I recently lost the the person who inspired me to become the man I am today. My Dad was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in mid January and only could only hang on until mid March. What a horrible disease. We never saw it coming.
It was his pictures and stories from his time in the Army during the Vietnam era that made me enlist and finally retire after 22 years and then follow in his footsteps as an elevator and escalator mechanic.
Over the last few years, I bought a small 18 acre farm about 3 miles from him and my first Ford Naa. He was so impressed by the old girl, that he went and bought one of his own. After a while, we were buying all we came across. We have 9 different models combined. Although he was never on this site, he would ask me to look up certain things and repair tips. You all have helped us fix and keep them running and he appreciated all of your knowledge.
Thank you all...

Very nice tribute to your Dad. Did you ever tell him
how you felt about him? Im sure, from your note
that he was equally proud of you too.

Very nice tribute to him. My wife lost her dad a little over a year ago, and she still misses him. She was an only child and they were best buds. Those of us with kids can only hope that our kids feel about us the way you do about your dad. Sounds like a great guy.
