Dad believed that everybody deserved a chance to do right. Not having my father around I had to learn alot from others, but I’ve taken the lessons that I learned during my short time with my father and applied them to being a father myself. Through teaching me how to play baseball I learned the importance of spending time with my family. I’m honored to have named my son Leo after my father and try to live by his example every day. I remember the little things, like him giving all the neighborhood kids rides on his police motorcycle in our front yard. These are memories I cherish.
