My dad was such a spark of joy he loved everyone dearly , he would give someone the shirt off his back or his last penny, he was such an amazing man I can’t even put it into words he loved cooking , being a construction worker, his dogs, nascar races, horse races,complaining about how bad the Lions football team was but still being there #1 fan and watching every game, an ice cold Pabst blue ribbon, singing and doing the most craziest things Just to see people laugh, but most of all he loved supporting me and helping me achieve my goals, anything I ever put my mind to he was there to support me the whole way even if he was sick he was there and he was definitely the loudest person in the gym or on the fence, he wanted everyone to know he was there. I’m going to miss him dearly, life will never ever be the same without him, im so glad I got to spend 15 amazing years with him and make millions of unforgettable memories. I had the best times of my life with him and even tho I miss him it helps me know that he’s not in pain anymore, my dad was a very strong man but he was in a lot of pain, he never wanted to show it and hated asking for help . He never deserved any of the pain or stress he ever went thru but he always pushed thru and did whatever needed to be done. I think I’ll miss him most in sports not hearing him cheering for me. Even if he was hard on me, it helped me learn how to fight for anything and everything I ever wanted and how to be tough. I thank him for so much but most importantly that. I know he wanted nothing but the best for me and I know he wouldn’t want me to be sad, he hated seeing me cry, so I’m using him as my motivation and I’m going to become someone great and make him the proudest he’s ever been. I hope your up there smiling down at us celebrating your life today, you were a good man , friend and most of all an amazing dad never forget that. You never let me go without something I needed or definitely wanted you spoiled me rotten. I hope your up there pain free , feeling the best you ever have with everyone you’ve been missing for years, I hope your having the biggest party ever, making everyone your amazing food and I hope you hear me talk to you everyday. I love you so much and I’ll miss you everyday Just know ill see you one day and it’s gonna be amazing but until then I’m gonna live everyday like it’s my last with no regrets like you always did, your my biggest role model and you never let me down you taught me so many amazing things, you made me open my eyes and see the real word. Thank you forever everything dad i love you like no other. Rest In Peace to the greatest man in my life, I wish I could have one more hug and say i love you and hear it back but ik you’ll always be with me . Rest easy up there and enjoy the show I’ll make it good ❤️
