My daddy was a great man with a big heart. He was very generous, loving and definitely a family man. He was also a force to be reckoned with when he was angry or didn't have his way. My dad had the biggest heart I've ever known, he could make anyone who was having a bad day smile. He was a great listener too, sometimes too good of a listener. He was an amazing guy to have as our dad, a best friend and a shoulder to cry on. He was always there for us whether we needed him or not. He always knew what to say when we were sad and down, he never gave up on us even when we were bad. He did some crazy questionable things growing up, but that's who our daddy was. We've always been able to call on him any time of day especially 4:20. My dad would do absolutely anything for his family, even if it meant giving away his last bite of Mac N Cheese. He was also a bargaining man; he would try and talk anybody down on price, even if it was $5 dollars. He was the best to be around. We all had a great bond with our dad, but I'm pretty sure his Chihuahuas took our place. The love he had for them was unexplainable. He would check on them every five minutes to make sure none of them escaped the yard. Any food that he had became their food; he spoiled them with fancy collars and clothes. He loved his doggies so very much. He was also very proud to be a Grandpi. He loved his Grandbabies so much. He was very good at math, you could ask him any question that has to do with math and he would have the answer for you faster than you could pull out your phone for the calculator. He was also the best cook ever! He taught us how to cook and he was also our harshest critic. He was the biggest raiders fan too. No matter how bad the raiders were, he still had their back. His whole house was full of Raider memorabilia. My dad was a great man. I feared for this day, I never wanted it to come. But here it is. He is free and no longer in pain. No longer fighting the tough battle he fought for so long. We miss him so much and I know he misses us all too. Now, it's time to send you up with the rest of our family of angels, daddy. I love you daddy. Rest In Paradise.
