He was allegedly attacked by one of his sons Mark who has pleaded not guilty to assault and battery on an elderly person resulting in serious bodily injury. Mark was not allowed to attend his father's funeral according to local police because he had been sent to a psychiatric facility. He had been deemed a potential danger to himself.
