“Dads are someone to look up to, follow, admire, be proud of, someone to learn from, give respect to, cry with, share everything with. My dad was all of those things and more. Dad was a penny-pinching prankster, a little bit of a hoarder, always “piddlin”, had a soft spot for dogs, loved his kids and even more so his grandkids. Could make the best camp fire, no matter the location. Loved bbqs, made the best camp taties this side of the Ozarks! He enjoyed country music, and an ice cold beverage. Dad always had a smile, a way to make you grin and want to scream at the same time. Dad was an early riser, always on time, hard worker, back breaker most days, he would give until he didn’t have anything left to give, he was a small man in stature only, some even called him shorty, but he was tough as steel and behind all that, a heart of gold full of love. He was uncle Ralphie to many, to a few he was a loving brother, a helping hand to others, but to me he was dad. He taught us a lot of things but, one of the most important things he taught me, was to be strong. You will always be missed.”
We love you, Dad
