My (non-JW) son refuses to talk to any of his JW Uncles, Aunts and Cousins. His Daddy (me) DA'd over 30 years ago and has been shunned by the large JW part of his family ever since.
So, in my adult son's words, he had declared Jihad on the WTBTS and refuses to acknowledge any of them.
He's a successful popular fellow that everyone looks up to. They will miss him.
