Dr. Turned died yesterday, June 20th, 2005. For those of you who did not know him personally, he was the Director of College Advising for the past few years. He had been suffering from some type of cancer. I have heard that he was ready to go.

I knew him a little better than most. He was one of my advisors on my Ireland mission trip the Spring Break of '04. He was a great man - always caring about others and trying to help us have the most meaningful trip. I will miss him. Culver will miss him. He was a valuable member of the community.

Rest in Peace Dr. O'Neal Turner.

i think he actually had quite a bad rep amongst people who didn't know him. he was an extremely hard man, but he played 'the game' by its rules and treated you accordingly... i still recall the intense feelings of anticipation when we were getting ready to go to Ohio as part of the ESU interviews... six hours in the backseat of a car with Dr. Turner changed my life FOREVER. haha!

i hope he passed away peacefully, he deserved it.
