Glenn E. Turk, of Warren, passed away on January 3, 2018, surrounded by his family after a brief illness.

Glenn was born November 21, 1938, to the late Robert Lee and Viola Turk.

He was proud of his service in the United States Air Force, serving “4 years, 3 months and 13 days.”   Following the service, Glenn worked at the National Forge Company for 35 years, retiring in 2000.

Glenn proudly raised registered Charolais cattle and was a two time Pennsylvania Conservation Farmer of the Year award recipient. Glenn was an active member of the 4-H Clubs of Warren County and a past president of the Warren County Fair Board.

Glenn is survived by his best friend and wife of 55 years, Carol Turk; son and daughter-in-law, Lee and Melissa Turk, of Warren; daughter, Lisa Turk, of Pompano Beach, FL; granddaughter and great-granddaughter—Cayla and Alivia Hoffman, of Russell. Glenn is also survived by a brother, Gordon Turk, of Titusville; sisters, Jean Gray, of Deltona, FL, and Shirley Walker, of Cochranton, PA.

In addition to his parents, Glenn was preceded in death by a sister, Lucille Warren; and brothers, Howard, Francis, Raymond, Charles, Bruce and Ken.

Per Glenn’s wishes no visitation or services will be observed.  Memorials commemorating Glenn’s life may be made to Hessel Valley Lutheran Church of Chandler’s Valley or St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Carol and family, I knew Glenn through his work at National Forge. He sure lived his life to fullest and you have many good memories to look back on. I so enjoyed my visit to your farm a few years ago and was looking forward to visiting you both again this summer. You have my deepest sympathy at this time. Wayne Parrish, Ionia, NY

To Carol Lisa, Lee, and family,
Glenn was a 4-H leader, supporter, and believed in kids, by helping them to do their best. He was a problem solver, and I appreciated his skills many times in the 4-H youth program and county fair. His sense of humor kept things in perspective. His work with the "Future of Ag in Warren County" made it a good economic Cooperative Extension program. It was a pleasure to learn from Glenn.

My deepest sympathy to Glenn's family. Although I didn't know him personally, my daughter Sasha, was a fair queen first runner up one year. She of course had to hand out ribbons for some of the shows and worked with Glenn for several. He was very kind to her and they laughed one time during one of the shows, he mistakenly called her the queen. What a kind and gentle man he was. May you find comfort in knowing that he touched many far beyond your wildest dreams. Again my condolences to you all.

Lee and Family,
I met and knew Glenn through the Forge. He was a true "gentle-man" He was always kind and a pleasure to talk with. So glad I ran into him at the fair last year. He will be missed!! He sure did have a passion for his family and for life !!!! Fly high, until we meet again.

To all the Turk family I want to extend my sincere sympathy for the loss of your loved one and my friend from many years ago. I first met Glenn in 1957 when we were stationed together in the U.S. Air Force in Misawa, Japan. I was so glad that Glenn attended our annual veterans reunion in 2013. Glenn was a genuine gentleman who was highly respected by all the old veterans who knew him. May God bless all your family.

Gordon and Glenn’s family, so sorry for your loss. Rode the same school bus as Glenn for a while. My Dad Harold Metcalf worked for Glenn’s father Lee on the Terrace Farm back in the day. The Turks were friends thereafter. Hold your memories close and he will remain in his heart.
