His mother was unable to make the trip from Georgia to California for the funeral and the Marine Corps handled all of the funeral arrangements – including shipping Staff Sergeant ashes back home.

NewsOn6.com – Tulsa, OK – News, Weather, Video and Sports – KOTV.com | And that didn’t sit well with Patriot Guard riders, so they stepped up by creating a caravan and personally escorting SSgt Turner’s remains all the way across the country.

“I got on the road at 6 o’clock [Friday] night out of Huntsville, Alabama and I rode over to Oklahoma,” Asha Lamy said. “I need the family to know that you’re not alone and we care.”

Each time the remains were turned over to another group of riders, a ceremony was held to pay their respects for the fallen warrior. Check out the video report here:Atlanta News, Weather, Traffic, and Sports | FOX 5
According to the Patriot Guard website:

“Turner was a great leader who inspired his fellow Marines, both in the Corps and in daily life. You were his friend if you knew him for five minutes or five years. He would give you the shirt off his back.”
