Ronald Wayne Turner, age 73, of Sebring, passed away August 5, 2020. A lifelong Florida resident, Ron was born on July 21, 1947 in Bradenton to Homer and Betty Turner. He proudly served in the US Army. He started his term in Korea and ended his military career in the Presidential Honor Guard, (The Old Guard). Ron went on to become a supervisor for Coastal Fuels before his gift of gab led him to a second career in sales.
