Those surviving are his wife, Judy, stepson, Derick H. (Heather) Brown, Orion, and two brothers, Gary (Chris) Hancock, John Hancock, and a sister, Joni Vincent, all of Cambridge, 11 nieces and nephews, and 14 great nieces and great nephews.  His parents, a brother-in-law, Jeff Vincent, and a sister-in-law, Bonita Lindstrom, preceded him in death.
