He later married Kathy Bevier on Sept. 30, 1995, at Lake of the Forest in Bonner Springs, Kan. 

He was preceded in death by his parents; and a sister, Barbara Meadows. 

He is survived by his wife Kathy; daughter Tina Smith and husband Rod, Gardner, Kan.; stepson Brian Gilhousen and wife Cayce, Kansas City, Mo.; a brother, Bill Alumbaugh and wife Shirley, Hutchinson; a sister, Melinda Huff, Wellsville, Kan.; three grandchildren, Quentin, Erin and Ashley; and three great grandchildren, Macen, Kasen and Bryden.

Memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, July 12, at the First Baptist Church, Mound City. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. to service time Thursday, July 12, at the church. Burial will be at the Woodland Cemetery.
