He is survived by his children Susan Holley, Kathleen Abrams and companion Lee Duttkin, Thomas Porlick and wife Debbie; his grandchildren Marie Chandler and husband Nolan, David Abrams and wife Rachell, Lauren Abrams and husband Dan, Thomas Porlick, Melissa Porlick; and his great-granddaughter Morgan Chandler.
