DALLAS, Texas -- Evan, beloved husband, uncle, and friend, died Jan. 13, 2013, in Dallas, Texas.

Born April 28, 1925, in Mount Vernon, Maine, he was the second of three sons of Carleton Ellsworth and Lucy May Carson Turner and was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, David Carson Turner and James Carson Turner.

He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Anna Katherin Ball Turner, of Mesquite; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He joined the Marine Corps in 1942 and served our country in three conflicts: World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Evan served with the Marine Scout Bombing Squadron VMSB 333 in Ewa, Hawaii, where he was nicknamed "Photo Joe," retired from the Marines in 1969, then working for the United States Postal Service before finally retiring and settling in his childhood home in Maine, then later Mesquite.

He was a member of the Vernon Valley Masonic Lodge 99 and enjoyed hunting and fishing in his native state.

E.C., as he was known to family and friends in Maine and Texas, was jovial, loved his wife, family, friends, flying, food and wine; and is a great example to us all.

A memorial service will be at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013, at Laurel Oaks Funeral Home, 12649 Lake June Road, Mesquite, Texas. Early this summer, he will be memorialized and laid to rest in Mount Vernon. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions to the following or the charity of your choosing: Mount Vernon Food Bank, 539 Pond Road, Mount Vernon, ME 04352.
