Donald (Renegade) Turner III, 59, of Wheatland, Oklahoma, went home to be with the lord on December the 3rd, of 2020.
Don was born on November the 6th, 1961, in Stafford, Virginia. He was lovingly adopted by parents, Donald Turner Jr., of Grapevine, TX, and Mary Evelyn (Sis) Jefferson Turner, of Columbus, GA, at six months old. In 1969, the family relocated to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
He leaves as his legacy, three beautiful children: Casey Ferris and husband, Josh Ferris, of Tulsa, Chase Turner and wife, Chelsi Turner, of Newkirk, Brady Turner and wife, Alexandra Turner, of Newkirk, as well as numerous happy and healthy grandchildren. He also leaves behind, to cherish his memory, three loving siblings: Mary Beth Barton and husband, Donald Barton, of Edmond, Rachel Oliphant and husband, Christian Oliphant, of Dallas, TX, Jim Turner and wife, Christina Turner, of Paradise, California and numerous nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, grand-nephews, great-grand-nieces and great-grand nephews that loved him dearly. His family remember him for his amazing sense of humor and for always being the kind of guy who would give the shirt off of his back to anyone who needed it.
He was preceded in death by his beloved mother, Mary Evelyn (Sis) Jefferson Turner, and by his best buddy/cherished pet schnauzer, Harley Turner.
Don was a dedicated long-haul truck driver for many years of his life. He was also a proudly certified EMT and Volunteer Firefighter for the town of Newkirk, Oklahoma. In his spare time, Don enjoyed riding motorcycles, collecting Harley-Davidson memorabilia and spending time with his trucking and biker brothers alike. Don will be missed tremendously by many.

"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever." -Psalm 23
We will always carry your memory in our hearts, Don.
