Losing my Father is one of the most difficult things I have had to endure.
I always knew how fortunate I was to have him as my father since some of my boyhood friends had to grow up without a father. There are not words to express his influence in my life. It is through his example that I learned to be the father and husband that I am today.

My father was hardworking, strong, loving and gentle. He loved his family and was deeply devoted to my mother and his three sons. As a child, I always looked forward to our regular visits with his siblings Minnow, Chuck, Roy, Danny, Gus, Louie, Becky, Rudy and Helen. They would reminisce and tell stories about their youth and I would always learn something funny about Dad and his siblings.

He showed strength and love right up until his last days with us.
I hope that one day, when I die, my children can look back, tell funny stories about me, and talk about how I loved them and their mother. Then, like my father, I will have led and complete life.
