Obituary for Cullen 'Mike' Turpin

On Wednesday, May 31, 2017. Words cannot sum up a man's life, but Mike could sum up any subject in words. Stubborn, loyal, a proud Democrat, and talkative. Mike has gone on to moderate (or start) debates of Heavenly proportions. At the age of 65, he peacefully joined his parents, Preston and Sue (Bell) Turpin. He leaves behind his wife of over 30 years, Vinessa (Gentile) Turpin; sister, Suzanne (Carey) Tomlinson; his brother, Pat (Sherry) Turpin; as well as his children, Rita (Phil) Porterfield, James (Kayle) Turpin, John Turpin; and his grandson, Jude Porterfield. His legacy is one of community service and political activism, which he hoped would inspire a new wave of an informed and involved electorate. Friends and family will be received Sunday 2-8 p.m. at the Winter Funeral Home, PC, 4730 Friendship Ave. A Mass celebrating his life will be held Monday at 10 a.m. at St. Maria Goretti Parish formerly Immaculate Conception Church located on Edmond St. in Bloomfield.
