Batch, Baden and Matthew Batch, Ambridge, PA; a great-grandson, Carter Batch; brothers, Kenneth Canterbury, Palm Bay, Florida; Charles Klinesmith, Largo, FL and Terry Klinesmith, Freedom, PA; a sister, Nancy Cresson, Mauk, GA and numerous nieces and nephews.

Friends will be received Tuesday from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. in the JOHN SYKA FUNERAL HOME INC., 833 Kennedy Drive, Ambridge, where a funeral service will be held on Wednesday at 11 a.m. by the Rev. Toney Salva, pastor of Discovery Christian Church of Cranberry. Interment will follow in Sylvania Hills Memorial Park.
