My dad was a really smart, active, honest, and loving guy. He had a huge heart and would help anyone and everyone. He was constantly joking around and messing with people just to get them to laugh. He was strong and independent and he was my rock. He was there for me anytime of the day if I needed him. This has all been very unexpected. He was taken to the hospital in February because of bronchitis and was told he needed heart surgery. We had waited a couple months and he finally went in for surgery May 23rd. There were a few complications during surgery that they thought they had under control. He made it through surgery and was slowly progressing. But on Saturday May 26th we had to let my dad go. It has been very shocking and unreal. He was so loved and will be missed by so many. I hate to ask for help but we need help paying for all of the funerary services and for the celebration of life we are planning. Anything helps, even just sharing this gofundme..
