In Loving Memory

With a very heavy heart I write this blog.

This morning around 1 a.m. my Dad passed away at the age of 56, after a ten week long fight against lung cancer. He was surrounded by his family.

Born February 18th, 1956 in Albert Lea, Minnesota.

At the age of 17 he enlisted in the Army National Guard where he would spend the next 30 years as a member of the Reserves.

In 1997, through a radio station in Minnesota he met my Mom and they knew immediately that they were meant for each other. In May of 1999 they were married near Fort Snelling in Bloomington, Minnesota.

In 2004 he completed a 6 month Tour of Duty in Kosovo. During this time he was able to help keep the peace and even had a chance to visit Germany and some of the surrounding countries. He felt fortunate enough to finally have a chance to do something for the Country and the Army that he loved.

In 2008 he moved, with my mom, to Arizona and began a two year long adventure as an over the road truck driver. He loved to be on the road, traveling from town to town and state to state. He never got to see much, but that didn't bother him, he was just happy to be doing something that he had always wanted to do.

He was diagnosed with Stage 3, small cell lung cancer on August 30, 2012.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brother.

He is survived by his Wife, his daughter, his two sons, and two wonderful grandchildren.

Rest in Peace Dad, you are loved, will forever be loved and missed.
