Tall, dark and handsome
Strong, clever and witty
Hardworking, short tempered (at times) and the disciplinarian of our world
Achiever of great things both personally and professionally
The veritable pillar of strength in our household
Creative, talented, genius mind
Introducing us to the joys of music and fine arts
Teaching us to appreciate cuisines and cultures
The man who offered me my first taste of wine
The man who taught me to hammer a nail, change a light bulb and wire a plug
He instilled in us the value of time, the need to be prepared for any situation, the need to be organized in our thoughts and actions.
He taught us to be independent
He encouraged us to be unreserved.
He bought me my first scooter he insisted we learn to drive
Guided us in our careers paths never once suggesting we stick to the ordinary in our choices
Gave us away at our weddings with pride
Even today he celebrates the smallest of our achievements with dollops of happiness.
Indulgent granddad loved by all.
A man to whom ideally many a modern day invention should prove challenging, he is an IT whizz, active on social media, constantly learning, teaching himself, reading and discovering modern technology.
My go to man for all questions tech related.
Happily plays along when we jibe him
Unable to keep track of any gossip (;-)), unable to still differentiate between our voices at times.
Loving and loyal husband a great role model to many who know him
My Dad….my hero.
