His first wife, the former Helen Anderson, died Sept. 25, 1955. In 1958 he married Mrs. Emma Olson at Madison. She survives with five children, Mrs. Carl (Beverly) Solberg, Decorah, Iowa, and Ray, John, Nancy and Richard, all at home, and a stepdaughter, Roberta Olson, also at home.

Also surviving are his mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Hoops, a resident of the Havenet Nursing Home, Owen; two sisters, Mrs. Ed Huber and Mrs. John Wry, both of Spencer, and two brothers, Arthur Hoops, Green Bay, and Wilbur Hoops, Spencer. His father died in 1935.
