Daniel Turner

April 15, 1951 ~ January 28, 2020 (age 68)


Daniel Warren Turner, 68, of Bellaire passed away on Tuesday January 28, 2020 at Munson Medical Center after a battle with lung cancer.  He was born on April 15, 1951 in Detroit, MI, the son of Daniel and Wilma (Johnson) Turner.

Danny was a heavy machinery mover and rigger in the industrial industry for many years in Redford, MI before moving to Bellaire in 2013.  He loved living up north; he had a home in the woods, where blue herons would come up and peck on his door, and chickadees would eat bird food from his hand.  He was a kind, caring, soft-natured man, as well as a hard worker. He loved his family more than anything. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

Danny is survived by his sister Suzie Davies of Bellaire; two nieces, Deborah Woodbeck, and Shelley (John) Riebe; a nephew, Robert Davies; three great-nephews, Rob, Kyle, and Robert; and two great-nieces, Megan, and Elle.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Daniel and Wilma Turner.

The family will hold a private service in the future.  Interment will take place at Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit.
