Born on June 28, 1951 in Hagerstown, he was the son of the late Mary Jane (Cook) and Irvin Lester Turner.
Charles was a graduate of South Hagerstown High School. After retiring from CONRAIL, he retired from the Fort Detrick Commissary. He spent 23 years at each job.
Charles was a member of Williamsport Redman Lodge 84, Goodwill Athletic Club, Williamsport Moose Lodge 2462, and American Legion Post 42. He enjoyed playing shuffleboard, horseshoes, and cards, and was a lifelong Baltimore Orioles fan. He loved traveling to warm places, especially the Outer Banks, visiting baseball stadiums, going to spring training, and most of all, spending time with his family and friends. Charlesy never met a stranger.
He is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Kristina (Itnyre) Turner; two daughters, Julie Turner Starkey (Rob) and Erin Turner Potts (Joe) all of Williamsport; six grandchildren, Emma Kate Starkey, Zoë Elizabeth Vogt, Benjamin Charles Starkey, Halee Marie Vogt, Seth Alan Potts, and Cooper Robert Starkey; two brothers, Richard Turner (Carol) and Steven Turner (Amie); three sisters, Sally Loomis (Jim), Nancy Saunders (John), and Edna Mulligan, and many nieces, nephews, and friends.
He will be dearly missed for his sense of humor, giving heart, and helping hand. Parties, holidays, and every single day will be duller without him.
A celebration of life will be scheduled at a later date, when sunshine and crabs are in abundance. Wings, beer, French fries, popcorn, jokes, happiness, and memories—all of Charles’ favorite things--will be on the menu.
