RICK TURNER

by January 8, 2018 0

Rick Turner, founder of The Meaningful Movies Project, passed away on December 16, 2016 from an acute flare-up of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a disease he was diagnosed with 6 years earlier.  Rick had also been diagnosed in 2016 with acute myeloid leukemia, and had undergone chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant.

Rick was passionate about and tirelessly committed to the vision for Meaningful Movies: educating people about social justice issues, while at the same time building bonds between people.  And to have fun while doing it!  Rick ignited an amazing spark and grew it into a fire that is now nurturing communities far and wide. We will miss him greatly – his amazing smile, his humor, loving kindness, enthusiasm, creativity, and the hope and generosity he always shared with everyone.
