Michael B. Turner, 48, passed away at his home here Saturday morning, August 11th, following an illness of several months. He was the husband of Donna M. O'Donnell, to whom he was married less than a year ago.
Born in Woburn on January 5, 1953, he was the son of Richard S. and Ruth J. (Seminatore) Turner. He attended Woburn schools and was a graduate of Woburn High School and was Class President of the class of 1971.
A talented musician, Michael traveled throughout the country for a number of years as an entertainer. He was an accomplished guitarist and in more recent years worked out of recording studio at his home. He also taught guitar, maintaining close contact with his students through the years. Many of them continued to be friends throughout his life.
