Two granddaughters, Darla Jo (Anthony) Bush, Melissa Nicole Simmons and one grandson, Bradley Wayne Simmons. Also surviving are 6 great-grandchildren that kept his eyes fluttering!
Many who knew Chib would find him in the wood pile splitting wood, chomping on his Redman, or possibly dancing with the Dixie Band at French Lick for his birthday. He loved spending time with his family and friends and getting in trouble! He never knew a stranger and you may just find him in the kitchen at any restaurant.
