He is survived by his wife, Faye; mother-in-law, Wuanita Van Thuyne; sons, Jeffrey (Shawna) and Michael; sister, Arloa Ellertson (Lorin); nephew, Chad Ellertson (Jordan); brother-in-law, Mark Van Thuyne (Phyllis); step-niece, Julie Marsh (Chris) and her sons Matt and Bill; step-nephew, Rick Van Thuyne (Cory); stepdaughter, Abby Schmidt (Bill, and their sons, CJ and Eli); stepson, Lee Sullivan; numerous cousins and good friends.
