He married the former Becky Snyder, his longtime friend. She survives.

His pastimes included hunting rabbit, grouse, pheasant, and deer, as well as raising beagles and beagle-basset hunting dogs. Like his father, he enjoyed fly fishing and tying his own flies. He was an avid reader, collector of guns and hunting memorabilia, and loved watching his daughter swim competitively for the Brookville YMCA Barracudas Swim Team.
