Yeah, that’s my dad with the lock of hair down over his forehead, goofing around while fixing a car. His father on the left, his best friend on the right. What a pistol!
Today would have been his birthday. I’ve been writing about his last year, and it’s been kind of hard. It’s difficult to capture everything about him. He was a gregarious wit, well-liked, admired in our corner of Noble County, Indiana. Also, like most fathers, difficult to live with at times. It’s hard to get all that into a piece of writing.
Voted Cutest, Class of 1946. So much ahead of him at that point.
He only lived to be 62. Wow, that seems young now.
Still miss you, Dad, after all these years. You would love the grandkids and great grandkids. They’re amazing.
