THOMASTON………..Stephen Turnbull was born November 9, 1984 and grew up in Camden. He graduated from Camden Hills Regional High School in 2003.
After high school Steve lived in Rockland and worked with his dad in his lawn-care business. At 26, he met Karen Gilbert. They fell in love and two years later they married. They lived in Thomaston for a few years, and Steve worked for his cousin Mike at the Post Card Dude.
Karen and Stephen had a baby boy, Jackson Arnold, in 2015.
A couple of years later they decided it was time to live near Karen’s family up North.
Steve had a unique, quirky, off-beat sense of humor that delighted his friends and family. He especially enjoyed making his little boy Jackson laugh. He was an artist at heart and loved to draw and create. He had a life-time passion for music and listened to it endlessly, always searching out new groups and new kinds of music. He wrote songs and played guitar with a group of his friends when he was younger. He had a love for the outdoors and enjoyed hiking, walking, and being by the ocean.
Family was Steve’s priority in life, and he had close relationships with his sister, aunts, cousins, and parents. The love of his life was his son Jackson.
