Biographical history

Ronald Hudson Turner was one of the sons in the R. Turner and Sons Ltd. business in Salmon Arm BC. He was born in Salmon Arm in 1913 to Robert and Maude (McGuire) Turner, who were early residents involved in the orchard industry. With his brother Edward “Eddie” Charles, Ronald Turner remained active in the orchard business but he also worked as a surveyor in the province.

In 1946, Ronald married June Lillian Gillis from Sicamous and they then had a son, Robert Gerald Turner, and daughters, Glenna Harriet and Janice Louise.

After the death of his father in 1950, Ronald and Eddie Turner carried on the R. Turner and Sons Ltd. business. It was becoming more involved with real estate transactions as the orchard business declined following the “Big Freeze” of 1950. After the death of Eddie Turner, this business continued with other family members, including Eddie’s widow, Eileen.

Ronald remained living on Turner orchard property until his death in 2013.
