A. Turturro, 27, of 811 Cooper St., passed away Tuesday,
Feb. 21, unexpectedly in the emergency room at Samaritan
Born April 22, 1984, the son of Sandra L. Wearne, he
graduated in 2002 from Watertown High School.
Angelo worked for several years in the electronics
department at Walmart in Calcium and later for Stream.
Ang was born with spina bifida and survived many trials and
tribulations in his life. He underwent several life
threatening surgeries and spent almost a year in a Montreal
hospital during his teens. He never let his disability take
away his desire to have as normal a life as possible and
took great pride in his accomplishments and independence.
Ang proved the doctors wrong time and time again. Through
the loving care of his family Angelo beats the odds and had
a full life. He had a special bond with his mother – they
were not just mother and son, but best friends.
He was a patient, generous uncle to his nieces and nephews: Cody T. Mackenna, Isaac, JayQuon, KaiAnna, Logan, Cody S.,
Cameron, Brandon, Nicholas, Dylan, Shane, Zachary and Ryan. He loved playfully teasing
and tussling with them.
Surviving are his mothers Sandra “Sam” Wearne and
Patricia “Pam” Maxwell, Watertown; two brothers,
Christopher (Michelle), Harrisville, and Adam (Shirley),
Dexter. He was a devoted son, brother, and uncle.
Angelo is also survived by four aunts, Nancy (Joseph)
Navarra, Roxanne Turturro, Atlanta, Tammy Wearne, Liverpool,
Patricia Turturro, Syracuse, and Pamela Turturro, Gouverneur,
uncles James “Frank” Wearne Watertown, Timothy Wearne
Jersey City, N.J.; and his cousins Sarah, Matt, Kirk,
Melissa, Michael, Leslie, Katherine, Kendra, Shawn and
His grandparents Richard Wearne, Mary Louise Wearne and
Ileen Wearne, all predeceased him. An uncle Stephen Wearne
passed away Aug. 26 2011.
Ang was a Buffalo Bills fan, but loved his New York Yankee
team above all else. In honor of Ang, everyone is asked to
attend the calling hours and funeral in Yankees attire He
was a whiz on the computer. Ang loved hunting and fishing
with his brothers Chris and Adam, and his mom. He liked
camping and especially sitting around the firepit in the
summer enjoying the company of family and friends.
He had a great sense of humor and a positive outlook on life
in spite of all his own troubles. Perseverance is a word to
describe Ang. He was always willing to lend a hand and had a
strong work ethic.
