James Oliver Turner, of Elgin Oregon, passed away peacefully on November 29, 2017, at the age of 90 surrounded by his loving family. He was born on November 3, 1927 in Union, Oregon. Jim lived a full life and loved nothing more than his family and being in the outdoors of Eastern Oregon.

Also remembering his guidance and teaching abilities are his countless former students who carry on his passion for learning and striving to always do the very best. Jim is survived by his devoted wife Kathryn Joyce of 67 years, his children, grand children and great-grandchildren who will carry on the legacy this amazing man created.
