Those who knew him say he will be remembered for his patience, compassion and kindness to others as well as for his listening skills, his understanding and encouragement.

Those who knew him say he is loved for the songs he sang, the stories he told, his deep love of music and his love of animals and nature.

He was a truck driver, a mechanic, machine operator and a mathematician. Those who knew him say he knew a great deal about animals and was talented in training them.

His family says he had the ability to calmly and patiently teach anything he knew to his children and grandchildren and that his greatest accomplishment was showing all of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren that they were deeply loved.

He is survived by his wife, Penny; his children and their spouses, Donna and Kevin Linville of Elgin, Michael and Jennifer Martin of Midland, Texas, Wade and Chris Martin of Auburn, Wash., Jimmie and Mary Martin of Clanton, Ala., and Lynn Croghan of Walla Walla, Wash.; 23 grandchildren; and 22 great-grandchildren.
