Bruce E. Turner

1932 - 2023


Bruce E. Turner Sr., 90 years of New Hyde Park passed away peacefully on February 2, 2023.

He is survived by his loving wife, Barbara, daughter, Tracy (Glenn), 4 grandchildren, Melissa, Kevin, Samantha & Ashley and 7 great grandchildren. Predeceased by his son, Bruce Jr. (Liz). Adored by his many nieces and nephews, especially Magda (Pawel) & Hanna.

Bruce grew up in New Hyde Park where he started working at Mockawetch Florist as a young teenager and later devoted his life to the florist he would call his own. Bruce settled in Syosset where he raised his family and later returned to New Hyde Park where he has resided with Barbara for the last 30 years.

Bruce took pride in tending to his greenhouses and creating beautiful floral masterpieces for every occasion. He also enjoyed gardening in his yard where he grew enough vegetables to supply the entire neighborhood.

Bruce loved baseball and his favorite team was the METS, he enjoyed traveling —especially to Hawaii— and lived life to the fullest. He was loved by everyone who knew him and he will be deeply missed, but will live on in our hearts forever.
