Morris, IL, Janet (Ken) Olson of Oregon and daughter-in-law Andria Sheely of Arizona; sister-in-law Linda Gaul of Byron, IL; brother Kevin (Bonnie) Gaul of Springfield, IL; grandchildren Jessica (David Wawzenek) Weller, Adam (Christina) Weller, Taylor Sheely, Allison Sheely, Chris (Amanda) Olson, Kenny and Jacob Olson .
