Sisters Necia Guliker, Joanne Grisnich, and Mary (Jack) Vandenberg. Brothers Casey (Elberta) Guliker and Harry (Juliana) Guliker, sister in law Corrie Boesterd and numerous extended family.

He was predeceased by his parents, three brothers, one grandchild, 3 nieces, 1 nephew and several brothers and sisters in law.
