We will miss you. You were a wonderful husband to my sis in law and loving dad to your 4 children.
MY UNCLE OCIE WILL BE DEEPLY BE MISSED BUT HE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTON
SO HE CAN REST EASY NOW WE LOVE YOU ALWAYS
I’ve known Mr. Turner since I was a child. He and his wife were always so nice to me. His daughter LaRayne has been my dear friend since childhood. His father-in-law, the late Rev. B. J. Jones was my pastor when I was growing up in Idabel. Mr. Turner was well respected by the people from Idabel who knew him. This great man of God will be missed by many. He definitely will be missed at the school reunions in Idabel. RIP Mr. Turner. We’ll see you on the other side.
Our heartfelt condolences. Ocie & Marjorie! We did not say one name without the other. Whatever the situation/request, the two (as one) were always on hand, supporting the “Hewitt” family needs. May Ocie’s soul rest in peace & rise in glory.
My sincere condolences to the Turner family.
