Obituary

Mike “Hammer” Karpowich passed away at West Marion Hospital after a courageous battle. He fought hard to come home to his beloved wife and soulmate Gail, “hon” as he always called her. They shared 48 years of love and joy. He was born in New Jersey and moved to Dunnellon, Florida with his wife and son in 1982. They enjoyed together their love of the beautiful Rainbow River.

Mike was a member of Dunnellon Moose Lodge #2308 since 1989. He loved life, telling jokes, boating, cooking, and riding his Harley Davidson motorcycles with his wife and sharing good times with his beloved son Bill, family, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father John Karpovich Sr. and Mother Dorothy. He is survived by his wife Gail, his loving son Wilbur “Bill” Turnbach and his wife Paula, brother John Karpovich and wife Kathi, beloved mother-in-law Marge Hegedus, brother-in-law James “Gator” Hegedus and wife Marge, best friends Nick & Deb, nieces, nephews, cousins and too many friends to count.

Mike will be forever missed and remain in the hearts of those he so loved and loved him.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
