My father always took good care of my mother, who passed away unexpectedly in 2013. He also raised and took good care of my brother Bart and I. We are both well educated, respectful of others, caring and humble because of my father. While other fathers were teaching their children to walk, my father had already done that and was teaching us how to swim. While other fathers were teaching their children to ride a bike, my father had already done that and was teaching us how to fly a single engine plane. That was my father! Rest in peace Pop.

My father not only lived an amazing life, but gave our mom and my brother and I amazing lives too. Because of his career our mother never had to work. He put before us most every past time available- football, baseball, basketball, swimming, tennis, golf, track, soccer, photography, flying, fencing, sailing – because of our dad he helped us see the world was our oyster and the possibilities are still endless. Thank you Dad for all you did for us – We Love You Pop!!!
