Like Kim, I grew up watching Dad and Mr. Turley go back and forth with their quick wit and dry sense of humor. I will always remember Mr. Turley for that, and for the many memories at the lake and in the woods.

Our hearts are broken today. Jim was a true friend of the West and Vines family. He was more than my Dad's best friend, he was a brother to him. I'll always cherish the time at Lake Bistineau watching him & my Dad cut up & reminisce. He was a truly good man with a gentle heart. The Vines & West family will miss you Jim.

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Jim Turley our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Jim. And to Jim it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during the Vietnam War while serving in the U.S. Army. Jim, we commend you for your honorable service. You are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot warrior: courage, commitment, Generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. You were a true friend. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Jim's family and loved ones.
