Sadly, I think most of us have lost our fathers.  You are fortunate to have had him as long as you did and were able to share your Ferrari experience with him.  

I spent yesterday driving 6 hours to visit my son and work on his car.  I try to spend as much time as possible with then.

The summer before I left for college, my father was diagnosed with lung cancer.  That was in the 80s so treatment options weren't great.  He went through it all and was declared in remission.  It came back the summer before my junior year.  I was going to stay home but he said he didn't want me to and that he was going to go through the treatments again because he wanted to see me graduate.  He passed away in December.  It has been 32 years and that memory still hurts.  He only got through 8th grade in Italy and my mother only got through high school here.  My academic success was a big deal for them.  It has been tough to not have them around.  My kids missed out on grandparents that would have been beside themselves to watch them grow and become the young men they are now.

On this note, I paid a tribute to my late Dad on Facebook today and I thought I’d share it here as well, as I’m sure you’d guys appreciate it.


This was something I had forgotten about until I came across the photos while looking for something else and it instantly brought me back to that time, despite the fact I was probably between 6 to 8 years old.


My Dad was a professional photographer and worked at the Pulp and Paper Research Institute of Canada, running their photography department. In between doing specialized work like microscopic photography, he also did mundane tasks like photoshoots for department projects and their annual reports. It was one of these sessions he needed to do after work, in the late evening and it involved researchers in the company library. He took me along as he thought I would have some fun watching the process and I did. In the photo below, these were test shots and I took the one of him and he took the one of me.


Over the years, he would be bring me along to work on many occasions and I always thought it was fun. It felt like I was helping him (and when I was older, I actually did).


Rob Garven met my parents many years ago when we all headed down to Concorso Italiano. Hans and Gary may remember him when he joined me during those FCA events in Seattle. He was never much of a car-guy but he always supported my ambition and ownership of my 308 and helped me out numerous times. In fact, he re-upholstered my glove box lid as the original vinyl covering was torn! Now, whenever I look over at it, it brings back so many great memories (like he’s always there).


So along cLyDe’s message, wishing those of you whose Father’s aren’t with us anymore, a toast to them...
