He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Kelly, and their children, Billy and Jamie, his father and mother in-laws Ken and Rosemary,  sisters-in-law, Tracy and Barbara, and brother-in-law, Craig, his three nephews, Cody and his wife Sarah, Hunter, and Ben, two nieces, Lauren and Livi, great-niece, Kennedy, great nephew, Jaden and a multitude of close friends. He was predeceased by both his parents.
