Wayne Turley Obituary
In Loving Memory
Wayne Turley passed away at his home on December 28, 2017 following a long illness. His wife, seven children, and their spouses supported him until the end. Wayne was a true Arizonan and he treasured the faithfulness and determination of his parents, Wallace and Margaret Turley, and grandparents who helped settle northern Arizona. He loved growing up in Mesa.
Wayne attended BYU, where he met Nancy Romans on the first day of classes. He served his mission in Porto Alegre, Brazil, setting an example for his children who also served missions. Five years after meeting, Wayne and Nancy were married in the Manti Utah temple. He attended ASU Law School while also providing for his family. They had four children by the time Wayne took the bar exam. Wayne practiced law for 35 years.
His family moved to Utah in 2006. Wayne served faithfully in the church and was an example to others. His help was enlisted for many events. He was very happy to get to be Scoutmaster for two of his sons.
He was a skilled planner and builder. He encouraged others to get an education, including Nancy, as he felt education was important. Wayne's generosity, concern, advice, and love will be missed. He is survived by his wife, Nancy, and his children Hilary, Cara (Jake Cazier), Ty, Janis (Christopher Hansen), Laron (Rachel), Reed (Remi), and Maryn, and his 13 grandchildren. He is proud of all of them.
