My most recent memories of dad - spending time with dad on weekends where him, Jason, and I enjoyed occasional fishing, Watching Steelers games/ gun smoke , and going out to Denny’s restaurant. My favorite memory of dad - when we were little kids and he would come up to our room playing “been a long time since I rock and rolled” dancing and singing without a care in the world. He would come in music playing, air drums going , And jump around the room dancing until all 4 of us were laughing hysterically. My sweetest memories of dad were from when I took care of him after his last brain surgery, and waking up to holding his hand after mine. My oldest vivid memories of dad are of fishing on Celia drive. My most common memories of dad were talking to him each weekend I was down there about all of his friends and memories he had with them over year. Dad was happiest when he had his kids Jason, Anna, Diane and I around - and or friends around for extended periods of times. Planning these trips gave him so much to look forward to and is all he would talk about. Thank you for all the kind words you have shown our family, and friendship extended to my dad. I would be lying if I said I thought dad would have stuck around this long without his friends. You gave his life meaning, and he lived for you all. Thank you for being here and remembering my dad, Rachel Hormel
