Born on October 7, 1942 in Sampson County, Ray was the son of the late Amos and Janie Bell Lucas Turner. He was a Maintenance Mill Operator with Carroll’s Foods, Inc. for twenty-three years. He had a passion for the rodeo, especially calf-roping. He loved vegetable gardening and riding his horses, especially his Quarter-horse, “Granny”. He was a quiet, humble man with a heart of gold. He will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his wife, Alice Taylor Turner; Son, David Ray Turner of Clinton; Grandsons: Tyler Ray Turner, Elijah Jacobs and Brian Michael Richards; one sister, Mary Grace Turner; and two brothers: Donald Ray Turner and William Lee Turner, all of Clinton. He was also blessed with a great-granddaughter, Lana Jacobs; and a great-grandson, who is due to arrive very soon, Brantly Allen Richards.
The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service on Sunday afternoon, beginning at 2 pm; and other times at his home.
The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to Community Hospice for their kindness and compassion shown to Ray during his illness.
