    Miniature King Liberty - a rare horn, indeed - View topic: Trumpet Herald forum

    Scroll down to Tony Scodwell's post on the topic of mini-King trumpets,etc. He said Rob Turk was given one by Harry and Rob passed away some years ago, I guess maybe in Vegas? and the union was trying to find a relative to settle some union business matters.

    There are 43 Robert Turk's at Find-a-grave, but I can't identify if he is listed.

    Maybe Tony Scodwell could help out or the Vegas Musician's union.

    Can't find out anything other references to him being Harry's lead trumpet player.
