Myers, Fla., Roy (Roxie) Veach, Burrows, and Sam (Sue) Veach, Bringhurst; one sister Martha (Bill) Powell, Galveston; and a good friend, Sheila Overton, who he called “Little Sis;” one grandson, Johnathan Veach, Ft. Bliss, Texas; step-grandsons, Gabriel White, Orlando, Fla., and Nathan Berkshire, Deer Creek; granddaughter Stacy (Jon) Scowden, Yeoman; step granddaughters Jessica (Craig) Babbs, Kokomo, and Victoria White, Kokomo.
