Biography

Everyone needs a Papa in their life.
He took in 4 boys, raised 2 girls to appease his wife.
He started to smoke at 13 but wanted his lungs to be stronger.
He stopped so he could breath much better and live much longer.

He served in the Air Force, in various wars;
helped saved civilians lives, opening many doors.
Took part in getting the country to where it is today, the Land of the Free.
His favorite singer, Frank Sinatra would be very proud and say "Come Fly with Me".

He went to the track and picked up a racing form.
He loved betting on horses, it was his norm.
He made sure everyone was taken care of, no doubt.
He made sure they were happy, and well-fed, eating burgers at In-N-Out.

He left a positive impact on us all.
He was distinguished by his humor, and how he was so tall.
He always lit up the room when we saw him.
He made everyday situations seem much more exciting and much less grim.

He was complacent about a lot of things.
God knows it was because of the compassion he brings.
He was introverted, and didn't like to stir the pot.
Some might say that is not enough, but in reality, Papa sacrificed a lot.

What I learned is everyone needs a Papa in their life.
He took in 4 boys, raised 2 girls to appease his wife.
