James W. Word III and his wife Lisa started this fund in honor of the parents of close friend William L. “Bill” Turner. Both families have a significant history of active community participation. Bill’s father was critically ill, and the Words felt it would be appropriate to recognize the couple. Mr. Turner died shortly thereafter and the fund received numerous additional memorial gifts from friends and family. William Nave Turner and Mary Ann were married for nearly 65 years. He had a long successful career in the mining industry. Their children and grandchildren have each been involved with BAF in some capacity.
