Ralph Edward Turner, age 80, of Big Laurel, went home to be with his Lord on Monday, February 3, 2014. He was born in Big Laurel on June 14, 1933 to the late Frank and Myrtle Sizemore Turner. Ralph worked as a logger, miner and for 50 years as a dozer operator, where he was known as “Grubby,” before retiring. He loved fishing and took great pride in planting and tending his garden. He attended the Church of God Prophecy. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather to his wife and family. Once you met Ralph, you would fall in love with his kind spirit and generous heart. Our loss is truly heaven’s gain. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his siblings, George Turner, Isabelle Boggs, Ethel Cornett, Darrell Turner, and Joe Turner; and his son-in-law, Hollis Boggs.
