Todd Nelson Turner was born June 21, 1963 to Ray and Sandy Turner in Beaver, Oklahoma. His Dad wanted his firstborn son’s initials to be “TNT”.

Todd went to Hilltop kindergarten where he walked three blocks to school every day, accompanied by his younger brother Tim who was supposed to only walk one block. On one occasion, the school called to inform Mrs. Turner that Tim had come to school with Todd and said he wanted to enroll in school. He attended first and second grades in Borger. The family moved to Panhandle, Tx. Where Ray was teaching, farming, running cattle and raising chickens. Gathering eggs was not Todd’s favorite chore. A lot of memories and funny stories were made to be told. Todd attended third through fifth grades there. He played baseball during the summer. This was his favorite sport throughout his life.

He took computer courses at the Junior College there. He later moved to Turpin and began working in the office of National Beef in Liberal before deciding to move near Kansas City, KS to work as a computer specialist. After a year he returned home and worked at various office jobs prior to his Dads’s untimely death in May, 1996.
