There are many things about dad that I will miss. He had an unwavering will and a positive outlook on life. He truly believed he was on this planet to help others and that he could find the good in all people. He went out of his way many times to make others feel better. In the last five or six years of his life, he survived a horrific car crash, an intestinal problem that required surgery, and a severe stroke and head injury. He impressed everyone with the way he struggled back from these major setbacks. He didn't make it entirely back from the stroke, but he made it far enough to enjoy a quality life that included attending Blackhawk games at the Stadium with family members. In his last years, dad was an extraordinarily loving and sweet man. I tend to believe that this part of him rebounded most from the stroke because it was always the strongest and most enduring part of him. It would be hard to put into words how much I will miss him. --His son, John.
