Clint Amon “Poppy” Turner
Clint Amon “Poppy” Turner Jr, 86 passed away in Dallas Texas on January 25th 2022 after a courageous 16 year battle with Alzheimer’s .
Born to Clint Amon and Annie Turner in Crafton, TX, he is survived by wife Katheryn Sue, daughter Cecile Aimee and husband Joel Arthur Lewin, son Clint Amon Turner III and wife Claudine Marie, grandchildren Clint Ashton Turner and wife Katheryn Elise, Dylan Carnot Bellinger, Racheal Cecile Bellinger, Nicholas John Bellinger, sister Anita Powell and brother Nolan Francis Turner. Preceded in death by his parents and brothers Bernell Amon, Gilbert Lynn, Clinton Durwood and Billy Gale Turner.
Raised on a peanut farm in Floydada, TX, a proud Army veteran and Texas Tech graduate (where he was student union manger, he’ll have you know!), Poppy was an accounting comptroller for Phillips Petroleum in Bartlesville, OK, Borger, TX and Albuquerque, NM for 40 years. A true jack of all trades he enjoyed gardening, singing in choral society and quartet ensembles, Toastmasters, serving the Lord as soundboard director at FBC, NYT crossword puzzles, fixing anything that was broken, woodworking, grilling out, power walking, the Honda truck and ordering “queso dil-yas” (always pronounced that way).
Never met a stranger and a friend to anybody, he enjoyed retirement spoiling his grandchildren, living on Lake Conroe, vacationing on Emerald Island, NC, walking his Great Danes, volunteer accounting services, but mostly loving his wife of 58 years.
His calm, confident and wickedly witty personality is terribly missed, but we’re so happy he’s been released to heaven and has that Poppy twinkle back in his eyes… free once again to instantly compute any math question and dance a jig when it’s time to eat!
"Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again."
"I was amazed how professional Abel Rodriguez and his staff at Aria Funeral Preston Dallas Texas. Abel guided me through the process and my options of their services that they offered for my mother. Abel is a compassionate, caring, calm, good listener, efficient and did an excellent job! Thank you!"
"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."
"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."
"Wayne and Staff, thank you for taking care of the arrangements for our mom, Exter McGee and our dad, Philip McGee. You have been great to work with during such a difficult time."
"On behalf of my family, I wanted you to know how much we appreciate your handling of my husband's final arrangements. Wayne Baxter assisted & guided us through the entire process with such care & compassion. Don't know what we would have done without him! Sincerely, Colleen Elledge"
"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."
"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
