Obituary for Lewis Edward Turley

Lewis Edward Turley, 86, passed away early Tuesday morning, 5/8/2018, with his family by his side. A memorial service will be held Friday, 5/11/2018, at 11:00 a.m. at the Heath Funeral Chapel to celebrate Ed's life. Ed was born in Lakeland, Florida on September 26, 1931 to John and Ethel Turley and remained in Lakeland his entire life. He married his high school sweetheart in 1950, Betty Jean Johnson, at the age of 19 and they have remained together for 67 years. He joined the Army in 1949, defended his country in the Korean War, and received an honorable discharge in 1952. After his term in the Army he worked as a shipping clerk at Crown Cork and Seal for 32 years and retired at age 53, but Ed was not the retiring type and he continued working through his retirement as a salesman at Sears for another ten years. He is survived by his wife, Betty Jean Turley, his three daughters, Peggy Sue Duncan, Sandra Louise Metcalf and Elizabeth Diane Turley and his two sisters, Belle Niendorf and Melvina Hettel. He is also survived by his 13 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren who love him dearly and will carry on the Turley name.
