Almost certainly 9/16" x 20tpi, unless a previous owner switched the crank arms to Shimano Dyna-Drive or metric French.

One piece cranks are easy to recognize because they thread through an oversized bottom bracket shell. They are often found on low priced department store bikes. They take 1/2" pedals. Pretty much everything else takes 9/16" pedals.

FWIW, I find it interesting that pedal sizes haven't changes while most of the rest of the bike has gravitated to metric measurements.
My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.
