He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Shirley; five children, Kimberly Stover of St. Charles, MO, Stacey Noble (Eric) of Wood River, IL, Brandee Crutchley (fiancé, Charlie) of Bunker Hill, IL, Amanda Ratcliffe (David) of Bunker Hill, IL, and Danyele Hargrave (Adam) of Bunker Hill, IL; two sisters, Brenda Walker (Harvey) of Kentucky, and Terri Gunn (J.R.) of Meadowbrook, IL; an aunt, Louis Lowe of Meadowbrook, IL; 17 grandchildren; 10 great grandchildren; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
