He is survived by his wife Barbara of 62 years. Five children, Nick (Beth), Jim (Michele), Doug (Kelli), Julie (Jed), Jennifer (Michael) Margherio and grandchildren Madelyn, Meghan, Nick, Lulu, Matt, Eliana, Alex, Ray, and Jules.

His family and friends were the true joys of his life. He loved spending time with his grandchildren sharing in his passion for the outdoors, hunting, fishing and golfing. The past 30 years Nick and Barb wintered in Florida where many great friendships were formed.

To all who showed their concern during the past months in Michigan and in Florida, our family thanks you. We will forever be grateful to the doctors and nurses at Beaumont Royal Oak and the Hospice of Michigan caregivers.
