Julius Turner was a member of St. Pius X Catholic Church. He lived his life with simplicity and faith in God. He retired as an earth mover of heavy equipment and was penned as, “An artist with dirt.” He worked on many area projects including Carver Hawkeye Arena and I-380. Growing up on a farm he was comfortable outdoors in his garden and flower beds with a family pet nearby. He was a self-taught man and succeeded in creating and fixing anything from carpentry and mechanics of any kind, a “Julius” of all trades. He set his values and lived by them.
He enjoyed his large family and grandchildren and was a good husband, Dad, grandpa and a memorable friend to many. We are going to miss him, greatly.
