Eugene (Gene) H. Turner

Gene Turner, a member of St. Paul's Catholic Church, in Smithville, was born Feb. 18, 1929 in Corpus Christi, Texas and died March 23, 2009.

The family and friends of Gene are invited to a memorial service at the Seaside Funeral Home, in Corpus Christi, Texas on Friday March 27th, 2009 at 3 pm.

Gene was preceded in death by his son, Matthew Aaron Turner, brothers John, William and Henry Turner and sister Myrtle Turner.

Gene is survived by his loving wife of 29 years, Judy and sister Aurora Pearl Fox. He is also survived by children Elizabeth Atkins, Johanna Turner, Mark Turner (Lori), Leslie Turner, Derek Tolmachoff, Corey Tolmachoff (April), Tyson Tolmachoff (Erica), 24 grandchildren and 14 great grand children.

Gene worked in photography most of his adult life, graduated from Corpus Christi High School, attended Del Mar College and served his country as an army combat photographer in Korea. He enjoyed country/western music dancing, fishing and genology (sic), but the joy of his life was golf, and is credited with four "holes in one".

Please join us in celebrating Gene's life and this soul in transition.

In lieu of flowers, a donation to the American Lung Association or Hospice Austin's Christopher House would be appreciated.
