He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Pauline; two children, Sam (Diane) Mason of Belding, and Missy (Larry) Sheffield of Olive Branch, Mississippi; four grandchildren, Nathan (Danielle) Mason, Kathryn (Alan) Sheffield, Alisha German, and Dylan Sheffield; five great grandchildren; siblings, Donald (Helen) Mason, Jimmy Mason, Francis Strouse, Mary Mason, and Delores (Gene) Cummings; brothers-in law, Phil (Mary) Kreft, Henry (Linda) Kreft, David (Mary) Kreft, and sisters-in-law, Linda Marsh, Christine Lear, Betty (Lou) Gouley, and Ruth Switzer; and several nieces and nephews. He truly loved his family, near and far, and cherished any family get togethers where he could visit with everyone there. He will be truly missed by all who knew him, and his memory cherished forever.
