David was born in Alice, Texas on February 11, 1956 to Thomas O. Turner, Sr. and Evelyn Markham Davis. Later on in his life he gained a step-father, Robert Davis, who went on to raise him as his own. David spent his adult life working in the oilfield and traveling. In 1999 he met Brandy and his daughter Bridget, who was 4 at the time. Brandy and David married on July 22, 2002, in 2004 Brandy and David had their son, Robert "Boo" Turner. From that day on, David spent his life loving and taking care of his children and family. It takes an extraordinary man to love a child that isn't theirs biologically and he did just that with Bridget. There was never a question as to if she was his daughter. He and Robert "Boo" had an inseparable bond. They enjoyed camping and fishing together, as did Bridget, David loved to tell ghost stories and his treasure hunting tales. He loved looking for hidden treasures and going on adventures.
