Survivors include his daughter Michele Persinger and husband Tim of Clay City; son Ty Jefferies and wife Deb of Terre Haute; grandchildren, Tanner Persinger (Brandi), Jaylond Jefferies, Chad Jefferies, and Sierra Wheeler; one great-granddaughter, Layla Wheeler; many nieces, nephews and extended family. He also leaves behind, his special friend and companion of the past ten years, Peg Latham.
