ST. LOUIS, February 22, 2018 – Clarence “Turk” Turley, an icon in St. Louis real estate for 55 years, passed away peacefully on February 21, 2018, at the age of 89.
A Korean War Veteran, Mr. Turley returned from service to work with his father in commercial real estate and was instrumental in the creation and development of Turley Martin – the most powerful commercial real estate firm in St. Louis. The Turley Martin Company evolved into Cassidy Turley, and in 2015 the Cassidy Turley organization merged with Cushman & Wakefield.
Turk’s commitment to the St. Louis Community extended well beyond his retirement in 2008. He was also a staunch advocate for his clients and was a major contributor to the development of the company’s culture, treating everyone with respect and care. A great joke teller, Turk was committed to his friends and colleagues and will be remembered as a visionary leader with a dedication to a culture of success.
Cushman & Wakefield extends our condolences to Turk’s wife, Janet, and his three children, Steve, Jim, and Sarah.
