John d. Turck, age 89, of rural Canton, Minn., died Tuesday, April 23, 2013, at Harmony Community Healthcare, Harmony, Minn.
John Daniel Turck was born June 15, 1923, in Preston, Minn. to Earl and Martha (Rasmussen) Turck. He was baptized and confirmed at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Preston. He was a 1941 graduate of Preston High School. He then attended Austin Junior College, Austin, Minn. for two years. He helped his dad with the family trucking business until he was called to serve in the US Army from 1944 - 1946 stateside.
Turke trained as a medic, for the military police and as a driver for the motor pool. He always said he probably had the longest record for taking basic training. When he returned from the army he helped his dad with the trucking business until taking over when his dad retired. He hauled general commodities, household goods and livestock. The last few years he was trucking hogs to Geo. A. Hormel. He trucked almost 50 years retiring on November 30, 1992. He continued hauling apples, following his retirement, for Jacobson’s Pine Tree Orchard in the fall.
He married Anita Buss of Spring Valley on August 21, 1966. To this union were born three sons, David, Michael and James. He loved them and was very proud of them. The couple lived in Preston until about 12 years ago when they moved to their farm in rural Canton. John and Anita spent part of 19 winters in Arizona.
He was a member of the Preston American Legion for 66 years and was also a member of the Preston Masonic Lodge. He served on the building committee for Christ Lutheran Church , Preston and was church treasurer for six years. He enjoyed reading, especially books about the civil war, history and railroads.
He is survived by his wife Anita; sons, David (Melanie), Michael (Leah) and James (Jill); the apple of his eye, granddaughter, Deirdre; sisters-in-law, LaDonna (Dick) Severson and Marilyn (Lyn) July; and brother-in-law, Fred (Robbie Monroe) Buss. He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
The funeral was Friday, April 26, 2013, at Christ Lutheran Church with Rev. Dave Jore officiating. Burial was in the Henrytown Lutheran Cemetery, Henrytown, Minn. (rural of Canton).
