D. Maurice Turner Memorial Fund

D. Maurice Turner passed away October 21, 2020.  He was a beloved husband to Daria and father to Sydnei (24) and Zach (16).  

Maurice was well known in the baseball community  as he umpired SEC and travel baseball tournaments around the country. His ability to call a game and presence on the field  was legendary-- in fact, he trained most of the umpires around the Atlanta area.

We first met  Maurice when Zach and our son were on the same baseball team.  It was evident that Maurice had not only trained umpires but especially Daria in all rules of the game. It was not only entertaining (Maurice and Daria are both very funny), but educational to sit with either one of them at a game.  Maurice  quickly became a household name as the awesome umpire who took the time to support our son on the mound, but also as a friend to our family.  The Turner's are  the type of friends you make on a sports team, yet hold dearly for a lifetime.  You are lucky if your son has played baseball with Zach. 

Please consider donating to the family to cover  basic living needs, medical bills and  Zach's education.  The family would sincerely appreciate any financial support you can give them as they process this sudden and unexpected loss. 

Rest In Peace Maurice.  You were adored and will be missed by so many.
