James “Jim” Turner

James “Jim” Turner, 74, of Williamsburg, passed away on September, 25, 2021, of natural causes.

Jim was born in Kearny, NJ, living throughout the state until 1988, when he moved with his family to Williamsburg, where he established life-long friendships in Longhill Woods and St. Georges communities. Jim was an avid card player, and could be often found sitting at the card table playing Hollywood Gin, Cribbage, or Bridge. Music was another love of his, and his taste ranged from Sinatra to the tunes of the 50’s/60’s. He was constantly making his own music, whether it be by singing, whistling, or humming some tune wherever he went. Above all, his greatest joy in life was his family and spending time with his grandchildren.

Jim was preceded in death by his sisters, Carol Pollard and Virginia Gregory. He is survived by his wife, Francine Turner; son, J. Austin Turner and his wife Jieun Shim; daughter, Katelyn Y. Voglewede and her husband Andrew; sister, Norma Boehm and her husband Raymond; and grandchildren, Carson and Cora Turner, Natalie, Zachary, Nicholas, and Samantha Voglewede.

A memorial service will be held at King of Glory Lutheran Church on Longhill Road in Williamsburg, on Saturday, October 9, 2021 at 1:00PM, followed by light refreshments. Inurnment will take place at a later date at Arlington National Cemetery.
