March 10, 1932 - November 3, 2021
Alfred A. Turner, Jr., of Bonita Springs, FL passed away on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 at 89 years of age. Born in Chicago, IL on March 10, 1932, Alfred “Big Al” lived a full life spending many years in the automotive and racing world with Ford and Chrysler. An avid golfer and fisherman in his younger years, he had a special place in his heart for mechanics and car racing. As a young man, he ran his own drag racing car, developed the first flip top funny car, and was the mastermind behind the Ford Falcon GTHO road racing car in Australia. Al was inducted into the Michigan Motor Sport Hall of Fame on November 3, 2019, one of the many amazing accomplishments he achieved. He is survived by his loving wife, Susan Turner, daughters and sons: Lori (Peter) Dietze, son-in-law John Quinn, Mary Jo Turner, Christine (Kevin) Grinenko, Douglas (April) Bredy, Roslyn (Scott) Jacobson, and Amber (Todd) Johnson. He also deeply loved his grandchildren: Lauren (Simon), Christina, Ian, Daniel, Ashley, Alexandra, Zachary, Lincoln, Gabrielle, Jack, Max, Luke, Cole, Matthew and Claire and one great grandchild (Penny May). Al joins his loving mother (Emmy), father (Alfred), sisters (Alice, Olive and Lorraine) and beloved daughter (Kim) in eternal life. The family will have a memorial service at a date and time to be named later. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to GTHO Lot 6 in Al’s memory (www.fordgtholot6.com).
