Neil David Turner, 90, was born October 9, 1928 and raised in San Francisco by the late Gordon & Kathleen Turner.  Neil passed away peacefully on July 22, 2019 at the South Marin Kindred Care Facility, with his wife by his side.  Neil was a loving and devoted husband for the past 28 years to his wife, Cathleen.  He is survived by a son, Ian G. Turner and two granddaughters.

A graduate of Lowell HS, he went on to UC Berkeley where he studied Physical Education and Kinesiology. He later enlisted and served during the Korean War.  He was a proud member of 15 years to the Native Sons of the Golden West Fairfax Parlor 307.

Neil had a love of all sports, but a passion for basketball. He was a star player in High School, played for UC Berkeley, and went on to be a member of the first American Team to play in the Pan American Games in Argentina.
