Roy P. Turner

January 5, 1935 — November 9, 2023

Roy P. Turner

88, of Camden, went to be with the Lord, Thursday, November 9, 2023.

He was born January 5, 1935 in Breathitt County, Kentucky, to the late Pleas and Lizzie (Parks) Turner.

In addition to his parents, Roy was preceded in death by his wife of 66 years, Mary Ella Turner; siblings, Sophia McIntosh, Warren G. Turner, Earl Turner, Donnie Turner, and JC Turner; and daughter-in-law, Kimberly Turner.

He is survived by his children, Marcus Turner, Theresa (Joseph) Kaluga, and Jerry Turner; grandchildren, Elizabeth (Josh), Jason (Danielle), Anthony, Talia (Beau), Heather, Tracey, Tate, and Taylor; great grandchildren, Anthony Pleas, Dejuan, Alexis, Liam, and Emory; sisters, Louise Turner and Georgia Riley; numerous nieces and nephews; and many more family and friends.

Roy was not just a member of the Masonic Lodge #159; he was an integral part of the tight-knit community that gathered there. Every Thursday, he found joy in engaging in friendly games of euchre with his fellow lodge members. His presence added warmth and laughter to these gatherings, creating bonds that went beyond the card table.

Outside of the lodge, Roy's heart belonged to the Somerville Community Church. His faith was a guiding force in his life, and he actively participated in the church's activities, finding solace and community among fellow worshippers.

Roy's devotion extended to his family, and he found immense joy in spending quality time with his loved ones. Whether it was sharing stories around the dinner table, celebrating milestones, or simply enjoying each other's company, Roy cherished every moment spent with his family.

One of Roy's closest companions was his beloved cat, Ammo. Their bond was a testament to Roy's gentle and nurturing spirit, as he found comfort and joy in the simple companionship of his feline friend.
