Victor Turner, Jr. Obituary

With great sorrow, we announce the passing of Victor Terell Turner, affectionately known to many as "Big Daddy," on March 20, 2024. Born in South Bend, IN, on April 6, 1999, Victor was a beacon of love and spirit in the lives of many.

A gifted actor, Victor's talents extended to his passion for security work and his aspirations of becoming a police officer. His spirit was not only spirited and engaging, but it was also infused with a deep love for his family and friends. Victor was a thoughtful young man who dedicated himself to peace and harmony within his family circle. His loving nature was evident in the strong bonds he formed with his loved ones and his relentless pursuit of unity amidst differences. Victor's love for life and exploration was infectious, recently igniting a passion for travel and a desire to visit as many states as possible.

His love for adventure was only matched by his love for his family and friends. Victor’s talent shone brightly in his acting and his involvement with the church mimes. He was a devoted Baptist, and his faith guided him throughout his life. In the words of the scripture that Victor held close to his heart, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." - Philippians 4:13. Victor's faith was not only a testament to his devotion but also a source of strength and inspiration to those around him.

Victor is survived by his parents, Victor Sr. and Gwen, his step-mother Jackie, his sisters Kasharel Bradley, Jasmine Cannady and Shantel Craine, his step-brother Saveon Wilson. His boyfriend Matthew Boyd. He is also survived by his aunts Andrea Adams and Sheila Turner, his grandmother Maxcine Turner, his grandfather J.C. Turner, his uncles Jorell Turner and Eugene Cannady, his grandfather Geary Cannady, his brother-in-law Excell Hazard. He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Denda Winston. Victor's life was a vivid tapestry of love, spirit, talent, and thoughtfulness.
