George "Bub" "Georgie" Winton Turcott Jr.
Clyde – George Winton “Georgie” “Bub” Turcott, Jr., passed away unexpectedly Sunday, April 22, 2018 at Mission Hospital in Asheville at the age of 51.
A native of Watertown, New York, he was born November 21, 1966 to the late George Winton Turcott, Sr. and Edith Countryman Turcott. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by an infant son, Nathaniel Logan Turcott; an infant daughter, Ellie Joy Turcott; an adopted son, Robert Connard; a brother, Lyle Everett “Huckie” Turcott, Jr.; and an uncle, Kenneth Turcott.
“Bub”, as he was affectionately known, loved to go fishing at Lake Junaluska and at Sunburst. He was a skilled tattoo artist with a steady hand which undoubtedly helped him with his model car hobby. Not only did he build model cars, he also had a passion for building, working on, and racing their full-size versions. Bub was kind, compassionate, funny, pleasant to be around, and appreciative of others. His sense of humor could lighten the mood of any room. He would always be there for his family and friends without passing any judgment. “Georgie” maintained a love for nature throughout his entire life, and although his eyesight had eventually failed him, he would often be found sitting outside with a beam of sunlight on his face, listening to the birds sing.
Survivors include his partner and best friend of 10 years, Mary E. Brown of Clyde; his former wife and constant friend, Carla Matthews of Clyde; adopted sons, James and Jessie Knight; three step-sons, Nathaniel Tingle of Lake Lure, Shawn Tingle of Louisville, KY, and Jonathan Matthew Tingle of Clyde; a special aunt, Angela Gilbo of Watertown, NY; an uncle, Pete Countryman and his wife, Pauline, of Watertown, NY; a special cousin, Tony Turcott and his wife, Linda, of Cape Vincent, NY, and a host of cousins from New York.
Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service is honored to be caring for the Turcott & Brown families.
