“His body will be donated to people in need of organs and to medical research,” Ellen Duncan added.

“Until his final day, he was a father, son, husband, and brother who appreciated good-spirited competition and games, from Euchre to Scrabble. Regardless of who won, he loved to end the day by kicking up his feet and smoking a cigar to celebrate the cheerful moments that were constants in his life,” the obit said.
