Scott Turner was born in Butte, Mont., and served in WWI as a medic. A motor blast injured his eyes and caused blurred vision. As a result, he suffered from headaches for the rest of his life. Even so, he designed the overflow tunnels for Alder Dam and constructed houses at Fort Lewis. Scott and Annie (Mensik) Turner had three children: Robert, Josephine, Virginia, and Eloise.
He petitioned a road for the school bus, and the road was named after him.
Turner bought property in the same area as the Mensik family and the road that bears his name runs through most of it.
He was a gentle, loving man. Mother Annie worked hard her whole life.
