Cullen, LA (KMSS) — Funeral services have been set for Cullen Mayor Dexter Turner, who passed away Friday.
Turner's funeral is scheduled for Saturday, March 30 at 11 a.m. at the First Baptist Church in Cullen. There will be a visitation Friday, the 29th at Memorial Funeral Home, also in Cullen.
Mayor Pro Tem Gary Sullivan believes Turner may have died from a heart attack, as he suffered from heart problems.
Turner came into office as Mayor Pro Tem in March of 2012, and then was just elected into the position in 2013.
Despite having been in office a short time, Turner touched many lives, including that of Sullivan, who cried when he heard the news of Turner's passing.
