In a new spinoff starring Gerry Turner, 22 more contestants were presented to BACHELOR Nation.

The death of his first wife Toni occurred before The Golden Bachelor’s lead began his search for love.

Who was Gerry Turner’s late wife, Toni?

Gerry Turner of The Golden Bachelor was married to his first wife Toni for 43 years.

She was born on November 22, 1951, in Ottumwa, Iowa, and lived in Indiana with her husband and their family.

Gerry and Toni were high school sweethearts who married in 1972 and had two daughters.

“We had a real typical but beautiful life, full of love, full of activity, and as years went on, I retired,” Gerry recalled of his marriage to Toni.

The retired restaurateur told viewers: “We had a plan and we had an idea of what our dream house was going to be.

“So when Toni retired at the end of May 2017, we bought that dream house and closed on it on June 6.

” From June 6 on, it didn’t go according to plan at all.

“She became ill and her situation got worse over a couple of weeks.

“No one’s ever going to replace Toni but the love of my daughters and my granddaughters pulled me out of a dark spot.

“I hope at the end of this, I’ll find that person to spend the rest of my life with that will complete our family.”

What was Toni’s cause of death?

Toni, 65, died on July 15, 2017 from a heart attack and kidney failure.

Her death was officially attributed to a combination of cardiac failure, shock, sepsis, and renal failure.Gerry told Good Morning America about his late wife’s death and how he copes: “She got robbed.”

“Every day that goes by, that’s the thought I have. I have her picture on a dresser in my closet.

“Every morning I give her the nod, ‘So what do you think about this?’ For a while, it was like I was having a hard time figuring out if she would be okay.

“But we always told each other, that when one of us goes, we want the other one to be happy.”
