Alfred Chester Turner

Mr. Alfred Chester Turner, age 77, of Woolwine passed away Monday, January 29, 2024, unexpectedly at his home.  He was born on January 22, 1947, in Stuart to the late Chester Turner and Mildred Thomas Turner.  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers Oscar Turner and Albert Lane Turner, as well as infant brother, Stephen.


     Surviving are his wife of 55 years, Aylees Belcher Turner (“Love”) of the home; four children, Timothy Turner; Nancy Turner Belcher (David); Stephen Turner (Charity); and Matthew Turner (Jennifer); six grandchildren, Cole, Layton, Logan, Lucas, Jillian and Juliet; and one brother, Mitcheal; sisters-in-law Shelley, Joan, Carol, and several nieces and nephews in addition to a few great nieces and nephews.

 

      Alfred was a diesel heavy equipment mechanic, who spent 34 years working in Nome, Alaska. Further, Mr. Turner was a long-time member of the Smith River Rescue Squad.  He was a devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Stuart branch. He served a wide variety of leadership roles within the church and enjoyed sharing the gospel with as many people as he could. He had a passion for service and spent countless hours giving back to his community. Indeed, Alfred never met a stranger. He was well known for riding the roads, wheeling and dealing while hunting parts for his Power Wagons, a passion he shared with his sons and grandsons. Mr. Turner always had a two-dollar bill and gold coins to offer up for payment or for any children he might meet.
