Mr. Turkington was born in Tampa, Florida and was raised in Temple Terrace, Florida. He lived in Tallahassee and Atlanta before moving to Lake Eufaula in Henry County, Alabama in 2019. Mr. Turkington was a member of Lakeside Christian Fellowship. He retired from Chattahoochee Technical College in Marietta, Georgia as an Instructor in Industrial Electrical Technology. In earlier years, Mr. Turkington retired from the Florida State Board of Administration as a Senior Treasury Operations Specialist. He was preceded in death by his parents, Albert E.

Mike was an avid pen collector and a voracious reader with an insatiable appetite for learning.  He was a wonderful, loving husband, father, and grandfather with a great sense of humor.  Mike was kind hearted and always had a smile and an optimistic attitude.  Ask him how he was and he would always say, “I’m Great!”  He will be sorely missed, but we rejoice that he is with Jesus now!
