He was a devoted member of Meadow Park Church of God, where he served in many capacities. He loved the church, his family, and two grandchildren, who provided many years of happiness.

He is survived by his four children, Summer (Ray) Jones, Autum (Gary) Belyk, Todd (Shirley) Hershner, and Tim (Jennifer) Hershner, his two grandchildren, Abigail and Grant, as well as many nieces and nephews.
