Carl Willard Turner was born on June 30, 1935 in Cameron, Texas. He was the youngest of seven children born to Charlie and Mabel Turner, who preceded him in death. Also preceding him in death are his brothers, Alvin Turner, Charlie Turner, Odis Turner and Ira Lee Turner.

Carl graduated school at an early age from O. J. Thomas High School. He attended Huston-Tillotson College in 1956 and was a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. He later joined the U. S. Army and during this time he met and married Yvetta Young of Austin. To this union, there were three sons. Carl held a variety of teaching positions to include the School for the Deaf, Blind, and Orphan School and IBM Company in Austin.

He enjoyed participating in many sports, but his passion was golf. Before and after his retirement, he actively pursued his passion for the game with the Capital City Golf Association, where he won tournaments around the United States. He also taught golf lessions at Bergstrom Golf Course and other private facilities.

Carl was active in his community and participated in numerous local projects. In later years, he pursued his love of dominoes and cards by playing often with family and friends who gathered at Owen's Garage, Conley-Guerrero and Rosewood Zaragoza Senior Centers.

He leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife of over 50 years Yvetta Young Turner; three sons Ronnie (Lisa) of Houston, Carl III of Austin, and Alton (Connie) of Austin; two sisters, Morene Douglas (Marvin) of Austin and Velma Jewell Johnson of Tacoma Washington; six grandchildren and two great grandchildren; and a host of family and friends.
