I have read where his wife of almost 50 years survives, along with their 2 children. I have also read that he and Pam (his first wife) divorced several years ago and he remarried. What is the TRUTH? We were in the same high school at the same time; I was a year ahead of him. His wife Pam Cole was also in school at the same time.
