Br. Bruce Turner from Marquette, Michigan USA recently past away. Great brother, wonderful speaker and friend. 

Before COVID I went to the congregation on Sunday mornings once in a while just for a change of pace. Bruce was always smiling.


As the article brings out Bruce was 82 years old.  

Going to be sorely missed. But he’s on that train 🚂 to the New System and he’s in Jehovah’s memory. The safest place to be. 




MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Bruce Turner, who is known for his legendary impact on public broadcasting in Upper Michigan, has died.

According to Eric Smith, Director of Broadcast & AV Services at NMU, Turner died Saturday following a brief illness. He was 82 years old.

Turner was with WNMU-TV at Northern Michigan University for 56 years, before the station manager retired in June 2019. He helped found the public broadcasting station in the 1960s.

In a 2019 interview with TV6, Turner said, “I’m thankful for Northern [Michigan University] for the greatest experience of my life.”

Before his time at WNMU, Turner also worked for WLUC-TV6 in the 1960s.

According to Smith, “[Turner] also served for years as the chair of the Michigan Association of Public Broadcaster’s programming committee and was well respected by Michigan stations as the ‘go to’ person resolving underwriting policy issues.”

Smith told TV6 that Turner had a passion for public broadcasting, and how it expanded educational and cultural opportunities for the people of Upper Michigan.


No funeral arrangements have been announced at this time.
