June 8: Mark Turner #MakingItPossible

Meet Mark Turner. Describing himself as a “nothing, know it all”, Mark’s true passion lies in aircraft, from anything that has to do with airplanes to helicopters. His lust for aircraft began when he joined the Air Force in 1970, working with aircraft plumbing, sheet metal mechanics, machine shop, refinishing, painting and welding. After retiring in 1991 from the Air force, Mark’s passion for aircraft continued with building, creating and designing model flight airplanes and always finding new and innovative ways to make things work. He especially enjoys working on his model aircraft projects with his grandson. Since his diagnosis with PLS in 2007, Mark is thankful for the EZ chair and power wheel chair that was provided to him by the ALS Society of Alberta. This equipment is #MakingItPossible for him to continue spending time with his family and enjoy doing what he loves the most; working with model airplanes.
