Turner was born in Covington and retired from the Covington Police Department after 45 years of service.

At the time, he was the city's longest tenured employee. Turner had also served on the Newton County School Board since 1996.

"We are stunned, devastated, and heartbroken," said Samantha Fuhrey, superintendent of the Newton County School System. "Mr. Turner was a life-long supporter of our community and its school system. He always wanted and fought for what was best for our students and employees and we looked forward to him continuing to serve on our school board into the foreseeable future. But more importantly, on a personal note, Mr. Turner was my friend and mentor—someone who helped guide me as I began the journey as superintendent of this school system. I will never forget his advice, his kind words of encouragement, and most of all his friendship. There will never be another Almond Turner. He was truly one of a kind."

Turner leaves behind a wife, three children and several grandchildren.
