We Will Always Love You Dad "Pops"

Most of you who know me know i am to prideful to usually ask for help but this isn't about me, this is about the man who worked three jobs and still made sure i turned out a nice young man. This is about giving my dad what he deserves. I owe everything to this guy; he wasnt only my father but my bestfriend and i don't know how any of us will continue without him.


        I only ask for help with this because my dad deserves a beautiful headstone and casket which are a sin for how much they cost, even basics are ridiculous priced. I will be in charge of the funds to make sure that he has the funeral that HE would of wanted. The funeral is on track to be on tuesday and i know it's a big goal in a short ammount of time but no ammount can sum up the beauty he deserves in his final resting place.


          My dad has served his country as a veteran, he has served our constitution by being a deputy Sheriff, he has saved lives, protected them and then even after he got sick you could not make him focus on himself, he only  wanted help everyone  out and to feel the respect, love, and happiness from them.
       
     My father deserves Justice. No one should know what it is to be ran down in the street and left. He was to good a man to be taken from us. My Dad was the most kind hearted guy you would ever meet , I don't put this lightly when I say if it'd brighten up your day then he would make sure he would get it done for you.

    Thank you dad for teaching us selflessness, compassion, and integrity. I can only hope I grow into half the man you were. I Love You and will never forget anything you've taught us.



My Father loved to fish, by far his favorite thing to do, and we would spend days fishing together I will really miss that.


My dad refuses to take no for an answer if he wants to help you let him, hardest worker i've ever known.


Here he is "playing" in the yard. I don't know if it was the yard work he loved so much or just the smile on your face he would give you by being selfless when no one is watching.


My Dad was a character, but he was the best character you'd ever meet.


Doesn't look a day over 40 :)


Spending time with his brother was always something my dad looked forward too, he might've been a little caught off guard in this photo but i can assure you he was smiling on the inside.


See he just can't help but smile , even in a photo he was moving in you can see just how big his smile was.


Dad may look serious in this photo but he was actually a softie on the inside.


In our family as long as an oklahoma team wins we are happy. (Even though dad loved his cowboys.)


We took dad to the zoo once to feed the bird and pet the stingrays and i can honestly say he had the best time.



      I have MANY more beautiful photos of my amazing father but if i put everyone he looked great in we would be here for years.
