I have some good memories of dad, like when he played hide and seek with us. We were little so he’d put us in drawers , hampers and up in closets. Mom had to find us. When I turned seven my dad had surprised me with a Schwinn bicycle just like the ones on captain kangaroo.
I was a few years older when dad and I were mashing potatoes for dinner. He was scraping the sides of The bowl with a spoon while the mixer was running, Something mom always said not to do. Yes he got it caught in the beaters. All he could say was” I did that didn’t I” mom was not happy.
He liked to go fast, he wanted to see what an engine would do, not only motorcycles . In my early thirties I got a 1987 Camaro Z28 . He used it to go get ice for the picnic. He must have drove to Pennsylvania for the ice. He was gone for a while the ice was in a puddle on the back floor board. I know he had to see what that 305 would do on the open road. I loved the smile on your face when I would come to visit through the years . Your last words to me was I love you too! As mine were to you.

I remember I musta been 15 at the time and Uncle Donny came to our house on Rt46 to visit my dad Butch. Well I wanted to go for a ride on his bike. Needless to say we went down Rt 46 to interstate 11 got off on Mahoning and were back at my house in less than 10 min. Felt like 10 seconds we were going sooooo fast. I will never forget that ride with my Uncle Donny. Im sure you are in heaven Uncle showing everyone how its done. RIP big guy you will be missed. Love you
❤️ Amen & Amen Don
