David Benjamin Turner

The family is saddened to announce the passing on December, 27, 2014, of David Benjamin Turner.

Born July 23, 1932 Dave grew up in Kelowna and lived in Grand Forks, Golden, Surrey, New Denver, Castlegar and Penticton. Dave worked as a surveyor and draftsman most of his working life through provincial and municipal service, and later for his own business.

Predeceased by his parents Lloyd and Pearl, brothers Glenn and Bill, beloved wife Ann and daughter Kathy. Dave is survived by three children and their families: Duff (Dave) Turner (Chris), Steve Turner (Rena) and Glenda Heimbecker, stepchildren John Dobrovitz (Ingrid) and Aniko Borody . He is also survived by his sister Barbara and two brothers, Geordie and Howard, thirteen grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

Dave greatly enjoyed the company of his loved ones and took pleasure in the simple things in life. Dave liked to fish the many small creeks of the West Kootenays, watch his favourite hockey team (Habs) and bowl with his many friends. He loved to sit and talk with his neighbours in his yard and walk his and his neighbours’ dogs around Blueberry. Dave will be deeply missed by many friends and family.

By request, there will be no service, but a graveside remembrance will be held in Castlegar in the spring.

Arrangements are under the direction of Providence Funeral Home in Penticton.
