With a deep love and respect for my dad battling cancer, God called him home at 4:16 this morning (October 15, 2020) to be with him in heaven. 14 days before his 77th birthday. He lived a full and complete life. A man of God with three children, two grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and an uncle and brother, he was loved by all. He spent 35 years with CDF/CAL FIRE, did a tour in Vietnam in ’65, and worked at Piner Ambulance part-time as an EMT. He served countless others throughout his life. His spirit is now free, no longer bed-bound, he can look down upon us all. Rest easy in paradise, dad. Love you father, you have all my honor and respect, you were a good man!
