He was my father. I remember the date of death very well. I was twelve years old. My oldest sister, Bonnie, was sixteen, my sister, Janet, was fourteen and my brother, Mark, was eight. We continue to miss my Dad 47 years later. He was a good and humorous man. He had many friends and people still stop me to talk about him today although many friend are now dead.
