My dad passed away late last night.Posted: January 30, 2012 Filed under: Absent friends and loved ones | Tags: faith, family, heroes 11 Comments
I first mentioned him here.
He slipped away gently at about 11:30 pm. Mercifully.
I have never known a better man than my dad. If you ever met him, you would agree.
Godspeed, Dad, and I’ll see you on the other side.
I am so sorry for your loss and so happy you had a good dad who you loved. I have a good dad too and I’m going to lose him sooner then I want to. I’m just hoping he has mercy when he goes, but I know it is a terrible hurt to lose your dad and I wish it wasn’t so as at the same time I know there is no other way it should be,
So sorry for your loss, Scott. He sounds like an incredible man and an amazing father as well.
So sorry to hear of Bill’s passing, Scott. Please call if we can help in any way, we will see you at the funeral.
The world is, indeed, a lesser place without Wild Bill….god dammit.
Just heard the news. Mac our best wishes to your entire family. John S. had a good quote from your dad something to the tune of”fariy boat?they got their own damn navy?”

Thanks, Jim. My best to you and Kris and the girls.

Originally it was when we’d bought something second-rate, got hit with an unexpected expense, or “loaned” money to one of our deadbeat friends. But over time the advice got applied to investments of time, emotion, effort, or commitment. […]
[…] I posted about him here and here. […]
