Sheriff Tim Donnellon and the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department recently honored William “Bill” Turney, a well-decorated World War II Veteran with an honorary Deputy Sheriff certificate. Mr. Turney wanted to be a law enforcement officer after the war was over but was declined admission to the police force in 1945 due to a height restriction for officers. Bill would instead go on to serve the Blue Water Area as a mailman for over 30 years.
We want to thank Sheriff Donnellon and the St. Clair County Sheriff’s department for honoring this local hero.
