My Dad was an awesome guy. He was always joking around and telling story's or singing funny songs. He could carry a tune and loved to sing. He loved to entertain by playing the harmonica for everyone. he had an awesome smile and the most beautiful crystal blue eyes.
He enjoyed telling story's about his time in the navy, including the battles he was in and the good times.
He gave up a tryout with the Pittsburgh Pirates to join his brothers and enlist when the war began.
He was a hard working guy and hardly ever missed a day of work, and continued working until his 80's.
He loved his family and his face always lit up when the grandchildren and great grandchildren came over. He always spent time with the kids and made each one of them feel special.
Some of my fondest childhood memories were of fishing trips, camping and time spent swimming or just playing in the back yard.
he was honest, warm. Caring and loving. No matter how he felt He always had time to talk and share a smile with you.
My dad was truly awesome! and I will miss him a hell of a lot, but I know he will always be with me, watching over me as I continue my Journey. I love you Dad!
