His greatest love was for his family; he was filled with pride for all their accomplishments and felt so blessed to see and enjoy so many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He is survived by his wife, Karen; daughters, Donna (John) Bell and Debbie (George Harry) Barlow; sons, Douglas (Alicia) and Brian (Michelle); 12 grandchildren, Josh (Ashley) Chumbley, Ken (Sara) Chumbley, Kevin (Jenna) Chumbley, Katie Leihsing, Kelly (Joe) Moore, Maggie Rummery, Brady Barlow, Tyler Barlow, Ryan Ott, Ashley (Ryan) Wood, Danny Kitchens and Jesse Ott; and 12 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents; his four sisters; and grandsons, Shawn and Ben Ott.
