Turk was a loving father and grandfather. He ran the Amco station in Schellsburg in the late 70’s and early 80’s. He also ran the Gulf Station in Schellsburg during the mid to late 80’s. Turk retired from PennDOT as a mechanic or as some would call it the “Mechanical Cook”. One of his favorite passions was being surrounded by family and friends and cooking for everyone. Everybody loved his cooking. He enjoyed slow rides around the Ridge with his dogs Snoopy and then Jacky all while having his Babygirl by his side. He will be greatly missed by all who loved and knew him.

Friends will be received on Monday, April 12, 2021 from 4-8 p.m. at Mickle-Geisel Funeral Home, Schellsburg with a memorial service held at 8 p.m. with Pastor Dan Oldham.
