Don Turner June 2019


Kids often look up to their father as one of their greatest heroes. There are the long drives to sports tournaments, the late- night movies, and the sweets when Mom isn’t looking. We probably all

Just as he’d intended, Brad absorbed most of the blow. While Oscar sustained serious wounds, his father’s injuries were more severe. Brad was left fighting for his life in the ICU, with severe fractures to his skull and vertebrae. Thankfully, Brad is expected to make a full recovery and has made serious strides since the accident. He and his son will live to play another day. Greg Alexander: Couldn’t Bear to See His Son Hurt While camping in Great Smoky Mountains National Park in June 2015, Greg Alexander awoke to the sound of a nightmare. The screams of his son intermingled with the roars of an unknown assailant, beckoning Greg to his son’s tent. There, he found his son Gabriel being attacked by a bear. The bear had his son by the head and was dragging him away. Greg jumped on the bear’s back, desperately trying to take attention away from Gabriel. Amazingly, it worked, and in the end, the bear ran away. Gabriel was left with serious cuts to his head, but thanks to his dad’s heroism, the two were able to walk away from that campsite and back to their lives together. The important thing to remember is that you don’t have to take a leap of faith or fight a bear to be a hero in your family’s eyes. Just be yourself, show some support, and do the best you can. Happy Father’s Day, everybody.

There’s nothing quite like the bond between National Football League (NFL) alumni, and the decades they played or the accolades they achieved don’t diminish that special bond. This spring, Don Turner was able to connect with well-known NFL alumni and Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers. The duo met for lunch while supporting their friend and restaurant owner at the grand opening of My Stir Fry in Alpharetta, Georgia, in late April. George and Don had met before, and they even played a few rounds of golf together in the past. However, this was the first chance they had to sit down and really get to know each other. As clients may know, Don played with the New York Jets and the Atlanta Falcons. He brought the discipline, teamwork, and dedication the NFL taught him to the legal arena, but football is still a large part of Don’s life. He enjoyed spending time with a fellow professional player, and he is always impressed with the legacy and discipline players like George Rogers bring to the game. Brad Lewis: Over the Ledge Life can change in a split second, and how you choose to react in a moment of peril can define your legacy forever. Few people know this as well as Brad Lewis. When Brad and his young son, Oscar, were deeply entrenched in an intense Nerf battle, he surely didn’t think the situation would turn as dangerous as it did. When a few darts missed his father and landed on the balcony, Oscar ran after them but soon found himself teetering on the balcony’s ledge, 12 feet above the ground. Thinking fast, Brad grabbed his son just before he fell over, both taking the plunge while Brad protected his son with his own body. MEETING WITH HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER GEORGE ROGERS DON TURNER IN THE COMMUNITY have some reason to look up to our dad as one of our biggest influences. It’s Father’s Day this month, a special time of year when we take a moment to think about the sacrifices the father figures in our lives have made for us. Most dads are pretty great, but some go above and beyond the fatherly call of duty. Let’s take a look at some heroic dads who risked everything to keep their families safe.
