Virginia Beach- Mr. James “Jim” Turner died peacefully in hospice on January 19, 2018 in Virginia Beach, VA at the age of 75 after a brief illness.

Jim suffered a debilitating stroke 20 years ago but was able to spend his time volunteering for the Virginia Beach Police Department for several years.  He and Gail moved to Gila Bend, Arizona where they managed an RV park for two years before moving on to Casa Grande and eventually back to Virginia Beach.

Jim was an avid reader, crossword puzzle enthusiast and also enjoyed writing articles for a community news flyer and for a publication in Arizona.
