My dad loved the Lord, my mom, grandkids, great-grandkids, and his friends. He was a kind and proud man who loved to play the guitar and sing. He loved to hunt and fish. He has a wonderful sense of humor and loved to laugh. He is my rock. He was firm, but a gentle man. A daughter couldn’t have asked for a better dad, he was the best. He enjoyed seeing and talking to his grandkids and great-grandkids. He would just light up like a beam. He was a giving man. He also enjoyed his friends and his talks with them. My dad stayed as long as he could with my mom and us. The Lord said it was time for my dad to be with him. He wanted his child in his eternal home. We will cry many tears and memories of my wonderful dad. But, us closest to him will know he is in no more pain. he is doing what he enjoys… singing in Heaven and playing his guitar and now walking. My dad is an Angel in Heaven, just like he was our angel on earth. Dub is preceded in death by his parents.
