  8. Dad,

    We had many great times together while I was growing up. We went fishing, went hunting, drag races and can’t forget the yearly car shows when we would stop and grab those 3 hotdog deals and I would always spill mustard on my pants or shirts and you would laugh and call me Pepes. I will always remember our diced Pontillos pizza nights watching “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly” and the memories of working on cars with you. You were the one who sparked my interest in fixing cars. I learned from the best.

    You will always be with me and your grandchildren. Love you Dad, I miss you so much. Rest Peaceful and with No Pain.

  9. Dad loved to mangia, his love for cars will never be forgotten. We talked about guns and hunting all the time.. I’m gonna miss the car shows with pops.. we went out to eat with family every week. We’re all gonna miss you so much. You will be forever in our hearts forever. Love you papa
