"He Will Always Be My Baby" Says Tina Turner of Her Late Son Craig.

Just a few weeks after his death Craig Turner, the eldest son of singer Tina Turner, has finally made it to his final resting place.

On July 3, 2018 Craig Turner was found in his dead in his Studio City, California home of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

According to Tina's eldest adopted son, Ike Turner Jr., their mother had become distant from them and was "living her life" in Europe and putting the past behind her. He did say, however, that they were all "looked after" financially and that the last time he was in contact with his brother, Craig, that he "seemed OK."

"Tina was just 18 when she gave birth to Craig, whose father was a saxophonist named Raymond Hill.

Tina later married Ike Turner, who adopted her son and gave him his name.

Craig, who studied at Santa Monica College, was in real estate at Rodeo Realty, in the San Fernando Valley. He does not appear to have any children or be married at his time of death.

Tina has not yet made an official statement about Craig's death.The 'Proud Mary' singer has four children: her son Craig, and Ronnie, 57, her and Ike's only child together, as well as Ike's two children from his first marriage who Tina adopted when they married in 1962; Ike Jr., 59, and Michael, 58."

Hopefully the good deeds that Craig Turner did while he was alive will live on and become his legacy.
