Brian Paul Turnbull

February 23, 1978

to

January 26, 2016

 

Brian was born to Terry Turnbull on February 23, 1978. He lived in Queen Creek, AZ as a child, then moved to Gilbert, AZ. Brian attended grade school at Burk Elementary in Gilbert, then attended Gilbert High School in Gilbert. Brian made many friends growing up and continued to keep in touch with them.

Brian chose to be in the food industry and has worked at several popular restaurants in the Mesa area. He loved to be around people and loved his job.

Brian had the honor of becoming a father to three beautiful children: Asia, Mason and London. His children were his life and he was their life. Brian would light up when he was with them, or talking about them. Brian enjoyed watching movies with his children; he would cover the living room floor with lots of comforters and pillows and make popcorn. He made his children feel good and they were always laughing together.

Brian had a love for music, movies and Dragon Ball Z. He loved cars, especially Hondas, and loved to roller blade. Brian loved to collect knives, hats and tools.

Six years ago Brian got brain cancer. He always kept a positive outlook and his motto was” Keep on Keepin’ on”. Brian fought his battle with much courage, and his strength came from those he loved the most: his children, his mom, and all of his family. He loved to see people happy; even though Brian was in pain, he would make sure to tell a joke or two. His wit and banter will long live on in our hearts.

Brian is survived by his three children, Asia, Mason and London; his mother, Terry Turnbull Jericho; his father, Robert Jericho; his sister, Mandy Jericho; as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Brian, we love you to the moon and back.

    As I recall many of our texts and conversations over the last year, Brian only showed very positive responses to what he was going through. I never, ever heard him complain. Yet, we all knew he was going through a very difficult time, physically and emotionally. He maintained a very positive attitude and had such hope that he would fight and win this battle. He never gave up and was very brave.

    Brian lit up when speaking of his children. I never knew a more dedicated father.

    Brian was very special and I will miss him very much. But will live through his memories, until I see him again one day. 🙂

    Love you, Brian!
    Aunt Darlene

    My Brian, my first born you will always be in my heart and soul. I miss you so much and am so thankful we had a chance to get close over the last several years. You are my “HERO”! You conquered this battle with much courage, strength, faith and hope. During your fight you kept up a positive attitude and lifted everyone’s spirits in which you came in contact with. Brian, you have left a legacy of three beautiful children who will carry on in you. They were very blessed to have you as their father and you were very blessed to have them as your children. Your memories will live on in all of us and you will always be loved by many people. I Love You to the Moon and Back!!!! Stars and Sun and all the planets forever and ever <3

  21. Terry Jericho says:

    Hi Brian,
    It has been eight months since you went to Heaven. I miss you every single day. You are constantly on my mind and will always be in my heart “For Centuries”.The kids are doing well. I took Asia and Mason with me to CA for a few days. It was a nice change for both of them. Also, Mason got to go with a friend to Hawaii for a week. London is getting so big and so smart. She wanted to go visit the house we lived in after you were born, so I took her yesterday.Asia is getting ready to go to her first Homecoming Dance in a few weeks, so we went shopping together to look for a dress. Oh, I took Asia to see her favorite band a few weeks ago, but you already knew that because you were right there with us. We all miss you so much. You will be in our hearts forever. Please watch over us my guardian Angel. Until we meet again. Love you to the moon and back….stars and sun! Love, Mom

  22. Terry Jericho says:

    Hi Brian, it’s been a few months since I last posted. Just wanted to tell you we are doing fine. The kids are getting so big and are great kids. You would be proud. Asia is as beautiful as always, Mason is almost as tall as me and so smart and London has grown several inches. They all are doing well in school. I took the kids out for your birthday and we sent balloons off to you. You would have been 39 years old. I am doing well still working…. I miss you so much and want you to know you will forever be in my heart. You are always on my mind and I love you to the moon and back…stars and sun.
    Love you forever Bri love Mom

  23. Terry says:

    Hi Bri,
    I miss you so much. The kids and I sent balloons to you today which marks three years when you left us. We even went for your favorite Mexican food. We talk about you all the time and you will forever be in our hearts. I love you to the moon and back. I love you forever and always. Mom

  24. Terry Jericho says:

    Hi Brian,
    It’s been a while since I have written on here. I talk to you everyday and I miss you so much. Asia is now 18, Mason is 16 and both have jobs now. London is 10 and in the 5th grade. She is so smart and is in the Gifted and Talented Program. I have Guardianship of the kids and am now raising them. But, I know you already knew that. For that reason I believe is why you had to go so soon. Your memory will forever stay alive in our hearts and soul. You are our beautiful Angel watching over all of us. I love you to the moon and back…. Always and Forever. Until we meet again my son. All My Love, Mom ❤️?

  25. Darlene says:

    Hi Terry, I came across this tonight in search of Bob’s name. I still ache for your loss of Brian. But so happy you continue to send messages to him. We know he’s in heaven knowing every word your saying. And if he could write back, he would tell you how thankful he was to have a Mom like you that has been so dedicated to him, and for raising his children, and for always thinking of him. He would definitely tell you that he loved you too, to the moon and back, and forever until you meet again. You have endured now three deaths of those so close: Brian, Wilma, our sister, and now your beloved Bob. I pray that your pain is short lived, and rather that your heart is filled with precious memories. I love you, my dear sister. You are very special.
