"We're doing well," said DelRay Geidel. "We have family here and we're doing well."
Geidel said his father, a retired farmer, was an avid fisherman and card player who enjoyed stopping in town for a cup of coffee with friends. He also served on the local church and township boards.
"He was just a good man," he said.
Geidel disputes the claim made by investigators that his father was not wearing a seat belt when the crash occurred.
