Survivors include the love of his life Kimberly (her Daughter Amber), New York; Son Joshua, Lawrence; Daughter Jessica, Lawrence; Mother Shirley, Oregon; Aunt Sylvia Bigsby, Baldwin City; Sister Sherry Freeman-Wherry brother in law Ridley, Texas; niece, Amber Cook, Virginia; Granddaughter Kaylin, Lawrence; Grandson Colby, Lawrence; as well as many other family members and friends.
