He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, and four sisters. As of late, he was a Greeter at Wal-Mart.

Survivors include his beloved wife, Sue Barnum Kees, his daughters, Phyllis Kees Rodriguez (husband Kern) and  Lillie Kees, and his son, Dennis Kees. He also leaves his grandson, Duane Batusic (wife Cindy), two great-grandkids, Rose and Alex, his sister, Barbara York (husband Phil), and a host of nieces and nephews.
