A Shout-Out To My Dad For Father’s Day

Seeing as Father’s Day is this Sunday, here’s a big shout-out to the best dad out there… my dad!

CSJ-Dad2My dad has always been my biggest supporter and fan, whether I was marching in the drumline in high school, graduating from UW-Eau Claire, or working on the air, on one of the five different stations for which I’ve been lucky enough to work during my career. (In fact, I’m fairly certain my dad might be Quick Country 96.5’s only listener over in Wausau, Wisconsin– about 3 hours northeast of here!)

To show you just how dedicated he is, when I was in elementary school, our annual Christmas program featured several fellow students who accompanied the rest of the class on piano. Well, we had an organ at our house (kind of like the one at Target Field), not a piano.

I, of course, knew how to play the organ, (well, kind of), not the piano.

So what did my dad do? He literally moved our organ from home, and brought it to the school so I could be a part of the program too. And, as you might guess, organs are kinda tough to move.

That’s just one story. I could go on and on and on, but you get the idea.

I’ve mentioned before how he served our country both in the Army, and as a police officer for over 30 years back home, and how I couldn’t be more proud of his service.

That’s true, of course, but that’s just a glimpse. These days, dad’s battling pancreatic cancer, and has been since last December. His overwhelmingly positive, even in the face of something like that, truly is an inspiration.

Happy Father’s Day, Dad. You really are the best!
