Cause of Death: Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
My Dad died when I was 2 years old. I don't remember him. All I have are pictures and stories about him. If it weren't for my paternal grandparents, I wouldn't have many stories or know much about my Dad. The big question has always remained: was his death suicide or accidental? I have always received conflicting stories (even though the coroner ruled his death accidental). My mother told me once my dad killed himself because of me. Regardless of how or why he died, he is still my Dad. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him. I always have and always will have a sense of loss because I never had the opportunity to truly get to know my Dad. I think of him every single day.. My dad will never be forgotten and will be loved always.

Thank you to everyone who has left kind words on this Find a Grave Memorial for my Dad. I read each one of them and appreciate the time you take to express your sentiments.

Oh how my heart breaks at the cruel words your mother spoke to you in telling you your father committed suicide because of you. How would that be even possible as you were but a toddler? Usually guilt precipitates this type of meanness so look at it that ...(Read more)|

Dad, I'm a day late posting, but still thought of you all day yesterday. It's been 40 long years. There's so much that's happened I wish you could've been here for. I think of you every day. Always in my heart no matter how time goes by.|
