My father has been an amazing influence in my life.
On top of being one snazzy dresser (seriously, look at that denim vest and wide collar dress shirt!), he’s been the person that has stuck beside me through thick and thin. It may not sound like much, but a single father, raising a little girl is quite an accomplishment.
Thankfully, he was smart and snagged an amazing mom for me and wife for him.
He’s introduced my boys to many firsts, such as their first football game:
“Explored” nature with them:
And showed them how not to sled down a hill:
My father started a softball league for my sister, which in turn has helped so many girls stay out of trouble and pave the way for opportunities in their lives:
My boys have learned many valuable lessons, such as not sitting in the toe jam:
And the importance of holding your glasses between your teeth while you talk:
In all seriousness, he’s a man my boys look up to. He’s respected and loved by the people who know him and above all, he’s a fighter. He’s a champion for those who need him and one of the hardest working people I know.
I love you Dad! Happy Father’s Day
