Ronald W. Turley of Nicholson passed away Monday at Hospice of the Sacred Heart with his loving family by his side.

Born in Scranton, he was the son of the late Bernice Turley of East Benton, Pa. Ron served in the United States Naval Construction Battalions SEVEN, better known as the Seabees, proudly serving his country for several overseas tours. Before his retirement, he had a lengthy career in the construction industry, previously employed by Dorsan Inc., Honesdale, Pa. and Resorts USA.

Ron is survived by two sons, Jason Turley and Jonathan Turley, both of Nicholson; stepdaughter, Ronda Beemer and husband, David Beemer, Clarks Green, Pa.; stepson, Scott Middlekauff and partner, Kathy Huggins-McGovern, Lester, Pa.; a sister, Judy Darko and husband, Ken Darko, Kingsport, Tenn.; eight grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. He was also preceded in death by a son, Justin Turley; and former wife, Faye Royce-Turley.

The family wishes to thank the staff of Hospice of the Sacred Heart for the exceptional care given to Ron, and also to Ron’s niece, Brenda Baines, who never left his side during his hospice care.

A private military memorial service will be held by his family at a later date.
