Don Turbeville was a charismatic and strong-willed man, known for his charm, humor, and unwavering devotion to his family. He always put his loved ones first, taking immense pride in each of his children and grandchildren.

Don's adoration for his parents, Rita and Jimmy, knew no bounds. He held them in the highest regard, cherishing the memories of his father and the unwavering love provided throughout his life by his mother Rita.

Don's magnetic personality attracted many lifelong friends from the Westbank to Puerto Rico and far beyond. He was cherished by those fortunate enough to call him a friend. He built friendships based on trust, loyalty, and shared experiences, and he valued each and every one of them.
