Dad was one of a kind. He was caring, loving and completely devoted to his family. He worked his entire life 70 plus hours a week to give his family the best and he never gave up in his fight. His spirit and attitude was an example to us all. It was just two years ago that he walked this [Chicago] very race as a survivor/fighter and then things took a turn for the worst. He is very much loved and missed. He was the best role model someone could ask for and he taught us all how to live life and how to be good people. He personally showed me how hard work always pays off and to never give up on a dream. We love him a lot!
He was an amazing Dad!
