Sad news from Morbius

31 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

My Dad passed away last night at midnight after a long battle with lung, heart and kidney problems at 86 1/2 yrs. He's the one who got me onto the 'bots way back when, always there to play with the kids, war vet, worked 3 jobs and never ever complained about anything and would do anything for anyone. He'll still be with my brother and I and the family always. He's the one on the far right. My bow-tied brother is the train guy with a two bedroom apartment wall-to-wall, still has that old train and a few dozen others. Dad really taught us to have fun and he's finally at rest. Makes us realize what's really important.

Very Sorry. It's awful losing a great dad, even when it's their time. Mine died at 79 six years ago. I think of him every day. Give yourself time to feel miserable. It may take a while.

Sorry to hear Mike. Sounds like a great guy and you have a lot of fond memories to remember him by. As the family genealogist, I love the pictures too! Take care.

Thankyou to all for your thoughts. Yes, he loved the latest toys, made sure out of 8-10 items on our Xmas list we received maybe 5 or 6. He had to have the latest of stuff of the era, no old stuff stuck around long whether it be his '63 Chevy II which he let me drive in parking lots or the countryside at the east coast (Moncton N.B.) from 12 years old to the latest in clothes. I think the only time I heard him complain is when our driveway was blocked one evening when we got home.

Appreciate the thoughts from all of you, it really helps.
