In our hearts, his memory and love will always be.

I miss my dad. We all do. This has been a great way to share his life and cherish each memory.

Leave a TRIBUTE below (a few personal words, about dad...or for mom and us kids)

OR...if you would like to add more content, please consider sharing your memory about dad in STORIES. It is something we would all cherish.

The songs playing in the background are some of dad's favorites, with the exception of one song, Wind Beneath My Wings, which is my song to dad.

"Browsing through the pictures today. Saw the one of the condo in Phoenix with the picture of Pinnacle Peak on the wall. Have completed the unfinished business mentioned in the previous tribute. His ashes were spread at Cave Creek Golf Club. Judy, Ryan and I then hiked up Pinnacle Peak and spread the rest of his ashes. I too miss him. I'm not much of a drinker but I think that today I may have a rye and water in his memory. He will always be in my heart."
