In loving memory of Michael (Mike) Turner who sadly passed away on 14th March 2020.

Mike will be missed by all who knew him

Caroline Lazenby donated a sum in Mike's name to International Animal Rescue, being particularly concerned about the plight of captive bears. This UK-based charity rescues many animals from suffering and Mike would approve wholeheartedly of such a worthy cause.

I'll miss ("Watcha Pete") our regular phone chats, Mike. You were magnificent company and a fine cartoonist.

I first met Mike when a group of us shared studio space at the start of our artistic careers and he has remained a true friend ever since. He was always so wise, so upbeat and so kind and I miss him greatly.

Mike was a very dear friend of both of us. We made a big effort to visit and spend time with him every time we visited the UK from New Zealand where we spent many happy times with him when we were all young. Your friendship was highly valued. You will always be remembered and sadly missed dear Mike.

You are a rare gem who was very simple in values and very contented, but open to learn from others and work with them. With us you started the first ever cartoon strip in a global Jain magazine, Jain Spirit, making a 'serious' culture humane and accessible. Through this you touched many hearts all over the world without even meeting them. May your soul rest in eternal peace. Om Shanti. Your art, creativity and humour will live on forever.
