Brother Neal (Judy) Peart of Woodland, sister Beverly Furnish of Rancho Cordova, stepsisters, Nora Carlin of Gridley, and Judy Carroll, sisters-in-law Sara Dorn and Susan (Stan) Kauffman of Kelseyville.

The family would like to thank Dr. Yee and the staff in the ICU at Woodland Memorial Hospital for their wonderful and compassionate care, and the Dunnigan Fire Department and the Arbuckle Fire Department for their quick response and help.
