When I picture my dad I see a man who is Larger than life!!! A man who lived each day with integrity and love. His character traits were very distinct: he was hard working, loyal, true, protective, honest, strong, competitive, matriculate, organized, and most of all loving. Many of these traits he passed on to me, Kurt and Monica.
I could always count on him, he was my friend, my confidant, but most important he is MY DAD! He helped me become the woman I am today, I am proud to be his daughter. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss him and think of him. I remember the great times we had together, his perfect lawn, his clean shinny truck and terrific BBQ's. His life and memory lives on, he has truly left our family with a wonderful legacy.
He will never grow old, his hair will not gray, his body will not be frail. He will forever be my hero, that strong wonderful man I call my DAD!!!!!
I LOVE YOU DAD,
