April 2, 1952 - April 9th, 2008
my dad was funny and nerdy and sensitive. he was the world's most frequent "pun" maker. he loved hockey and hunting and camping. he was stubborn and often kept things to himself. he was outgoing and friendly and embarrassing. (the whole time we were in ireland on a family vacation he insisted on speaking in an irish accent! there was no doubt in anyone's mind that we were tourists.) my dad loved to argue and challenge. he loved movies and music. his favorite dvd was The Last Waltz. he and i didn't always know how to communicate, we had our ups and downs, but i love him and will miss him very much.
