Terry Lee “Taz” Turner, 66 of Danville, Indiana, passed away, August 5, 2019 in Danville Regional Rehabilitation, after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Terry was born, December 27, 1952 in Beech Grove, IN to Dewie and Leona (Jones) Turner. He was a graduate of Ben Davis High School, and worked his entire career and retired from Allison Transmission in Indianapolis.
