Former longtime Arizona lawmaker Stan Turley has died.
Family members say the 93-year-old Turley died Saturday of natural causes.
Turley served in the state Legislature from 1965 to 1987 and was a former Speaker of the House and a state Senate president.
Gov. Jan Brewer called Turley one of Arizona's finest public servants who was a statesman in every sense of the word.
"I am deeply saddened by the passing of one of Arizona's finest public servants, Stan Turley," Brewer said in a statement. "...Stan was a statesman in every sense of the word. More than that, he was an admired colleague, beloved family man and dear friend to everyone who had the fortune of knowing him. I am grateful to count myself among them."
Turley's family said he's survived by seven children, 28 grandchildren and 56 great-grandchildren.
His funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday at a Mormon chapel in Mesa.
