He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Darrell, and sister-in-law, June Markijohn; brother-in-law, James Pheyles; and sister-in-law, Marclene Markijohn.

A Memorial Service will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 16th, at the North Kingsville Presbyterian Church, 6546 Church St., North Kingsville, Ohio, with Pastor Kenneth J. Ayers officiating.
