He is survived by his siblings Peter B. Ceppi and wife E. Jean Ceppi of Jamestown; Nicholas G. Ceppi and wife Elizabeth W. Ceppi of West Redding, Conn.; and Susan C. Bussmann and husband William J. Bussmann of Caballo, N.M. He is also survived by five nieces and nephews, three great-nieces and greatnephews, and his wonderful, loving Green End family.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, Sept. 24, at 10 a.m. at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church.
