He is survived by his daughter, Mary Evelyn Mann Pafford and son-in-law Larry Pafford of Alamo, TN; two grandchildren, Tracy Kail (Jeff) and Kevin Pafford; his longtime and devoted caregiver, Teresa Smith; one sister, Sue MacPhail and brother-in-law, Bob Parks of Brownsville, TN and his special friend, Michael Rutherford of Nutbush, TN.
