In Memorial

Howard Stanley Turner of Savannah, Georgia and significant other of Ann Elder made his transition on Thursday August 24, 2017 at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

Born in Bartow, Florida, he was the son of the late Ivy and Thelma Turner. He was also preceded in death by his younger sister, Wanda Elaine.

Howard was a true southern gentleman. He never met a stranger and was a kind soul that would do anything to help you if needed, always looking out for others. He was a Master Gardener and a Board Member at the Savannah -Ogeechee Canal. He was a humanitarian and an environmentalist, promoting the education of native plants and animals to young and old alike, but his favorite thing was being a stay at home Papa taking care of his girls, Skylynn and Micah, whom he dearly loved with all his heart.

He is survived by his siblings: Johnny and Linda Tucker, Ivey (Petey) and Janice Turner, Bobby Turner and Cindy, Lorrie Holland and Mike, Brenda Hankinson and Rueben, and Paul and Cynthia Turner, and many nieces, nephews and extended family members.

Anne and all family members my heart is with you. Howard and I had a lot of good times growing up. He was a great big brother, always making sure I was okay. Offering his opinion on my dates… yes he did. I love him and know he’s at peace.

Living several hours away from family surely has its disadvantages. We miss out on daily life, on special events and the closeness that comes with being in a close vacinity of one another. But it has a special way of helping us to hold on to memories of time well spent with our loved ones. I will always remember Uncle Howard being kind, smiling, and offering big hugs when he saw you. He was a good soul and will surely be missed by many. Many prayers are being sent to our loved ones in Savannah! We love you all

Howard was one of the best people I have ever met. He was a great friend. He was always kind to everyone and treated everyone like his friend. I miss him more than I can say. His death has left a void in this world than can never be filled.

Truly one of the last of a dying breed, a Southern gentleman, soft spoken and kind to his very core. May your wonderful memories of him comfort you Ann and all his family and friends during this difficult time.
