He was always kind and gentle and willing to help others. He enjoyed woodworking, swimming and time with his family. He and his wife supported local softball, basketball teams and the "Rocks."

He is survived by his daughters, Emily (Harold Masengarb), Susie (Kevin Hubred), sons, David (Barbara), Scott (Karen), and Jerry (Luz), siblings Doris (Clint Ryan) and Steve. 

He was preceded in death by his wife, Betty, daughter Paula, brothers Albert and William, and grandsons Nathaniel, Andrew, and Carl.
