After a yearlong battle with acute myeloid leukemia he went to be with our lord and savior on his own wishes.
What a fighter my dad was… at original diagnosis his doctor said without treatment you have a month. With treatment you won’t last very long without a transplant. He was ultimately not a candidate for transplant but when I say my dad kicked cancers ass, I mean HE KICKED CANCERS ASS!! This last year was the toughest journey he’s ever been through and we were right there along with him for every step. Less than 5% of AML patients make it a year passed diagnosis & man, dad said eff that statistic and made it just over a year. He was here to prove everyone wrong along the way.
Dad wasn’t your typical “old man” his mind was as young as ever and he was just as quick witted as always. I will never forget the many laughs we shared picking on my mom, the dogs, Mack, and of course Ryder. I knew my dad had a LOT of love in his heart but once he met Ryder it truly showed. I like to think Ryder really helped him live this last year to the fullest. If you ever met my father, I know you won’t forget him. This man would give you the shirt off his back even if it was the last thing he had. He may have done some questionable things when he was young but who doesn’t go through the “young & dumb” phase? The important thing was he pulled out of it.
He never questioned anything I did, he was just there to support and cheer me on in true father fashion. He always did anything I asked and tried his hardest to make sure I got what I wanted… he was a stay-at-home dad for most of my life and in the last few years we were closer than ever. It warms my heart to know he is fulfilled and no longer suffering, although I may be sad here on earth without him, I am at peace knowing he’s always going to be watching over my little family.
Dad, you will never be forgotten and will forever live on with us. We love you so much.
