Obituary for David Michael Turner

David M. ("Mike") Turner was born December 28, 1948, to John Richard ("Dick") Turner and Rozanne Truscott Turner. After graduating from Holdenville High School, he attended several schools before ultimately attaining his law degree from OU in 1975. He was admitted to the Oklahoma Bar Association in 1975 and enjoyed the practice of law in Holdenville, serving largely as a criminal defense attorney. Subsequently, he enjoyed another passion, "uniting good people with good properties" in the real estate business. Mike was active in many civic organizations, but was most dedicated to serving his church. He proudly declared himself "an honorary member of the Barnard Memorial United Methodist women" an organization loved by this mother and grandmothers. One of this greatest pleasures was spending time with his family and friends at their summer cabin on the North Fork of the Frying Pan River in Pitkin County, Colorado.

Mike was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Jean Turner Schreier. He is survived by this brother, John Truscott (Scott) Turner and his wife, Gloria, of Holdenville, and his brother-in-law James R. Schreier, Baltimore. He is also survived by his nieces and nephews Gina Garrett, Emily Carpenter, Ryan Turner, Jake Turner, Cory Mian and Jesse Schreier, their spouses and their children.

Mike was very active in his community having served as president of the Holdenville Kiwanis Club, as president of the Holdenville Society of Painters and Sculptors and as president of the Holdenville Education Foundation. He also was elected as Holdenville City Clerk and was appointed to the Holdenville City Council. He was a proud "Yellow Dog Democrat" and served in all positions in the county Democratic party.

Mike's family invites you to his Memorial service at Barnard Memorial United Methodist Church at the corner of North Gulf Street and East 8th Street in Holdenville on Thursday September 5, 2019 at 2:00 PM. Mike's wishes were that there should be a time dedicated to music, singing and a celebration of gratitude for a life well lived.

Services are under the direction of Hudson-Phillips Funeral Home Holdenville, Oklahoma.

Mike hoped that memorials might be made to BMUMC (Barnard Memorial United Methodist Church) United Methodist Women in Holdenville, OK or to the Holdenville Education Foundation, P.O. Box 641, Holdenville, OK 74848.
