My Dad was Brutally Murdered When Taking a Friend Dinner
I lost my Dad on December 10, 2012, my life hasn't been the same since.
First off I'll start off with this, my dad was my hero,a friend, an amazing Grandpa (the best we could ask for). He raised three girls on his own after my mom decided she had better things in her life than us. He made so many sacrifices for me and my sisters. He was a devoted Christian who believed in praying and helping everybody in any way he could. He was a man that would never say no to his grandchildren. He took joy and pride of spending time and taking his grand kids everywhere with him. From the day they were born, till the day he was taken away from us.
On December 10th 2012 at about 11 o'clock at night, I received a call from my sister who still lived with him. She was very hysterical. She told me that my she has tried to contact my dad all afternoon and could not reach him. It was unlike my dad no to answer or return phone calls immediately to us. She told me that she got to work and she was met at the door my the State Police. They advised her that an incident had taken place and began asking questions about my dad. They then advised her that my dad and his friend were shot execution style and the trailer they were in was set on fire. We were told that there happened to be a Deputy in the area that saw smoke coming from the trailer. He then stopped and called fire and EMS to put the fire out. After the fire was put out, they found the 2 dead bodies in the trailer.
On that date my dad had taken his troubled friend who didn't have a car to the Doctor. After he dropped him off he left and went to buy him dinner. When he returned with food, somebody else showed up to his friends house also. They showed up to collect a debt from my dads friend. My dad happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. He was robbed and shot 5 times in the head and back.
It kills me to tell the story, my dad meant the world to us. He was our MOM and DAD. It feels like everything was ripped away from us on that afternoon of December 10. The only thing that comforts me is knowing that he was such a man of God, I know where he is at.
We were told that there was 2-3 people involved. I don't know how somebody could be so cruel. Life will never be the same for us and our kids.
He never remarried, his kids and grand kids were his life and he was ours.
On 12/21/12 we were advised that the main suspect in my dads murder case was found dead in his residence. The other one or two remain at large. It is so difficult dealing with all this pain. I hope whomever took our precious dad away is caught and justice is served on these individuals.
My dad is our Guardian Angel now, we miss you more than words can say.
