We would love it if you would share your stories or memories about our dad.
My dad was an amazing man who loved life and loved everyone he shared it with. He was there for me through the hardest times of my life and the best times, and he taught me so much. I will always cherish the memories of our back to school shopping sprees and awesome bike rides as a kid, the long letters he used to write to me trying to get me on the right path as a teenager, and the sunset talks on the back patio about business and life as an adult. I learned so much from him, and so much of who I am is because of him. In recent years, his focus in life shifted to my kids, and he was absolutely in love with them. I'm so grateful that he got to spend so much time with them over the years, going to Disney World, water parks, bounce houses, wakeboarding, indoor skydiving, museums, and whatever other fun experience he wanted to give them. As his body started to give out, he couldn't do as much, but he still tried to spend as much time with them as he could. He loved them, he loved my sister and me, he loved my husband and his family, and he loved his friends. I miss him so much and would give anything for one more conversation with him, to watch one more OU game, to get one more inappropriate (but funny) email. There will be a void in my life that I'm not going to be able to fill, but I will honor his memory in every way that I can. I love you, daddy.
