Memories of my Dad

In the way a young child normally would, I drew a picture with the blue sky on top, green grass on the bottom, and a blank white space in the middle. I remember my Dad walking me outside to show me how the sky and the earth meet (no blank space).

Growing up, when there was an event that I got dressed up for, like a holiday, party, or school dance, my Dad would whistle and tell me how nice I looked as I walked down the stairs in our house in Country Club Hills.

My Dad was very involved in my brothers’ sports growing up, especially baseball. My brothers were always on winning teams. To be fair, one year he coached my girls’ softball team. Our team was awful, and I’m sure he hated it, but I loved having him as my coach.

Every year, without fail, my Dad would buy all the girls in our family Easter corsages. I will truly miss this tradition.

During a particular difficult time when I was 16 years old, I was petrified to tell my Dad news that a Dad would not want to hear. My Dad, the best dad ever, hugged me tight for a very long time while I cried my eyes out and assured me that all would be okay. And it was!

Advice on buying houses, cars, and finances in general. He taught me well. I remember going with him to buy my first car, a Ford Escort with black, vinyl seats and no air conditioning.

Going over the top for everything! When my kids were small, he built them the biggest swing set/clubhouse anyone has ever seen.

My Dad’s love for trains…He had a gigantic collection with bridges, buildings, and endless track.

My Dad was the family handyman. He could fix almost anything, not necessarily up to code, but it would get fixed. He would come up with an idea for something and have sleepless nights figuring out how to make it work.

My Dad loved pretzels, pickles, and his unique concoction of orange juice and flavored drink mix. When anyone made cookies, he always wanted us to burn a few for him. That’s the way he liked them.

My Dad was such a wonderful grandfather to my kids, Ashley, Joey, Niki, and Gaby. He was always there for their sporting events, school plays, concerts, etc. He even coached Niki’s travel softball team for a couple of years.

I loved seeing my granddaughters Violet, Summer, and Charlotte playing with my Dad. They loved their great-grandfather “Appa.” I am so thankful that they were able to know my Dad. This past summer, since the great-granddaughters couldn’t go the community pool, he bought them a simple blow-up pool for $100 on Amazon. What started out with the purchase of a blow-up pool, ended up as a mini waterpark.

I thank God for giving me the best father here on earth and that I was able to spend 51+ years with my Dad. Dad, I will see you again someday, but until then, I will miss you every day!

Love your daughter, Carol

My father was the greatest example of how a husband should love his wife and a son should take care of his mother and family.

I will spend the rest of my life trying to live up to the bar you have set.

Love you Dad,

Jeff
