William W. “Woody,” “Bill” Turner, 75, passed away Sunday, Feb. 16, 2020, in Virginia Beach, surrounded by his loving family and friends. He was born Oct. 26, 1944, to William B. Turner Jr. and Mae E. Turner in Norfolk. William had one brother, and is survived by Thomas Turner.
William was known by his family and many friends as Woody or Bill. Woody graduated from Princess Anne high school in Virginia Beach. Woody married the love of his life, Gail, on Feb.15, 1965, and they resided in Virginia Beach together for the next 55 years. Woody and Gail have one daughter, Katherine Turner Ross. Woody’s family was his everything. He enjoyed spending time with his wife and daughter doing family activities; his favorite was Taekwondo, and he achieved a 2nd degree black belt along with his wife and daughter. Woody liked to travel and you could guarantee if you asked him where he wanted to go for vacation, every time he would say Florida. He loved the warm weather and white sandy beaches.
Family visitation will be held from 2 to 5 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 22, at his daughter’s home, 3000 Mount Pleasant Road, Chesapeake. Please feel free to stop by during the Saturday’s visitation or anytime in the future to share fun stories and memories about Woody and celebrate his life.
