A Memory of My Dad

My dad, a radio announcer and sportscaster by trade, passed away when I was 19 years old. The more years go by, the more I get the feeling that my knowledge of him as a person was limited by the fact that I was his child and I was so young when he died. I recently reached out to a friend of his, a coworker at one of the radio stations my dad did news for. He posted the following on his blog and sent it to me via email. It probably won’t be interesting to many people who read this blog, but to me it was so nice to get to see a part of my dad that I had never known.
