McKenzie and Rowyn; a sister-in-law, Betty Lee, Georgia; and many nieces and nephews.
He was also preceded in death by siblings, Robert, Donald and Grace Lee, Delores Potocki and Charlotte Spano.
His family wishes to thank Commonwealth Home Health Care as well as Dr. Mary Ann McDonald and her office staff for their amazing care and compassion.
