(Kim) Geyer of Wales; his daughter, Heidi Geyer of Germantown; Sonia (Favare) Siliaga of Olympia, Wash. and Bill Strausberger of Chicago, Ill.; his grandchildren, Sara, Scott, Juan Anthony, Jesse, Dana and Clayton; and great-grandchildren, Gavin, Mason, Anna and Rose.
In addition to Judy, he was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Emmeran.
