My eulogy to my papa ❤️ Miss you grandpa. My grandpa passed away tonight. 10/15/22 I want to pass on the legacy of him that will be living in my heart for the rest of my life. My grandpa was a marine in the Korean War, but it’s not something he talked about much. Most of what he shared with me was when he was a recruiter before he was deployed. He told me he saw my grandma across the street one time to get food so he packed up early and asked her on a date. Two weeks later they were married February 7 (because he got deployed before Valentines Day.) They were together until the moment my grandma passed and now they are together again. He was 93. This man was the jack of all trades. Whenever he’d talk about his life when he was younger, it seemed like he always had a different job, all while being able to ride across the country on his custom Harley Davidson with my grandma. It is hard to piece together the timeline of someone who seemed to live their life so grand. He even worked at a toy factory at one point. My grandpa never took life too seriously. He would DEFINITELY be the old man that talked to you in the grocery store regardless of your body language just to crack a joke and get a smile out of you. He was a warrior. He had issues with his feet because they got frozen when he was in Korea. But he continued to always walk until he literally couldn’t anymore. We weren’t sure realistically how long he’d be around after my grandma died in 2015. He sure blew us out of the water. He wanted to be around for when Garrett and I graduated college. Well, he got through two bachelors degrees and two masters degrees and even lived almost a year longer. I’m a lucky one to have gotten to grow up living with my grandparents. When I was young, I didn’t realize this luxury. My grandpa used to twiddle his thumbs. Whenever he was waiting for something, or just sitting and thinking to himself. It was something that I always have been curious about but also admired. He could just sit and twiddle his thumbs and be content. I always wondered what he was thinking about. My grandpa LOVED to go out to eat, and go for “rides” in the car. Whether he was driving or someone else, he loved to see how Hillsboro had changed and he loved to explore the backroads. He is credited as one of the people who taught me how to drive. He stopped me from almost hitting a Maserati once. Thank god! My grandpa was stubborn. He would always tease my grandma about wanting Portuguese blood sausage and French bread. Something that was not super attainable where we lived, but something he always wanted. My grandpa went out of his way to make the yard look like how my grandma wanted it to and filled it with things she loved. He worked outside until he quite literally couldn’t anymore. My grandpa, although he was missing teeth had the most contagious smile and laugh. My grandpa had the coolest cursive handwriting I have ever seen. He even helped me come up with my own signature. If my grandpa could talk to you all, he would tell you not to live life so seriously. Go for a ride, talk to a stranger, crack a joke, laugh at yourself when you make a mistake, if you’re not happy in your work;do something else. He would tell you life is too short, and to spend as much time with your loved ones as you can. I love my grandpa ❤️ & I hope that you will let a little bit of him live through you
