He was preceded in death by his parents, Alma and Ed, sister, Ruth Thompson. He is survived by son, Joseph of Winslow, Arizona, and daughter, Mary (Roland) Chamberland of Oak Hills.

He also leaves brothers Robert (Paula), and Charles (Jan), of Akron, brother-in-law, Bernie Thompson, and many nieces and nephews. The family would like to extend special thanks to Amabel and staff of Joy Residential Care for the love and care they gave him.
