One thing that stood out when it came to my Father...he loved being a grandpa, he absolutely adored his grandkids. Spending time with them was one of his favourite activities. From watching them play sports, partaking in plays, learning of new technologies they knew about that he didnt quite understand, to simply taking them out for a good meal. His eyes lit up every time one of them walked in a room. He was so proud of each and every one of them.

He loved to tell the story of when he took Riley to Phil's Restaurant for lunch (Riley was around age 5 or 6), what Riley had ordered, I can't recall but it involved ketchup which inevitably ended up on Riley's shirt...when that ketchup squirted onto his shirt, Riley proceeded to grab his chest dramatically and shouted out "Tell my wife I love her!!" and flopped onto the table. Riley gave 'gramps' an afternoon and a story of a lifetime. It was these kind of things he held so dear. It's these kind of things WE hold so dear.
