Compassion, to him, came naturally
He would consistently find empathy and humanity
When circumstances were dire, he understood the gravity
Rain, snow, or shine, he was there for his family

Classic rock, motorcycles and adventures
Sunday dinners, Christmas lights and scriptures
Hockey, renovations and lectures
He carries on in our hearts and pictures

In times of strife, he constantly adapted
Despite adversity, he never stayed stranded
He never took a sunrise or sunset for granted
He could always make the mundane seem enchanted

He had his faults, he was not perfect
He was human, lest we forget
Stubborn, tempered and felt morally correct
Yet he’d always find a way to shield us, to protect

Family, duty, honor
He made us all stronger
I wish he stayed a while longer
For now, I grieve my grandfather
