In 1931 he built a new funeral home which is at its present location of 423 West Broad Street Hazleton. William passed away in 1965.

     In 1958 his son, James A. Turnbach, former mayor of Hazleton and Army Veteran, joined his father the business. James attended Scranton University and also a graduate of the former Eckels College of Mortuary Science. James passed away in 1990.

     In 1992 James A. Turnbach, Jr. who was a graduate of Wilkes University and Simmons College of Mortuary Science took over the business and is the present owner.
