He was preceded in death by his wife, Nell; daughter, Lisa; son, Brian; and brother, Wilbin. He is survived by his daughter, Monica; sons, Kevin and Corey; daughter-in-law, Krista Keiper; and sisters, Beryl and LaVonne. He was fortunate to have 8 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren.
The family, due to the times, weather, and pandemic, will plan to have a memorial service in the summer of 2021. Thank you for all those who helped care for him in his last years and have cared about him his entire life.
