CHARLES TURNER HAMILTON LAKES- Charles M. Turner of Hamilton Lakes and Indian River, MI passed away September 19, 2009 at this home in Indian River, MI. Charles Migaud was born May 13, 1918 in Chicago IL., son of the late Charles and Pearl (Truscott) Migaud. When Charlie was three, his father died and in 1924, Pearl married Herbert Thomas Turner who adopted him. Charlie attended York High School and graduated from Elmhurst College where he met Margaret Anne Campbell. They were married October 5, 1941 in Elmhurst IL. She preceded him in death on August 8, 2009. Charles served as a naval supply officer on the destroyer Nicholas II in the South Pacific during WWII. He returned and worked for the Public Health Office in the Veteran’s Administration. He completed his MBA at Northwestern University. They moved more than a dozen times as Charles pursued a distinguished career in hospital administration with the VA. With each move, Charlie would remodel the new house to better fit his growing family. While he was the VA hospital administrator at Iron Mountain, Charlie and Anne fell in love with the UP. In 1970 they discovered and remodeled a cottage at Lake Mary near Vulcan, Mi which became their summer retirement home, the most permanent home they ever had. They wintered in Naples, Fl. and later in Indian River, Mi. At the cottage the grandchildren loved it when Grandpa Charlie, driving the riding mower, would put them in a cart for a ride around the circular driveway. Charlie enjoyed meeting and chatting with neighbors and people he and Anne met while touring the beautiful U.P. The last several years Charlie and Anne were cared for by his beloved daughter, Marian and her husband, Frank. Charlie died just six weeks after Anne, his wife of 67 years. Charles is survived by his son, Thomas Charles (Francie) of Morris MN and their children, Gregory (Jennifer) of Steinbach Manitoba, Elizabeth (Nick) Larrabee of Morris and Anthony of Minneapolis; son Lawrence (Kim) of Brookfield WI and their children, Jennifer (Mustapha) Omar of Minneapolis, Julie of WI, Jessica (Andrew Carmichael) of Maryland and Andrew; and daughter, Marian (Frank) Holes of Indian River MI and their children, Frank (Michelle) of Indian River, Margaret (Mike) Bowe of East Jordan and Michael (Jennifer) of Lexington MI. Also five great grandchildren: Lily Krahn, James and Sarah Holes, and Nathalie Holes and Preston Schlke.

James Britt, pastor of Grace United Methodist Church, officiating. Interment will follow at the Norway Township Cemetery.
