He leaves behind his wife of 22 years, Roberta Humphrey of Ceres; his father, Harry

Humphrey; his children, John Humphrey, Derek Yokley and Tony Hernandez, Debra Stone, Sara Ivey and Lisa Flores; two brothers, Ted Dobson and Dennis

Dobson; two sisters, Sharon Peterson and Kimberley Stowell; and nine grandchildren.
