In total, he and Gwendolyn are the proud parents of two sons and four daughters. Gwen and her husband had been together for 29 years when she passed away unexpectedly and went to live with the Lord. The wedding took place on July 22, 1984 in Hermiston, Oregon, and was attended by Eldon and Beverly Ann Thom.
This occurrence led to the birth of three additional sons and one additional girl, bringing the total number of children in his household to four.
