He had worked at various companies and jobs throughout his life. A few being Halliburton, Vanbron, and Otis Eastern, as well as logging with his friends. He was also a skilled stone mason.

He is survived by sisters, Lynn Panton of Rochester  NY,  and Sara Panton of Tomball TX.  Brother Tim Panton (Audrey Appling) of South Dayton NY. Nephew Brian Panton of North Adams MA, and many extended family members.
