He lived every day in joy for his family and especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was a family man, a true gentleman and a wonderful friend to many. As a father he was an incredible provider, and when his wife passed away he “picked up the ball she carried so gracefully and sprinted it” because he was determined to do his best to honor her. heritage. As a dad, he was selfless because he had the time and love to give equal and individual attention to each of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He lived for them, never said no to them and followed them each on their horse rides (as far as Florida), their plays and concerts, their baseball games, their gymnastics meets and their taekwondo events. Baseball was his game, and he cherished his grandsons’ youth travel team, “The Utica Hurricanes”. This group became family and he was humbled by the endearing nickname “Dad” given to him by the team, all the other grandparents, parents and children.
