He was such a family man, lived, worked, and loved with passion. A huge story teller when he was young, truth and fiction often married. Despite his rebel nature he was always kind to me. Not surprising he found religion along the way.
A talker myself, it was hard to get a word in edgewise when he was in the room! Much like me, he was a strong personality. You either liked him or not. There was no in between.
I remember his fiscal struggles as a young man with three little boys and a stay at home wife. A recent grandpa, he was finally enjoying the fruits of his labor when he was killed in a motorcycle accident July 2nd of this year.
Unlike me he had a loving partnership, with ten years until retirement. His wife will be pretty lost without him. My heart goes out to people who seemly have it all together in whatever obscure way they manage to make it work.Only to be blindsided by such a tragedy. You just never know when your time is up. He had loads of living left in him!
I recently wrote a draft about another fellow I have been thinking about for about two weeks now.... I can't help but wonder if I had an intuition about this guy and why I was writing about the other.... it's all so surreal to me.
Such a jovial guy, I have no doubt his family will miss him!! Rest in Peace buddy! Very hard to believe you're gone......life is fleeting...glad you lived well! Nice to have crossed your path along the way!
