Replogle; his sister, Guyline Foutch and her husband Edward Lee; daughters, Melanie McDaniel and her husband Brannon, Nikki Replogle and her stepdaughter, Jessica Price; stepson, Casey Blevins and his wife Katrina; and grandchildren, Kala Bland, Brodie McDaniel, Banks McDaniel, Summer Blevins and Caley Blevins.
