He is survived by his loving wife, his son Kyle Thomas (Amanda) Anderson, daughters, Dawn Wilson and Christine (Mark) Self, grandchildren, Mark Self, Brendon Self, Lars Wilson and Alyssa Wilson, great-grandchild Hayden Self, sister Ellen (Frank) Draffkorn, god-daughters, Brittney Vore and Erin Woosley and many nieces and nephews.
