I was so sorry to hear of your dad passing on. I had him as my Industrial Arts teacher in grade 7-12. He was an excellent teacher! Since I graduated, I have continued to use the skills and safety rules that he taught us. After 40 years of construction and building over 80 homes and countless remodeling projects, I've never been seriously injured on the job. Your dad was strict but always fair. He was years ahead in some of his thinking. He told us we needed to start recycling because our landfills were filling up. His teaching also impacted my four brothers. We occasionally quote something that your dad said.
Please accept our sympathy. Your dad was a good man and probably impacted my life the most of my teachers.
