There are endless words to describe this incredible man. Strong. Determined. Astonishing willful. Smart and witty, he could give anyone a run for their money. He was a born renegade, from living life by the sea in Alaska, riding motorcycles with a club in California, or rocking out in a Vietnamese rock band, he had a light and a spirit that was contagious to anyone that encountered him. But, alongside that silly grin of his, he’d tell anyone that his adventures were halted by his 5 “headache” children. This devout father worked endlessly to provide for anyone he cared for. He lived for his family, and continued to show his enduring strength as he fought so hard to stay by their side, surgery after surgery, hospital after hospital, shocking doctor after doctor with his perseverance. Our hearts ache and no words can describe how profoundly he will be missed. But in the end, God needed him more, and we can only find solace in the fact that you are rejoicing with our mommy and yours, in Heaven. We love you Daddy, thank you for everything we have, and everything we are, we owe it explicitly to you.
He was adored and will be missed by his children, family and is rejoicing with his mommy and dad and our mother.
