    I am so sorry. I worked with your Dad for the past 4+ years. What an absolute pleasure it was. He was always so positive! If I needed help with anything, your dad was always right there. I will miss him.

    We were shocked and saddened to hear of your dad’s passing. Your dad was an integral part of the SWU Raiders soccer family and he will be dearly missed. Your dad was extremely proud of both you and Jennifer and he wanted nothing but the best for both of you.
    Chris, our thoughts are with you, your sister and your family at this very difficult time. Please accept our sincerest condolences.

    Jennifer and Chris,

    We are so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. He will be remembered by us not only for his sense of humor at soccer games but also for his volunteering at every game to run the lines. Even on the days he thought he might get to just watch the game, he found himself drawn into the role. I am grateful that we had the opportunity to meet him and we hope you will remember him fondly.
