An avid reader and golfer, he was a member of East Aurora Country Club.

Survivors include his wife of 43 years, the former Martha Beanan; a son, Christopher Joseph; two daughters, Heather Jane Frederick and Melissa Anne; a sister, Diane Brown; and four grandchildren.

Services will be at noon Saturday in Wood Funeral Home, 784 Main St., East Aurora.
