His love for the outdoors spilled out into camping with his family, working in his garden, and hanging out in the barn where he had a vast collection of signs.

In addition to his wife he will be fondly remembered by his children Heather Price, husband Eddie, Troy Sallee, wife Monica, and Ashley Hart, 8 grandchildren, and a great granddaughter, as well as his sister Bonnie Shewmaker, husband Kenneth and brother Ed Sallee, wife Diane. He leaves many memories with friends, coworkers, and extended family members.

He was preceded in death by a son-in-law Travis Hart.
