He was also an avid collector of both sports cards and coins, enjoying flea market shopping with his wife. He had a deep appreciation for all things automotive and restored several classic automobiles. Most of all, he loved his children and grandchildren, of whom he was very proud.

He is survived by a daughter, Alanna Bright, and husband, Joe, of Scranton; a son, David Chandler, and wife, Bryanne, of Avon, Connecticut; a sister, Peg Nelson, and husband, Tom, of Olyphant; and three brothers, Frank, Robert, and Perry, all of Dunmore.
