Former BMH editor and general manager Charles Turner, 78, was found dead in his Winona Lake, Indiana, home Saturday afternoon, apparently from a heart attack.
Turner, who was pastor of the Grace Brethren Church of Rittman, Ohio, from 1957-1971, took over the Brethren Missionary Herald Company in Winona Lake in 1971. Turner steered BMH through some of its strongest years of growth and influence, retiring in 1992. His wife, June, died a little over a year ago. The Turners have one son, Jeff, of Goshen, Indiana.
Viewing will be at the Titus Funeral Home, 2000 E. Sheridan Street in Warsaw, Indiana, on Tuesday from 2-4 p.m. and from 6-8 p.m. Memorial service will be at the Winona Lake Grace Brethren Church Wednesday at 1 p.m.
