Daddy… October 27 – Part 1

Daddy… October 27 – Part 1

Today my father, Wally Anton, would have turned 93. Daddy passed away on June 6, 2002, D-Day. He was 77. It was too soon but we were all so grateful to have had him for all those years. My Dad survived two wars, WWII and Korea. He served with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department until he retired. He was a man of great integrity, kindness, humor and love. Love for his wife, Lou Ellen, his children, Greg, Susie, Brent, Peggy and Todd and his many grandchildren. Love for his community and love for his country. He also LOVED the DODGERS!!! So here we are, it’s fall and his BOYS IN BLUE are once again in the World Series. I know he is smiling down with that twinkle in his clear blue eyes. He is watching the games with his sweetheart, our Mom and they have the best seats to all the games. It makes me smile and warms my heart. My Daddy was the hardest working man I ever knew. He always had more than one job and if a neighbor or a stranger needed help he was the first one there to assist. He was an affectionate man and showed my brothers that it was okay for a man to cry, hug another man and say, “I love you”. He was humble about his own accomplishments but eager to share with anyone how proud he was of his beautiful wife and family.

Daddy… October 27 – Part 2

He treated women with respect and appreciation. We saw it every day in the big and small ways he loved our Mama. They had a beautiful 55-year love affair. I can still see them holding hands as they walked through the years together. When it was time for Mom to be with the Lord all of us children were with her. She looked up at us and said, “I’m tired, I want to see Daddy”. She closed her sweet eyes and like a rocket she was free to be with the only man she ever loved. I know he was there, arms wide open, big beautiful smile on his precious face as he welcomed her home and said what he had said every day when he would come home to greet her, “Does the most beautiful girl in the world live here”? We need more men like my father in this world. I love you Daddy. Thank you for being the BEST Dad any kid could ever hope for. Thank you for your patience, understanding and unconditional love all the days of my life. Happy Birthday. I’ll see you down the road XOXO

Now, let’s win this World Series!!!

Love
