He is lovingly survived by his wife of 42 years, Teresa Riley Setterholm; daughter, Emily Lemon and husband Paul; son, Jeffrey Setterholm and wife Pamela; grandchildren, Sawyer and Gus Lemon and Brayden Setterholm; sisters, Betsy Jenkins and husband Lane and Theresa Crowder and husband Motie, and brother, Richard Setterholm and wife Teresa.
