HERE’S THE FULL BIO BLURB: “A retired restaurateur and doting father and grandfather, Gerry [GAIR-ee] Turner lives in his dream house on a beautiful lake in Indiana. He’s often busy hosting barbecues, playing pickleball, cheering on his favorite Chicago sports teams, four-wheeling, and spending time with friends and family at restaurants and local haunts.  Always a romantic, Turner married his high school sweetheart, Toni, in 1974. Together, they lived a full and happy life with their two daughters, Angie and Jenny, and later two granddaughters, Charlee and Payton. Sadly, after their 43 years together, Toni suddenly fell ill and passed away in 2017.  Six years after Toni’s passing and with the support of his family, Turner is ready to put himself out there and find a love that will stand the test of time in his golden years.”  Gerry, whose daughters encouraged him to sign up for the show, told GMA that he’s lived his life by the motto “don’t give up — there’s always possibilities.” He also believes that his late wife, Toni, would approve of his decision to be the first-ever Golden Bachelor. “We always told each other, when one of us goes, we want the other one to be happy. She’s up there rooting [for me].”
