I met Mark as he helped me with pressing in some bearings for my s40. It was a bit awkward, but he was ever resourceful and he cracked it. We swapped horror stories of our various automotive disaster areas we had battled to keep running over the years. I wish I knew a tenth of what he knew in terms of engineering skills, but as with others, I learned from him and his 'feel' for machines and materials lives on whenever we grab a meter and some spanners and get the old bucket running again.

In loving memory of Mark Anthony Turner, who sadly passed away on 4th December 2016. Mark leaves behind a loving family, his wife Kim and three children Mark, Amy, James and his older brother Albert. Mark will be missed by many, family, friends and work colleagues alike.
Mark was a loving family man; we have many good memories of great holidays in Dorset and Cornwall with Dave and Jo and Cab and Dee. Earlier on in life Mark enjoyed wind surfing and canoeing, those pass times in later life were replaced with weekend spend in the family caravan as well as fresh water and sea fishing. Fishing was a hobby that both him and his brother shared.
Mark also enjoyed running, taking part in the London Marathon in 1995. He also completed many walks with his walking buddies, Rusty, Andy, Kevin and Cab to name a few.
If you were to ask any one of Mark's Friends or family, they would tell you that he was best known for his sense of humour and comedy knowledge.
Throughout his life Mark enjoyed maintaining cars especially Mini's and later enjoyed owning and driving his Ford Mondeo and Landrover Defender '90.
Mark's most notable hobby was to restore old British motor bikes with Cab, Mark was particularly fond of Triumph and Norton. A highlight of this period of his life was the Triumph TSS that him and Cab re-build, adding custom designed components that Mark had tinkered with to solve known issues with that model of bike. This trait was typically Mark, he liked to be able to use his engineering background to solve problems, for himself and his friends and Family
