Happy Fathers Day, A look back at my Father

Many of you already know that my Father passed away on my birthday Nov 1st in 2009. I wanted to share a couple of photos with you today in honor of Fathers day.

This photo on the left is of the two of us in 1995. Unfortunately I don’t have many photos of the two of us together.

Isn’t this a great photo of him from Jan 1947. He was a golden gloves ( boxing) champion in New York. Around that same time frame he was also a dance instructor at the Arthur Murray Studio of Dance. He danced in the ring and on the dance floor too.







To my husband and all of the wonderful Fathers,and Father Figures , I shout out loud, Happy Fathers Day and Enjoy your day!

  1. Awe Katherine…I’m so sorry that you lost your Dad. I definitely know how you must feel. Lovely photos! Like you, I don’t have many of my Dad and I together. They may be gone from this earth, but they do linger in our hearts, always. ~Hugs, M

  2. What a great tribute to your dad. Looks like a talented guy, and fun to be around.

  3. These words and pictures reveal that your father was a handsome man, that he had an interesting life, and that he loved you very much. I’m sorry to know that your birthday will always be spoiled by painful memories of his loss. My father died on Christmas day and, incredibly, so did his father before him! Thank you for this special post, Katie!

    I am sorry for your lost.
    I see that I am not alone with not having pictures of me with my dad. I can’t think why I don’t. I should correct that.


  6. Lovely post for Fathers Day, and a great photo of the two of you together. How very sad that he passed away on your birthday. I loved that photo of him taken in 1947 (the year I was born!). Hope you’re having a lovely weekend.

  8. Katherine, this is a beautiful tribute. I’m sure your birthdays are bittersweet. Although time helps somewhat, I know we will never stop missing them. May you hold these precious memories close to your heart always!
