This morning, at the age of 77, my father went to be with the Lord. It was very sudden, he was a fit and active man, and he went as he always wished, suddenly and without warning or suffering.
I thank the Lord our God for his life, for the privilege to be the son of such a man. His steadfastness, work ethic and integrity was overshadowed only by his love for his God and his family. He was always a pillar of strength in our family, and there was many a time that I needed his words of wisdom, his encouragement or his reprimands. He was a loving, kind and gentle husband and father.
One can truly say of him: “Hear, O sons, a father’s instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain insight..”
He has left an indelible legacy in the world through his family and work, and he will be sorely missed.
Please pray for my family as we mourn a great husband, father and grandfather.
