Michael (Julie) Spencer; granddaughter Sarah Anne; grandsons Joseph and Salvatore; honorary grandchildren David Franz-Snow & Dayna Snow – Franz; brother-in-law Daniel (Rachel) Penny; nephews Lewis (Allison) Penny and Nathan (Kara) Penny; cousins Mike (Donna) Powers, Chris (Theresa) Powers and Joe (Donna) Powers, as well as numerous other cousins also survive.
