RIP Grandpa English

I have sad news to share today. My Grandpa, my dad's dad passed away yesterday. He has been in poor health for almost as long as I can remember. But he is forever woven into my memories of my childhood.
One of my favorite pics of me and my grandpa.


He is a war vet from WWII. He was on the U.S.S. California when it was hit in Pearl Harbor. He retired from GM in Michigan. He did chartered fishing on Lake Huron and was a HUGE U of M fan. I remember him and my grandma having season tickets to U of M games and getting to attend a few with them. I remember spending time at their condo on Lake Huron during the summers. I always thought how cool it was that they lived literally like 50 steps from the lake.
He was an amazing man and I know will be missed by many. I know I will miss him like crazy and wish he could have seen my kiddos more than just with pictures. But with the distance, it made it difficult.

RIP Grandpa. I hope you are finally at peace.
