He was a staunch supporter of temperance and an active church member for over 60 years, his church life dating from the time of the Wesleyan Methodist Church down to the United Church of today. He is survived by two daughters, Sadie at home, Mrs. Walter Badley, Port Hope; and two sons, A. E. Uren, Toronto; and R. N. Uren of Calgary, also four grandsons.
