David Eugene Turner, 74, of Pittsfield, Pa, passed away on Monday, December 14, 2020 at Warren General Hospital.
He was born on November 4, 1946, in Warren, Pa, a son to the late Omer Eugene and Violet (Payne) Turner. Dave was a 1964 graduate of Youngsville High School and then went on to serve in the US Marine Corp from 1966-1967 during the Vietnam War where he was wounded. He was the owner of Turner Enterprises and co-owner of Stateline Speedway. He was president of the board at Warren Electric Cooperative and a board member of the Allegheny Electric Cooperative, a past member of PREA, a charter member of Warren Aviation Club and a member of the Republican Party. Dave was also a Pittsfield Twp. Supervisor and an avid supporter of the Warren County Fair. Dave enjoyed racing, hunting, operating equipment and farming, but his greatest joy was watching his granddaughter ride horses and his grandson race go-karts.
He is survived by his children, Ronda Turner and her companion, Steve Carr and Curtis “Chip” (Kristy) Turner, both of Pittsfield; his grandchildren, Kassidy and Jay David Turner, both of Pittsfield; his siblings, Elizabeth Holme of Erie, Pa, Linda Litten of MD, Lois Turner of TN, Janice (John) Wilcox of SC, Dale (Nancy) Turner of NC and Daniel Turner of Meadville, Pa.

In addition to his parents, Dave was preceded in death by his second parents, Clarence and Mabel Kellogg, Sadie Kellogg, his siblings, Carol, Margaret and Douglas Turner and Joe Kellogg and a brother-in-law, Tom Nelson.
