Sorry to hear of your loss. We never know how many lives we touch with an act of kindness. Back in the early 80's when I was in college I was starting to do research on the family tree and I was able to meet Corl. He shared with me a copy of everything he had on the Colles family and I was hooked on genealogy. I have spent the last 35 years working on expanding what he shared with me.
In doing so I shared his work along with the new information that I found to others some of whom became hooked on the hobby themselves and they in turn did the same sharing of information to others. His one act of kindness has impacted more lives then he never knew about. Hundreds of people now know more about their history than before all because of one act of kindness.
We never met again but I always looked forward to his Christmas cards with a brief note.
Thought you might like to know your father touched more lives then he ever knew.

Sorry to hear of Corl's passing. We lived across the street for many years. Corl was a very kind and considerate person. He shared his beautiful property with me for years which was great hunting and very picturesque. Corl would bring Julie fresh flowers out of his garden, which she loved. He was a "Great" neighbor.
