Roger Winslow Turner, age 86, died peacefully on August 24, 2013, surrounded by his loving son Roger, daughter-in-law Maryanne, his sister Carol, her husband Gerry, grandson Andrew, and his loving friend and tireless helper Ruta and her children. His sense of humor and irreverence were never diminished, nor was his USMC doggedness.
Roger was born in 1927 to Carl and Catherine (Cassidy) Turner in Nashua, NH. Subsequently, they moved to New London, CT where Roger attended grade school. High school was completed at Kent School, where he graduated as senior prefect (Class of ’45), maintaining lifelong ties with his classmates and his friends at the Kent alumni association.
