Former longtime Arizona lawmaker Stan Turley has died.

Former lawmaker Stan Turley served in the Arizona Legislature from 1965 to '87, and was former Speaker of the House and Senate President.

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.
