A really good man .a family man . I wish I had a dad like him back then . But I was lucky enough that a lot of my friends parents kind of took me under their wing and your mom and dad are definitely in there. So he had a big impact on me as what a good man is saposed to be and what that looks like in the world. I think if I am half the man or father he was then I have done a pretty damn good job .
I saw him a few times at the gun store in the last couple years and he was still just the same awesome guy as always . Cracking jokes and happy as can be . Such a positive guy . And funny as the day is long . I’m sorry for your loss
praying for your family , I hope mom is ok ❤️
