Turner Samuel McLean
Turner Samuel McLean, age 12, of Howard, passed away January 6, 2019 in Omaha, Neb., after a year-long fight with many complications resulting from a brain tumor. Turner was born October 9, 2006 in Lincoln, Neb. to Scott and April McLean. He lived in Howard and was in the 6th grade at West Elk School. He loved and looked up to many people in his life, but his number one passion was his family. Whether it was being outside gardening with his mom and helping her can vegetables, or watching his siblings play football, basketball, and track, he just wanted to spend time and be with them. He also had an old soul. He would be the first one up in the morning, make himself some coffee and be enjoying some old black and white western movie when the rest of the family woke up.
