We are sorry to inform you that Mr. Mick Turrell passed away yesterday evening after a long and happy life. It is with great regret that we have to deliver this information to you at this time. We are thinking about and praying for him along with his wife Karen, their children, and all of his other relatives and friends.
As a result of his demise, heaven has just gained a genuine hero, and the planet will become a considerably less thrilling and more serene place as a direct result of his departure. Turrell served as a judge on the panel until his death at the age of 70 due to a prolonged illness that began with a stroke. He had been ill for a long time. As a judge, he presided over cases involving differences between multiple administrative divisions of the government. He brought justice and compassion to the treatment of the most vulnerable people of society.
In 1984, he was appointed to a position on the social security courts and began hearing appeals from those who were denied welfare assistance. His wise judgements were lauded by the tens of thousands of people who took their cases to the various courts. When he made the decision in 1993 to focus his legal practice on a certain subject of the law, he gave up the more lucrative work he had been performing at the bar and accepted a post as the full-time legal chair of appellate tribunals. He made this decision after attending a conference in 1993 that led him to conclude that he wanted to specialize in a particular subfield of the law.
In 1996, he was lauded for bringing a fresh college approach to administration and personal development, which earned him plaudits at the time. He received the praise as a result of using this method. Since his appointment in 1999 as the full-time district chair of appeal tribunals for east England, a position he held until the day he retired, he served in this capacity until the day he announced his retirement.
