He is survived by his daughters Karen George of Dartmouth, Karla (Kendell) Colp of Beach Meadows. His son Kevin (Karen Dean) of Mersey Point. His grandchildren Ashley and Tanner George, Kennedy Colp and Aaron Weagle, Cody Whalen and Melissa Penny.

Each one is taken to heart and Doc would be humbled by such caring expressions. I just wanted you all to know that we the entire family acknowledge your kind words and do realize the scope of people his passing affects beyond the above names and our immediate circle.
