Recently learned of Coach's passing. He was a great football coach, but more than that, just a super guy and friend. May you rest in peace Coach. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Turley family. GOD BLESS.

My deepest condolences to the Turley family. Coach Don was a great man. He had a solid, positive influence on my life. My days at Penns Manor High School and beyond, were led by his example. Deepest sympathy, Bob Duncan - Class of 1962.
