John was amazing, from his unlimited inquisitive personality to his quest for fairness in life, John lived for adventure, great food, and learning. John now lives with our Lord, has unlimited adventures and knows all the answers. John left us much too early.

I am deeply sorry for your loss. John was a fine young man. He always had a smile on his face. You should be proud of the son you raised. May God give you strength and comfort at this difficult time.

Dear Turley family,
Words can't express how my heart aches for you! I will miss the morning & after school visits from John. He was always ready with a story of something he had done, whether it was starting the van, getting his car ready for pine car derby, telling me a fun fact he had just learned or tattling on Molly! I'm glad I got to enjoy your son!
Praying for you all,

Some of my fondest memories with John were in Cub Scouts I remember after the meets in the summer at your house we would go outside and play I remember sometimes we would go catch toads and frogs and see whose was the biggest and I always remember he loved school buses and wanted a picture of every one it's hard to he had all sorts of fun facts to share every time you saw him and story's of fishing and hunting

Dear Scott, Stacy, Molly, Matthew and Lucy,
It seems like just yesterday that John was in my kindergarten class. He was such a delight. I loved his sense of humor and love for life. He loved it when you walked to school with Molly to pick him up. His smile will always be remembered and his kindness. May God grant you peace in this difficult journey! Call if you need anything.
