He is survived by brother, John (Kathy); sister, Judy Terwillegar (Tom); son, Jim (Becky); three grandsons, Nick (Bri), Gabe (Tanisha), and Isaac; two great-grandchildren, Russell and Gwendolyn; cousins, nieces, and nephews. He is also survived by his friend and partner for 34 years, Patricia (Emerson); her two children, James (Bridget) and Lorie (Middleton); grandchildren, Brittany (Booker), Michael, Kayla, and Casey; and great-grandchildren.
