They played at many venues and clubs around Wasatch and Summit Counties. He enjoyed singing with his nephews , Val and Keith Broadhead, at assisted living centers in Uintah and Utah counties.

Stepsons: Jack (Pattie) Muir , Terry (Carlene) Muir, Bill (Alisa) Muir and Larry (Kathy) Muir. He is also survived by 17 grandchildren, 35 great grandchildren, and one great-grandson on the way.
