  1. I was a curling colleague of Turk mostly at North Hill Curling Club who enjoyed both curling against and with Turk as he was a great sport and a very competitive curler. I had the good fortune of curling with him in a bonspiel at the Garrison Curling Club a few years back when the team was invited back to his place where I met Leslie.
    Great guy who will certainly be sorely missed.
