They are the proud parents of three children: Lynette (Bruce) Hamby, of Santa Fe, New Mexico; Keith (Carole) Armitage, of Salen, South Carolina; and Herbert (Jeanne) Armitage, of Bridgman.
They have seven grandchildren: Jeremiah Hamby, Rebekah Hamby Netters, Trenton Armitage, Zack Prehn, Bree Prehn, Stephen Armitage and Ian Armitage.
