There are few words that adequately describe my father.  Kind, gentle, sincere, devoted, caring, loving, hardworking, honest, are all words that begin to, but do not completely, describe him.  I know everybody will have at least one great memory, if not one hundred, of dad.  A wise man once told me that you can be a pebble or a boulder tossed into the lake of life.  The pebble will make small ripples that may not even reach the shore, but how great would it be to be that boulder that made waves touching everything?  Dad was that boulder and then some.  When I was a kid, people would ask “what do you want to be when you grow up?”.  First, I wanted to be a country singer, then a cowboy.  I am sure somewhere along the way I wanted to be President or a secret agent.  Ask me now what I want to be and my answer is a little different.  I want to be a man that everyone will look up to, full of wisdom and common sense, respected and loved by everyone.  To put it simply, I want to be just like my Dad.

Edwin A. Pendergrast, 67, of Lawson, MO, passed away July 26, 2015.
