I’ve just learned of the recent passing of former Two Wheels Only Motorcycle Resort (Suches, GA) Co-Proprietor Greg (GT) Turner.
From GT’s family:
Dear Friends of GT, We are greatly saddened by the loss of GT this past Monday. He was a good kind man and he will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends. On Saturday, Aug 23 at 2pm, a memorial service for GT is being held at Banister Funeral Home, 2068 Hwy 19, North Dahlonega, Georgia. We look forward to meeting any of our brothers friends who will be able to attend. We would appreciate any support to get the word out about GT’s service on Saturday. We’d like to make sure everyone is aware. Something will be posted on the Banister Funeral Home site shortly as well. If you would like to speak at the memorial service, we would welcome your stories and memories.
From TWO’s Facebook page:
Rest in Peace, Greg Turner~TWO
I just got word from Mimi White that our old friend, GT passed earlier today.
My condolences to GT’s family and especially Brit.
Many of you may remember the “rustic” nature of TWO during Frank Cheek’s tenure and certainly there are hundreds of riders forever grateful for Frank’s vision.
However, there are many more riders who will always be appreciative of the charming upgrades instituted by Brit and GT. TWO blossomed, literally, under their stewardship. With their guidance, and the efforts of a small group of energetic employees, TWO became not only a place for riders to visit, but it was a place where you were made to feel welcome. There was always a smiling face, cold water, iced tea and sweets for the weary rider to replenish their sagging energy. And for those lucky enough to visit on Friday and Saturday nights, the promise of a well-crafted evening meal was there for those willing to wait. TWO at that time, was a haven for two-wheeled brothers and sisters and the mood there was always one of easy, good times. Not before Brit and GT owned the business, nor since they walked away from TWO has that resort been such a polished expression of genuine hospitality.
Let us all take a moment to remember GT Turner as a man that, for ever how briefly, lived a dream and in turn gave us one to be cherished forever.
~peace to GT and all those that mourn his passing
