He is survived by numerous cousins including Theresa (David) Middleton, Patrick (Barbara) Brennan, Elizabeth McGraw, and Karen (David) Ackerman. The family would like to acknowledge and thank his guardian angel, Kristine, who got his mail, provided some meals, and checked in on him over the last year when he needed it all out of the goodness of her heart.
