Survivors include three brothers, Joe, George, and Johnny (Sandra) Day; a sister, Rachel (Garland) Cummins; five children, Margaret (Charles) Burton, Tim (Melinda) Dailey, Tracy (Tommy) Gooch, McKinley (Kim) Dailey, and Paula (Eddie Ray) Cantrell; fourteen grandchildren, Sheri, Chris, Matthew, Casey, Lindsey, Daniel, Jamie, Jenny, Holly, Jordan, Parker, Zakariah, Coty, and Jesse; twenty-seven great-grandchildren, Hagen, Kaydence, Keegan, Cliffton Jr., Cassara, Alexa, Austin, Paytin, Cadin, Dawsin, Emma, Ava, Lilly, Bennett, Ruby, Ella, Lila, Jacob, William, Natalie, Conner, Gunner, Tyler, Taylor, Trista, Raylan, and baby Dailey; and two great-great-grandchildren, Tripp and Casin.

The union of Paul and Nerva began a journey of sixty-six years together. They leave to continue their journey a family whom they loved dearly, teaching by example the love of Jesus Christ.
