“My dad was so strong, so smart, loving and kind; he had a heart bigger than anyone I’ve ever met. He enjoyed cooking for his family. It made him happy. He also enjoyed planting his garden. He was SO PROUD to be a dad and a pop! I miss him more that he’ll ever know and I’m proud to call him my best friend. I’ve always been daddy’s little girl; until Zoei came along and stole the show, she did no wrong in his eyes. He was so proud of his son in football and loved watching his Friday night games. He was so stubborn and had to have the last word always. He pushed me to be strong and independent. You couldn’t miss his loud mouth even if you wanted to. His smile could light up a room and his sense of humor was amazing. Our world will never be the same.”
