r.i.p. – Dr. Turner

In respect to those lost in yesterday’s tragic airplane crash in Lexington, we pause to mourn Dr. Larry W. Turner, an Associate Dean of the UK College of Agriculture. Dr. Turner was author or co-author of over 225 journal articles, papers, etc. In my first really big products liability case, I consulted with him about developing a causation theory. Also, when my wife got her first job at the University, Dr. Turner was her boss. Prior to being named Associate Dean, Dr. Turner had chaired UK’s Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering Department. Larry was a fine man, husband and father, a hard-working engineer and professor, and friend to all who met him.
