Dad always had a Polka beat in his heart. He had a passion for his violin and Polish music. He was in the Polkateer band and played for many weddings and dances.
He enjoyed betting the horses and playing Keno. He was known for his goofy humor, his smile, and his compassion. Dad was always there for us, whether he was fixing things for us or babysitting.
Dad never missed Mass and had a strong faith in God. We will miss him.
We love you, Dad!
