    2010-07-19 Worcester Firefighter Kevin M.Turner LODD

    Worcester Fire Fighter, Kevin M. Turner, 39 of Worcester passed away unexpectedly July 19, 2010 in his home after suffering a heart attack.
    Kevin Mack Turner was born October 26, 1970 in St. Louis, Missouri to Jacqueline Marie Turner who preceded him in death in 2001. He was the oldest of three children (Alexander and Angela). The sudden death of his mother was very hard on Kevin, but she was very proud of them all. Kevin received his education in the St. Louis City Public School system. Immediately upon graduating high school he enlisted into the United States Army where he proudly served two tours of duty during both Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom.
    Upon his discharge from the military, at which time he was stationed at Fort Devens, MA, Kevin decided to make Worcester his new home. It is here that on September 11, 2000 he was able to fulfill his life long dream of becoming a firefighter. February 1, 2004 he was transferred to Webster Square Station, Engine 5, where he remained. Kevin was very honored to become a member of the Worcester Fire Department where he made many new friends, associates, co-hearts, and adopted family members (his fellow firefighters). Kevin served proudly with the utmost respect, honor, dedication, and loyalty the citizens of Worcester not only as a firefighter, but also as a mentor and volunteer with the youth of his new community. Kevin received an award for his volunteer service from the YMCA for an outstanding job well done. He always wanted to have a positive effect on the lives of young people so that they could have a better future. He wanted to prove the fact that you are a product of what you make yourself, not a result of from which you came. Kevin lived his life to be an example just for that reason. He received many other accommodations, recognitions, and special awards both for his military service as a Special Forces Communication Officer, and as a Worcester Fire Department firefighter. Kevin was very proud of all his accomplishments, but he never ceased to improve himself. He was currently enrolled in the Quinsigamond Community College studying to obtain a degree in Fire Science, and simultaneously preparing to take the test to become a lieutenant in the Worcester Fire Department. Even though he had been acting lieutenant on many occasions and did an excellent job, Kevin always aimed for the stars.
    On February 21, 2008 in Las Vegas, NV, Kevin married his girlfriend of seven years, Kimberly Myles. He had already been a father to his two step-daughters Jalisha Myles and Fayth Myles for as many years. Kevin had no biological children, but there was never a child he met that he did not consider worthy to be his own.
    On July 19, 2010 Kevin passed away creating a huge void in the lives of everyone he had ever met. He leaves to mourn his wife, Kimberly, one brother Alexander Turner and his wife Laverne, one sister Angela Turner, two step-daughters Jalisha Myles, Fayth Myles, a special niece Alexis Turner (which Kevin affectionately named
