He is survived by his other siblings Gladys Beam of Huber Heights, Maxine Merz of Tipp City and John (Betty) Brayfield of Xenia, in addition many nieces and nephews that loved listening to his stories and going to Uncle Gene’s farm.

Along with his wife of over 50 years, Jean Brayfield, he was preceded in death by his father and mother, siblings Paul Brayfield, Dale Brayfield and Mildred Jay.

To celebrate his life, services will be held on Tuesday May 9 at 10:30 am at the Zechar Bailey Funeral Home, 1499 N. Broadway, Greenville, OH with visitation at the funeral home on Monday May 8 at 6 – 8 pm.
