Be at peace dad now your with mom and Richie.
My father left me with wonderful memories of my childhood. Our numerous trips to Niagara Falls, picnics at stony brook park, and vacations at the cabin in Canada.
One in particular is when we lived in Rochester New York. My dad was busy with work and night school, but always had time for his children, he built this huge sand box and hauled beach sand in the station wagon. All the neighborhood children would play, it was so big it was like we were at the beach every day.
I will miss my dads jokes, great cooking, and love for his grandchildren.

Many summers spent in New York with Oma and Opa provide the best of my childhood memories .
A great cook , my favorite foods come from the kitchen of Opa ,bacon cheeseburgers , milkshakes, midnight ramen , cubesteak and spinach, kreupouk and sate ..... Rides on the lawnmower , tractor or the moped , his "dirty" jokes during dinnertime or anytime , Cloud and bird watching , classical music, the hobbit or Danny kaye's grimm's fairytales on the record player .
I can still see him sitting in his spot at the dining room table , with papers and or manuals , tons of pens and pencils ,headphones on or in the garage working on the jimmy, sitting in his corner of the couch or having coffee/tea with oma in the front yard.
His Great Grandaughter Alyssa VanToorenburg looked at him with stars in her eyes as most children did and he was just as captivated by her, he also had this effect on animals. Forever admired by the family he created we couldn't have asked for a better Geweldige Opa, Opa or Vader.
