His passion for photography, hunting, fishing, and traveling were his favorite pastimes.

With the help of 3 sons he built a log home and continued in his small farming hobby where bush-hogging his 46 acre ranch was prime time.

He is survived by his wife of 65 years Virginia (nee Walbridge); father of Pamela Chatt, Gregory (Debbie) Voss, Mike Voss, Mark (Cathy) Voss, Scott (Lisa) Voss. Also survived by 10 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.

Visiting hours will be at the C. B. Beach & Son Mortuary, Inc., 4 East Main Street, Corfu, N.Y. on Saturday, August 6th from 3 to 5 p.m.
Burial with full military honors will take place in Poetry, Texas at a later date.
