Kevin “Bubba” Joseph Turner, age 55 of Monroe, passed away peacefully with family by his side on Tuesday, March 19, 2024, at the Henry Ford Hospital of Detroit.

Kevin was a big time DJ in Monroe County. He went under the name KT Productions and was affectionately called Bubba. Kevin loved to have a good time with great people. He enjoyed singing karaoke and had a beautiful voice. 

In his free time, he enjoyed going fishing, hunting, and watching drag races.  Kevin liked to cook just about anything and loved to display his creations on Facebook. He always had his cell phone or his essential “lifeline” with him. Kevin had made many friends in his lifetime, and always kept in touch over FaceBook.  He even had a small spot just for him at Ted’s Campground, where his friends always looked out for him, whenever he was visiting. 

Kevin will be remembered for his fun personality, making everyone around him always have a good time. Kevin loved to make others laugh. Nothing stopped Kevin from overcoming challenges during his life, he persevered through it all. Kevin most importantly, enjoyed spending quality time with his family and friends, especially his older brother, Ronnie, who he had a special connection with. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
