He and his wife served an eighteen-month mission for the church in Toronto, Ontario, from 2010-2012. In his spare time, he enjoyed reading, collecting coins and antiques, and going out for burgers.

Predeceased by his wife, Peggy (2016), and son, T.J. (2008), he leaves behind three children and thirteen grandchildren; Kriste (Chris) Rose and their children; Ally and Kylee; J. Barton (Barbara) McNabb and their children; Clarke (fiancé, Stefanie), Parker, Derek, Aaron, Ty; and Patrick (Audrey) McNabb and theirchildren; Brooklynn, Logan, Boston, Madison, Jameson, and a baby girl due in December.
