My father was an Air Force vet who worked civil service most his life. He was the best at what he did & would often get sent TDY to investigate plane crashes or fix stuff no one else could. Later in his life he became a professor & taught what he loved most. I was happy for my dad when he entered this chapter of his life & I wish he could have enjoyed that time longer. It always fascinated me so much how my dad could hear a plane or see one over us & tell me what kind of plane it was & what it was used for.
My dad was diagnosed with covid towards the end of July & days after was admitted. He was transferred & moved around countless times & had multiple procedures. At the beginning of October he finally tested negative so he was allowed one visitor per day. After so many scares & doctors preparing us for the worst outcome we thought this was it & we were finally, after months on the other side of this virus. I’m sad to say that I along with 3 of my brothers, his wife & a room full of his closest loved ones held my father while he took his last breath on Tuesday(10/27) after we made the difficult decision to do comfort care & take him off medication & the ventilator. My dads physical absence leaves behind the biggest void, but his memory will live on. I pray no one else has to experience & suffer the heartbreak we have had endure. God bless.

  1. My deepest condolences Kimberly. I have so many memories of your Dad when I was growing up. My twin sister and I had spent many sleepovers @ Mrs Sifuentes’ and he and his friends would always try to scare us and usually succeeded. I pray for you and your extended family. May he Rest in Peace and may the peteural light shine upon him always.
