Sergeant Turner had served with the Louisiana Department of Corrections for 24 years. He is survived by his wife and three sons. Two of his sons also work for the agency.

Beginning in early 2020, due to the requirements of their job, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the United States contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic. Hundreds of law enforcement officers died from medical complications as a result of contracting the virus while remaining on duty and interacting with the community.
