Jul 25 1994 - Apr 11 2015

Zachary Alan Turner of McKinney, Texas passed away April 11, 2015 at the age of 20.  He was born July 25, 1994 to Donald and Tami (Newsome) Turner in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  Zachary left us doing what he loved to do more than anything in life – helping others.  Along with his family, he was a member of First Baptist Church in McKinney, Texas.

Zachary grew up in McKinney, and attended school at Rueben Johnson Elementary, Bennett Elementary, Dowell Middle School and graduated from McKinney Boyd High School in 2012.  After high school, he began college while also working.
