Turney had been diagnosed with brain cancer on March 19 and underwent surgery on March 22 at St. Louis University Hospital, according to his Web site, He died at 2:33 p.m. Saturday. A funeral service was held Tuesday at the Kutis South County Chapel in St. Louis. He will be buried with full military honors Friday in his hometown of Santa Ana, Calif.
