He was preceded in death by his parents, and sister, Mirtha DuPerault.

He is survived by his daughters, Liz (Andy) Concannon of Minden, NV, Robin (Lew) DeBock of Gardnerville, NV; and sons, Joe (Kerry) DeBock of San Diego, CA and Matt (Ann) of Reno, NV; and sister, Jane McCulloch of Chico, CA; five grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Cremation was in care of FitzHenry's Funeral Home in Gardnerville. No services are planned at this time.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations may be made in Mr. DeBock's name to a favorite Charity or local Library.
