Daughter Margo is grateful for her father’s steady presence over many decades.
“He’s given us so much,” said Margo. “You can always count on him. We had heavy discipline growing up, and that was important. He also taught us that education was important. All three of us went to college.”
The family has continued that emphasis on education by starting a scholarship fund in their father’s name for black students who go to college.
Margo is constantly surprised at how self sufficient her father remains.
“A neighbor came to the door the other day with sweet rolls,” Margo said. “She said, `These are for your dad; he shoveled my sidewalk.’”
