He is survived by his beloved and dear friend Eric; his three nieces and nephew: Shelly Rappold, Ria Bridewell, Tara Ragan, and Andrew Munger; numerous cousins; special friends and caregivers at Echoing Valley Residential Center. The family is grateful to Nursing Supervisor Ashley at his home. He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Sarah Munger; and two brothers, Paul and David Shell.
