He and his brothers left the farm to work in California during the Great Depression, eventually going to Mexico, Florida and then back to Gregory.

On June 25, 1932, he married Vera D. St. Pierre and they farmed south of Gregory.

He served on the school board and with his church, helping build St. Joseph's Church in Gregory.

In 1979, they retired from farming and moved into Gregory.

His wife died in 1992.

He is survived by his four children: Lorin and wife Linda, Burke; Marta Nixon, Conyers, Ga.; Monty and wife Beth, Point Reyes, Calif.; and Craig and wife Roxanne, Pierre; 14 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his wife, a daughter, Sharon Jackson and husband Carl, his parents, four brothers and a sister.
