My Dad - 1948-2017

Frank. What a guy. A man's man, as my godfather put it. SF - 5th Group in Vietnam his first tour. Signed up for a second tour, but met my mom on his leave home. Knocked her up. Ended up a door gunner in the 1st Cav for the second tour. Not sure that was a blessing.

Loud noises were never good. Any time he was working with power tools in his basement workshop you had to turn the lights on and off before entering so he knew not to take you down because you snuck up on him like a "dickhead." I remember him, a 5'8" little badass taking down a 6'5" burglar that broke into our neighbor's garage like it was nothing. Likely due to the fact that he was 2-time city wrestling champion in his younger years.

Alcoholic my first 3 and some change years on this planet. I remember the not-so-great days and how Mom wasn't having it. He said "fuck that" and never drank again. Ever.

Always there. No matter what, you involved yourself in our lives. You were my best pal, my mentor, my teacher, my coach. I used to hate the fact you were my coach sometimes. But deep down I knew the other kids didn't have that luxury. "Eye on the ball. Eye On The Ball. EYE ON THE BALL." I'll never forget. I can't promise I'll always follow through. I'm retarded.

We're all still in shock. We'll suck it up and drive on, though. Love you.

Thanks, everyone. I'm pretty sure our family has processed this and carried on. I'm not so sure about me, my sister, and, most importantly, my mom, though. He would have been 70 this Feb. That's all he wanted was to make it to 70. Something the men in our family can't seem to do. He also wanted to celebrate 50 years with my mom. Both of which would have happened this year. God damn cancer.

I feel for you, your sister and your mother. I hope that your family becomes closer and stronger in the wake of your loss. It's always a loss to the entire nation when one of our finest passes away. For you, the loss is so much more because I can tell he was a good father by the feelings you have for him.

Condolences for you and the family, Blue. He sounds like a great guy. You were fortunate to have a cool Dad like that.

My condolences here to the comrades. I too lost many people and a father (cancer), throughout the years. But fuck it. People die. We will too one day. All we can do is honor their memories and keep them alive in our hearts. There is no other choice...but that and to move on and live for them.
