Lashon Jamel Turner, departed this life suddenly on May 21, 2021 at Albany Medical Center, Albany, New York.
Lashon, was born on February 3, 1982, to the late LeColia Turner and Billy Price in Albany, New York. Shon was educated in the Albany City School District. Shon held various positions throughout the Capital District area; including Maintenance jobs, Construction and even dabbled a bit in Auto Mechanics.
Shon was a loving and devoted dad to all of his children. He became a single parent when the 1st love of his life, the mother of 3 of his children, received her Wings to Heaven. He knew it wouldn’t be easy, but he embraced the role as a Real Father, Real Man with love and great pride and joy in raising his children along with the Beautiful Blessing that God sent him. It definitely wasn’t an easy task or walk in the park but together they handled all the roadblocks, bumps in the road and obstacles that came with parenting.
Shon was affectionally known as Shock or Shocka (“Shocka LaFlare”) to his close family and friends. He was definitely the most Loving and famous Uncle Shock to his nieces and nephews. Later in life Shock decided that he no longer wanted to work for anyone else, telling him what time to come to work and what he could and couldn’t do on the job. He had a vision of someday owning his own business; so along with his business partner he made that happen. Shon was co-owner of Over Easy located in Troy, NY. Shock was a very giving and compassionate person, with a great big heart and smile to go along with it. Outside of his immediate family, he loved helping other people in whatever way he could, especially the younger generation. He didn’t mind sharing his knowledge and some of his life experiences if it would help someone go down a different path.
Shock was a family man; he absolutely loved his family. He wasn’t a perfect man but he tried so very hard to be that perfect Dad! He did that! I mean he did that with great love!
Shock had a love for cars and one of the many conversations he enjoyed having with his sons. He was also into fitness and eating healthy (maybe not every meal), but he continuously worked at it. He wanted to make sure his children, family and friends knew how important it was to get a good workout in and follow it up with healthy meals. Shock also enjoyed traveling and that shouldn’t come as a surprise to those that really knew him, because he started traveling at a very young age and I don’t mean with parents or any other adults; that was Shock just doing what he wanted do to..
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his maternal great aunts, Iona Wall and Ecolia Morman, A special friend, the late Indria Uptegrow, his sister Regina Young Dorsey, brother Courtney J. Young. LaShon leaves to cherish his memory his fiancé’ Xzavier Ortiz, his five children, La’quan Fallen, Na’jaleik Uptegrow-Turner, Na’shon Uptegrow-Turner, Navia Uptegrow-Turner, and Jacob Turner; his two grandchildren Peyton Uptegrow-Turner, and Hajh Heru Hxavi X. He was the loving brother of Averie Young, of North Carolina, Wyneshia Turner, Willie Young Jr, Kimberly Young, Tyrone (Leesa) Young, of Albany, NY; Lolita Keyes of Rensselaer, NY; Patricia Young of Maryland; Renaee Price, Gwen Price, Brejetter Turner-Price, Ralph Townsend of Albany, NY. In addition, on his
maternal side he leaves to cherish his aunts and uncles Lula Mae Hailey, Verdell Allen, Jackerleen Turner, Mary Turner, great aunt Josephine Ingram, of North Carolina,
uncle Donnie Turner Jr., of New Jersey. His late grand parents, Donnie Turner and Mary L. McDougald-Turner. La’shon leaves to cherish a host of nieces and nephews and relatives…etc and God daughter Kylee Elliot.
