He was an avid sportsman and organized large hunting parties for friends and family in Central and Northern Arizona.

Survivors include his wife, Dolores Hershkowitz, of Wickenburg, three sons, Willie, Frank and Larry, all of Wickenburg; two daughter, Susan of New York, N.Y. and Nancy Figy, of Phoenix.

He is also survived by his mother, Sarah Hershkowitz, of Wickenburg; three brother, George and Richard Hershkowitz, of Wickenburg; and Mark Dowdy, all of Wickenburg; two sisters, Joyce Fields, of Wickenburg and Shirley Wachter, of Flagstaff and five grandchildren. Survivors also includes three aunts, Belle Deck, of Congress, Nora Jackson and Hazel Baker, of California and two uncles, Allen Hershkowitz, of Wickenburg and Carlos Monte, of California.
