoted husband, father, brother, and uncle transitioned from this earthly life to an everlasting life with his heavenly father on Thursday, August 8, 2019. Calvin was born on July 28, 1955 to the late Thelma and Felton Turner.
