It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Commander Turner Houston Totten.
Commander Totten had a passion for Veterans and his community. As Commander of American Legion Post 210, he was proactive in leading the Post upward. His dedication to service also prompted his membership into the Montford Marines. He served his post and community faithfully until the end.
In addition to his dedication to Yanceyville Post 210, Turner had previously served as District 12 Commander and in many other offices within the Department of North Carolina. He was an strong advocate of programs and services to active duty and former military service members.
Turner served in the United States Navy for 25 years, retiring as a Senior Chief Petty Officer. Turner’s entire life was the life of a servant leader. During his 25 years of military service, Turner’s primary duties included being a Career Information Advisor and a Command Career Information Retention Counselor/Coordination.
Our condolences go out to his wife, Former Auxilary President, Naomi Totten; his sons Tadashi Totten, Tetsuo Totten, and Semaj McIver (Rowena). We also send our condolences to active auxiliary members Olivia Turner Totton, his beloved mother, and three sisters Yvonne Totten, Cynthia Clark and Genola Allen (Mike).
Service will be Wednesday, October 27th, at 1:00 pm at the Caswell County Civic Center. Auxiliary members are asked to be flower bearers and Post members to serve as Pallbearers.
