  • My dad was a great dad. He always made sure that Foster,Deborah and myself were always taking care of. My dad worked very hard along with his book and his garden, He loved his rose garden and his boat,
    I always worked with him doing ysrd work and his 57 chevy truck.I remember him building his Indian motocycle and it was beatiful when he finished with it.
    My dad risked his own life to save us kids during the 1971 earthquake and I will always remember that.
    Rest in peace dad and I love you.
