During his high school years Turnbull captained the lacrosse team but also played football and basketball. At John Hopkins, he also started playing ice hockey, and graduated with a degree in engineering, after which he started working for the American Radiator Company. After joining the Maryland National Guard, Turnbull was mobilized when the United States entered the war, and was eventually promoted to lieutenant-colonel.
