Holly, first of all, let me say, "Hello"! That was a precious tribute of your dad. I remember your dad well, and the things I remember about him are many. I remember all the times he brought us McDonald's as we were getting on the bus to go to an out-of-town football game. LOL! I also remember all the times I spent the night at your house and how he would show interest in my life. He would always ask me how my day went and he and your mother, both, were very hospitable. I never saw him get mad, although I know he was human just like the rest of us. He just made sure he watched himself around others, which was a very admirable trait he had. I remember him sharing what the Lord had blessed him with, with others. He was such a giving person and he loved you with all his heart. Thank you, Holly, for sharing one of the most awesome tributes I've ever read! Your dad was, is and will always be proud of you and I know he's smiling at you right now. Take care and God bless you and your precious family. Love, Kim Wright Sharp

Holly,

I remember your Dad as a firecracker of a man. He was wound so tight that his energy was contagious. The greatest testament to him... is the way you turned out. A true legacy of all that was good and right about your father. I know what it is like to have love and respect for a father. God bless you and thanks for your tribute. It will serve your children well in the future to learn of how much you loved him.

Somehow I found this on my facebook page I think it came from Thom Schwabauer, I've enjoyed reading this thanks. You asked for memories, I have a lot of memories of your dad, but the one I want to share now...this was on August 12, 1978 it was a big day for me. It was my wedding day. He and your mom came to Hammond for the ceremony and HE led the ladies in decorating the church. I was so surprised that he had spent his day off doing that for me, not to be so sexist, but in 1978 most men were not into decorating, arranging flowers, ribbons and candles. In addition the wedding gift was very extravagant. A man who truly gave to others.
