Turner, Richard “Rick” David

June 16, 1954 — December 3, 2020

Richard David Turner “Rick”, age 66, left this earth for a much better place to be with his Heavenly Father on December 3, 2020 in Kansas City, Missouri.

His greatest accomplishment was his family. Rick lived for his family and always put them ahead of himself. He was a selfless, loving husband, father, and pawpaw. He never ever hesitated to lend a hand, offer advice, or just listen. Rick was full of kindness, joy and love. He was quick with a smile and hearty laugh, and seemingly had a dad joke or “rickyism” about any given topic. He adored his grandchildren and was quick to hand them a package of gummies and a bear hug every time he saw them.

He believed strongly in education, and that through education his children would have opportunities that he didn’t. You could see his face light up as he bragged about the accomplishments & fulfilled life of his children full of love, laughter, and his grandkids.

He was also a man of faith. He taught Sunday school for years, was a dedicated church deacon, and a music leader. More importantly than the positions he held at two congregations, he lived his faith and values every day. He ensured that his kids knew & loved God. Church was a time of fellowship and family unity.

Rick always told his kids, “if you’re going to do something, do it right.” Even at the end, when he was struggling to talk and breathe, he called his wife and all five of his adult kids to tell them how much he loved them.

Well Dad… we know you’re looking down on us right now, knowing that you did your life the right way.

Rick is survived by his wife Brenda; son and daughters (Christopher Hemingway-Turner, Andrea Hawk, Crystal Simonis, Melody Morales and Ashton Coonce); by his sons-in-law (David, Michael, Joshua, Sebastian, and Justin); by his small, loving army of 11 grandkids (Aiden, Aniah, Anniston, Brenden, Cheyenne, Ensley, Ethan, Gabriel, Hadley, Mackenzie and Mateo); and his sister Patricia "Trishy".

He was preceded by his father Casto Turner, his mother Dorothy, brothers Raymond and Doug, and sister Judy.

Rick will be laid to rest at Memorial Park/Park Lawn Cemetery on Friday, December 11 in a private family ceremony.

I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved family member and my former co-worker Rick. Rick and I shared a lot of laughs (and gossip) throughout our years together at Stamp Fulfillment. He had such a beautiful spirit and was such a kind man. Keeping Brenda and your entire family in prayer.


Dear Brenda and family. We were so shocked to hear of Rick’s Heavenly promotion!! Such wonderful memories of you two!! Praying for peace and comfort for your entire family!! Love you!! Morris and Charlane 🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️

Brenda, Chris, Andrea, Crystal, Melody, and Ashton, we were shocked to hear of Rickys passing. It seemed like it was yesterday I was talking with him in the doorway to the old house. If there is anything that we can do for you Brenda please let us know. I can't think of RIcky without seeing him holding a door for you. Whether it be a car or the house and your cute grin as you walked past . He would never take his eye off of you. Never. You were his Queen, and he treasured every step you took. I can't imagine that he doesn't break thru the realm and kiss you sweetly on the forhead each night as you lay your head to rest. In my family we say to each other "til we meet again in heaven. We will keep your family in our prayers and ask God to carry you thru the next few days, weeks, and months. Kids, all those moments that make up a life. Ricky did it like a boss and made it look so easy. Good to see you following your parents example. Love all of you, your men, and your kids. Be safe.
