SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY : A well-known local couple was killed after the motorcycle they were riding on was involved in a terrible accident on Saturday at around 5:30 p.m. Marshall Dale Turner, 64, and his wife Lisa Turner, 46, residents of Hesperia were riding a 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle heading eastbound on State Route 138 west of Summit Valley Rd. in the unincorporated area of Hesperia. The couple was riding along with a group of fellow riders composed of mostly friends & family on the 138. That’s when a Chevy Suburban, hauling a trailer carrying 2 jet-skis for unknown reasons struck the couple. The coroner’s press release states, the couple “collided with a westbound vehicle. Paramedics responded and pronounced them dead at the scene. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the collision.”
Reports of the accident were first reported in the fb group Victor Valley News Group (VVNG), within hours an outpouring of comments filled with love, support, positive thoughts and prayer filled the well-known couples photo’s shared by Mario Gonzales in the news group. After reading just a few comments, it’s quite easy to see how well-known & loved the couple was amongst our community.
Mark David, a member of VVNG, shared the following,
“I’ll never forget when Dale saved my life when he was married to Marty, I was her Son’s best friend and passed out from dehydration outside and he dragged me to the house and took care of me. Without Dale I would never have survived to become a Staff Sergeant in the United States Air Force and this man deserves all the prayers he can get.”
Tom and bunny Sheehan also shared the following with the group, “Bunny made Lisa’s pigtails and we remember how excited she was getting them and she would tell us how much fun she had getting all the attention going down the freeway just like in the photo above. When we first saw the article it was the pigtails that we knew exactly who they were. We are still very sad, Dale was always coming by or if he didn’t come into our shop across from G&M he would at least honk as he drove by letting us know he was heading out or in. very very cool people, you would have liked them a lot and we know his club will surely miss them both deeply as both are very respected by everyone.
A fundraiser has been scheduled at the Doghouse, a place where Lisa & Highway were loved very dearly. It will be this Saturday, August 3rd located at 17099 Main St, Hesperia, 92345. The fundraiser for Lisa & Highway will start at 3 p.m.
