William Elbert Turner
We are sad to announce the passing of William (Bill) Elbert Turner from Quincy, California, on April 20, 2023 at the age of 84 after battling the disease of dementia.
He was born January 27, 1939, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. When Bill was 2 years old, his family moved to Plumas County, first residing in Butterfly Valley and later moving to Quincy. Bill attended Quincy Elementary School that is now the Plumas School District Office. After graduating Quincy Jr. Sr. High School in 1956, he served in the US Air Force from 1956-1960.
Bill moved to Chico after his service to study and complete his apprenticeship as an electrician. It was in Chico that he met his wife of 58 years, Susan Turner. They permanently moved back to Quincy in 1973. Bill and Sue have 2 daughters, Dawn Hamm (Turner) and Callene Campbell (Turner). Both daughters were born and raised in Quincy, California.
Bill retired in 2001 after working as a Union Electrician for 39 years. He loved Plumas County and all that it has to offer. He had a passion about the county that he loved to share with his daughters and grandchildren which included fishing (he loved fly fishing), hunting, camping and hiking (which he called taking a walk in the woods).
He was preceded in death by his parents William Turner, Dorothy Dunn and his step-father Robert Dunn and his two half-sisters, Sheryl (Sherri) Turner and Mary Ellen Turner. Bill is survived by his spouse, Susan Turner; daughters, Dawn Hamm and spouse Darrin, Callene Campbell and spouse Chris; grandchildren, Hayden Hedrick and his spouse Ashley, Mariah Hedrick, Cheyenne Campbell, Chenoa Campbell and Ashlyn Hedrick; half-sister, Kathy Arbogast and her spouse Jeff and several nieces and nephews.
A private family memorial service will be held at a later date.
