  2. My dad was a funny guy and a hard as a at the same time, there were times when I thought he was going to kill me but would make a wiseass comment and give you “the look” and you knew you messed up. I loved him and just wish he was still here to see my kids play ball, he would be proud of the men they are becoming, as I am. Happy birthday Dad.
