Herbert Aldous, my Dad, my inspiration and my hero – With Video Tribute

My dad was much more than what you read below. His life was not easy. Losing his right leg in the Korean War presented many challenges for himself and my Mom. He lived with constant pain, but this did not stop him from having a career, family and many hobbies.

My relationship with my Dad was a special one. I was the youngest of the family. I grew up knowing my Dad at a time in his life when he was building his successful career, traveling for work and volunteering his time. He was able to retire when I was in High School. I once asked him during the early years of retirement what it was like to be in Florida in the Winter, retired with Mom and new friends. He told me it was like the first day of summer vacation … Every day.

He loved life and I will miss him.

Here is a video tribute that my Brother-In-Law created to celebrate my dad’s life.
