He became fully blind when he was 73 years old. On the occasion of his 111th birthday, he stated his ambition of reaching his 112th birthday.

Turner died in Tottenham, London, on 21 March 1968, at the age of 111 years, 280 days. He was the oldest verified living person, however he might have been the second oldest living person in the world at the time of his death, if the currently unverified case Narcissa Rickman is true. He was also the oldest living man in the world.
