Charley Puhr emphasized how honored he

us to serve them for all of these years. We'll miss it for sure, but we’ll also enjoy sleeping in now. You just kind

Turner’s will partner with Mayo Auction & Realty for an online auction of antique and collectible bicycles,
unique items, tools and fixtures, and current remaining inventory, available online at https://www.auctionbymayo.com.
