83 years ago, my Dad was born – he was the oldest child in his family.
He spent his entire career at one company – Columbia Gas of Ohio, retiring after 47 years.
He married my Mom in 1950, and they celebrated 60 anniversaries together.
He was the father of 6 children,
including me – the baby of the family.
Over the years, he enjoyed many hobbies, including camping,
bowling and golf,
He was grandfather to 12 grandkids, and great-grandpa, too.
We would typically spend this weekend at the lake, celebrating with Dad and chocolate cake.
Dad is enjoying his chocolate cake in heaven this year, but he’s still in our thoughts. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD!
