    Tura was always a happy kid that I remember, laughing and joking around most the time, my heart goes out to all his family and close friends…Rest easy up there buddy

  • Barb Hubber says:

    I have known Tura since he moved to Summerland and then had the absolute pleasure of working with him at SSS. Not a day went by that Tura didn’t make me laugh. His smile was infectious, he had a wonderful sense of humour and his presence would brighten the room. Tura would always try to get out of doing his schoolwork and he was a fierce negotiator. I have so many fond memories of him, that instantly bring a smile to my face. He was one of my favourite Summerland boys and he will be missed, by myself and all those that loved him. The picture I have posted was taken at SMS with Wes and Tura in Mrs. Hicks office, party time while she was away. I am truly saddened by the loss of such a bright light in this world. Love you Tura

    Tura’s presence will live in each and every one of us for all and eternity. Tura was one of the closest friends I have ever had, and I truly wish I had made more time to see him in the more recent. If there is anything the family needs, please ask. I’m always here. Sending all my love and prayers to the Desha’s and McCarty family. Tura will always be remembered for having a true heart of gold. With love, Graeme

    Tura…..your were in our life for such a short time ……but that short time in friendship with our guys Adam and Aaron and enlightening our home whether in Red Deer or Penticton. You will be so missed!

  • Brad Biggs says:

    The world is a darker place without that gorgeous smile lighting up every room you walked into buddy. I’m gonna miss those random knocks on my bedroom door whenever you came home or were in town, and opening the door to that sh*t eating grin on your face. The world works in mysterious ways my friend. taken far too soon. You’ll be missed so much, but memories with you will stick forever buddy, along with all the love people have for you. rest easy bro
