Also surviving is his mother-in-law, Christine Manning of Oil City; his sister-in-law, Katlyn Miller and her husband Jesse and their children Pierson and Nevaeh of Oil City; his grandmother, Carol Bender of Rockland; his closest friend, Elizabeth Chapman of Franklin; his foster dad, Ron Tatters and his wife Tonja and their children of Meadville; and his siblings: Emily Butryn (and her 3 children), Hugh Hartsell, Curtis Urey, and Marcus Stewart (and his son).
