Constantine “Uncle Teddy” Turner was called home on May 10, 2022, with his family by his side. Teddy was a dedicated Fulton County bus operator for 20 years, and a lifelong graphic artist and photographer. Constantine was born to Roslyn Anderson in Port Antonio, Jamaica, and raised by his great-aunt Julie and Headmaster Teacher Turner. He was educated at Junior Elementary, Swift Purcell Boys Home, Leslie’s Art Service, and German School of Photography. He lived in Nassau Bahamas, Queens New York, and Las Vegas Nevada prior to settling in Alpharetta GA. Teddy was a successful business owner. His artistic talent led him to the launch of Con Turner’s Lettering and Art in New York in 1983. He continued his artistic calling throughout his life.
Teddy had a very difficult childhood which forged him into the empathetic and loving man we know and love. He lived by the words “never be unkind to children.” As a school bus operator, he would sing “You’re So Pretty” to the children on picture day to make them feel special. He would lead the entire bus in singing “Happy Birthday” when it was their special day. He left a lasting impression on the children and their families. To those who knew him best, he left a legacy as one of the "finest human beings to ever grace this planet". Teddy is survived by his loving and devoted wife Patricia; children Paula, Karol (Jimmy), Carl (Lisa), Robert, Lisa, and Shane (Davis); beloved grandchildren CW, Cameron, Blake, Cole, Tyler, and Noah and an extensive list of family members and loved ones. A memorial service celebrating Teddy’s life will take place on Saturday, June 11th, 2022.
