Let the memory of GERRY EISCHEN
{MY DAD} be with us forever
  • Born in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, California, United States.
  • Passed away on May 15, 2012 in Oregon, United States.

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, GERRY EISCHEN, . We will remember him forever. My dad is a wonderful father to his three children and a wonderful husband to his wonderful wife. My dad took people under his wing and treated them like family. He spent the last months preceeding  his final days  amongst the people he loved and adored . He told me everyday on the phone that he is the luckiest man in the world . Even fighting cancer  he kept a postitive attitude .His whole life he lived like that , positve ,loving ,living everyday to the fulliest. He just adored his sons hunting time and visits and of course he loved me his daughter and we loved and love him back everyday until we meet again. My dad grabbed my hand on his front driveway , the day was goregous the sun was shining and he said , Kari take these words and hold them tight ,"I am always with you no matter what Im right here ". I am so grateful he said that to me . I hold him in my heart everyday in everyway .

The boys and I will love you to the moon and back. You are the best dad ever .I feel so lucky to be blessed to have mom and you for parents .I hit the jackpot when the universe gave you and mom to me as parents along with the boys. Happy fathers day to my dear dear dad. Love you always and forever.
