He later went on to work for another eighteen years for the Knox County Housing Authority, until his retirement. He was an active and dedicated member of the Oaks Community Church, as well as an active member of the Witness Cross Team. There were many past times that he enjoyed, but none so much as spending quality time with his family and friends. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, and friend; he will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. Cremation rites will be accorded. A memorial service will be at 10:00 A.M. on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at the Oaks Community Church in Dahinda, Illinois, Rev. Marty Briney officiating.
