On September 2, 1978, he was married to Janice Petty at St. Gregory’s Catholic Church. They were engaged 31 days after their first date. To this union, Michael and Tyler where born. Doc was a devout Catholic who loved his faith and could be counted on to share his time and talent. He had a giving spirit and enjoyed helping wherever needed. Doc retired from the Kansas Department of Transportation after 41 years of employment and was the Highway Maintenance Supervisor for fourteen years. He enjoyed smoking food and visiting with customers at Bite Me BBQ. He and his wife, Janice, managed VFW Club 36 where thousands of children first learned to roller skate.

He volunteered many places including the Marysville Public Library, St. Gregory’s and RSVP. Cooking for family and friends and sharing laughs was one of his greatest joys. He was well known for bringing holiday cheer to young and old by being one of Santa’s "helpers". Music played a large part of his life including playing the guitar and singing in church. He was preceded in death by his parents, father-in-law, Gary (Charlotte) Petty and mother-in-law, Carole (John) Cunningham.
