My Opa was a man of integrity and a true gentleman. Opa knew who he was, what he stood for, and what he was willing to fight for. To be a gentleman is to know the world around you and the people that exist within it. Opa exhibited a deep felt respect for the thoughts of others. He could embrace the comeliness of humanity, and was able to find the good in all those around him. He committed to bringing out the best in those who knew him. He loved much and was loved by many.
Robert. Edward Lee's 'Definition of a Gentleman' describes Jaime M. Goad best:
"The forbearing use of power does not only form a touchstone, but the manner in which an individual enjoys certain advantages over others is a test of a true gentleman.
The power which the strong have over the weak, the employer over the employed, the educated over the unlettered, the experienced over the confiding, even the clever over the silly--the forbearing or inoffensive use of all this power or authority, or a total abstinence from it when the case admits it, will show the gentleman in a plain light
The gentleman does not needlessly and unnecessarily remind an offender of a wrong he may have committed against him. He cannot only forgive, he can forget; and he strives for that nobleness of self and mildness of character which impart sufficient strength to let the past be but the past. A true man of honor feels humbled himself when he cannot help humbling others."

He was the perfect dad to me throughout my life. We hunted and fished together constantly and made innumerable memories to cherish forever. He was the best hugger in the world and shared his love daily. Most importantly, he was the greatest Christian man I ever knew.
Forever I'll love and miss you, Dad.
