He was employed with Industries for the Blind in Asheville; he loved each and every one of his colleagues. He often referred to them as family.

He is survived by his loving and caring wife of 35 years, Sheila Noblett McCall; his daughter, Meredith Simpson and her husband, Tim of Hendersonville; his son, Chad McCall and his wife Mallory of Asheville; three grandchildren, that were the absolute love of his life, Jacobi, Malachi and Julianna Simpson of the home.
