    Please accept my condolences. I worked with Bobby at Gill Buick Pontiac many years ago. He was a very kind person. I enjoyed getting to know him.

    We are sorry for your loss. Mr. Turnage was a kind man. I first met him while he had the contract for cleaning service at CP&L in Zebulon. Always friendly and pleasant. May God bless his family.

    Mr. Turnage gave me my first real job and was very supportive even after I left and went to college. We kept in touch all these years. He was a good influence on my life and will miss seeing his smile. He ALWAYS smiled!
