Many of my friends who read this blog already know that my father passed away on January 13. He was 86 years old and had been battling failing health.
I am preparing to fly out to L.A. in the morning for his military burial on Feb. 6th.
As anyone who reads this blog knows, I can chatter on a great deal on most any subject but writing his eulogy has been a challenge. I am still not done.
I have also been in the process of putting together a slide show presentation of family pics. When I have been to other funerals, I always enjoyed these pic collages a lot.
Every picture tells a story…don’t it?
In my Dad’s honor, enjoy a few choice vintage family pics!
There are also some great military shots from an earlier blog post I did here:
My siblings and I with my Pop. Never pose with a beer.
No booze here. Josh is now 24! Check the leather pants.
My Dad and my surviving brother Bruce. His twin brother Brian passed from cancer several years ago. Hopefully, he and my Dad are having a chuckle right now.
My Dad and my siblings before I came along.

Here is my Dad's obituary from the Orange County Register:
