My father was a very strong, prideful man. He developed health issues starting in 2008, from cardiac episodes, strokes, surgery on his leg, veins. He tried to keep a positive attitude even though he lost his driving privilege. Our father wasn’t perfect but all of us his kids and wife were loved.

His passing was sudden, but we were all here. His short term memory was all gone, but he could tell you about his first car and his first girl. Heaven gained a grumpy short-fused angel, we lost a man who may not be perfect, but he was perfectly ours.

God Bless you Dad, We love you!

My brother and our dad: 1977 Go Dale Earnhardt, Go Oakland A’S, Go Raiders, That was our shared passion.
