Before graduating college, he met Molly, his wife of 39 years, at school. Together they have pastored in Canada and Maine before coming to Rhode Island. They also have raised two children, Margo and Levi. Margo is married to her husband Devon Philbrick, and Levi is married to his wife Gilannie. Margo and Devon have a baby girl named Petra.
