August 7, 1924 – July 3, 2015
Edward Bey “Ted” Turner, born in Morden, Manitoba, Aug 7 1924, passed away suddenly at his new home at Berwick By The Sea, Campbell River, July 3, 2015.
Best known in Campbell River for his extraordinary service in the Royal Canadian Air Force Bomber Command during World War II, Ted is also remembered in Campbell River for his 16 years of service with Island Air and later with Air BC, beginning in 1966.
He was also a proud supporter of the Royal Canadian Legion here, a regular attender at Remembrance Day parades as a veteran.
Survived by his son Mark, of Victoria, BC, three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, he is predeceased by his wife Marie, all of his five brothers and two sisters, and four of the six other Halifax bomber air crew who all survived a full “tour” of 35 operational missions with him during the war.
A Memorial Service has been arranged at the Legion Hall at 1 p.m. July 19. Donations in lieu of flowers please to the B.C. Lung Association.
