Grandpa

The week before Christmas we received terrible news that Jonathan’s dad had passed away unexpectedly. ┬áBill was a great dad, and he loved his family. In Jonathan’s words: He was kind, gentle, patient, and inquisitive. He taught me to be curious about the world around me and how to take everything apart and figure out how it worked. He was always there for me. He held each of my three baby boys on the days they were born, and was a loving grandpa as they grew into little people. We’ll miss him dearly.
