This is from his obituary. Search on the names Donna Leithmann and Lois Abbott (or their children using both last names). I'd start with a facebook search. General internet search will likely show something from public records.

He is survived by two daughters, Donna Leithmann, wife of the late Joseph, and Lois Abbott, wife of William; five grandchildren, Bonnie of West Virginia, Laurie of Arizona, Susan (Sam) of Gilbertsville, Kim (Mike) of Lansdale, and Bill (Courtney) of Conshocken; and two great-grandchildren, Samantha and Parker.

Bill was a U.S. Army veteran, having served in World War II. He saw action in Belgium, Germany and France in the Tank Destroyer Unit. After the war ended, he was an escort for General Eisenhower and Charles DeGaulle.
