He remained a fish aficionado afterward and was also an avid gardener. Survivors include his wife, Sheri Ranson; a stepdaughter, Emily (Matthew) Bush of Jackson, Ga.; one step-granddaughter, Anastasia Bush; and one brother, Fred Ranson of Huntington. Chapman’s Mortuary, Huntington, is assisting the family.
