Our dad loved helping people as much as he could. It brought him joy. He was always there for anyone that needed him. He could light up the room with his smile and fun personality. He was a character and loved making people laugh. Even when things were really tough, he wanted to create a better life for his daughters. He was so strong and refused to give up, even through all of his health issues. He loved cooking, reading books, spending time with family and loved ones and playing games with his family. His dog Buddy was his best friend and he always had him by his side. He was a spiritual man and believed the good we put out in the universe comes back to us. Family was so important to him. We are devastated to lose him so suddenly. He will always be in our hearts and on our minds. The world will not be the same without him here.
