He is survived by his Son James Travis of Rehoboth, daughters Loreen DeLong, Ruth Bryan,
and Dorothy Short, all of Rehoboth, eight grand children and twenty two great grand children.

His wife, Rosalie, died in 1960

Services were held at Harrington, his birthplace, with the McKnatt Funeral Home and he was buried in Hollywood Cemetery.
