He is survived by son and daughter-in-law, Jeremy and Katrina Simerly; granddaughters, Sadie, and Samantha Simerly; former spouse, Charlotte Simerly; brothers, Gary (Brenda) Simerly, Grady Simerly (Terry Lawson); sisters, Gennia Cochran (Ty), Cornelia “Corky” (Jimmy) Long. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews, whom he loved dearly.
