If anyone knows my dad you all know he was the light and brought happiness everywhere he went, so let’s remember him that way”.
“Dad was one of the most hard working men that you could ever meet. No matter what dad would be there and never miss a day. My father took pride in his work and his company. He was always trying to figure out how to “ help out the next man”. He gave everyone shot. Dad didn't judge and dad didn't harm anyone. His heart was beyond huge and he wore his love through his smile. His magnetic smile always made me feel safe. He made sure of that. The main thing my dad wanted to do is protect is his family and he always said “Family is everything and family is first”. He was a perfect example of what a father is. Me and my siblings are truly and forever grateful”.
