REMEMBERING MY DAD THIS FATHER’S DAY

With Father’s Day just around the corner, I can’t help but think about my dad and everything he did for me, for my company, and for so many of the people he met in his life.

The most important thing Dad taught me was to focus on each day as it comes. Dad had what some call “old-school values,” but I think his values can still play a huge part in today’s world. Through my dad, I learned the importance of integrity. He taught me to live each day with honesty and to honor my word, no matter what situation I was in. I’ve seen these values leave our society as time goes by, which makes them all the more important to hold onto. One memory of my dad that sticks out to me is the way he showed people love. It was a big deal for him. You might hear people talk about caring for others or discuss someone who has a genuine nature of loving and helping people — that was my dad. He cared about everyone, especially people who were scorned from society. Dad was really big on prison ministry, and he helped a lot of unfortunate people that no one else really wanted to help. He did that up until the day he died.

he faced to visit these prisoners and let them know that someone cared about them. It was both inspiring and heartbreaking to watch.

As I mentioned in our first newsletter, my dad was a significant supporter when I started US Solar, and I always try to live by what he taught me in both my personal life and business life. I aim to show the same compassion he felt for others to every customer I help. Dad will always be a significant part of my company, both in its philosophy and in the unwavering belief he showed in me from the very beginning. A phrase that comes to mind when I think of my dad is “one day, one life.” A lifetime is created through each day and the actions we put into it. My dad was all about focusing on each day as it came and doing as much good as he could in that one day. I think that if we can focus on each day with as much care and love for each other as my dad did, we’ll live one hell of a life.

ONE MEMORY OF MY DAD THAT STICKS OUT TO ME IS THE WAY HE SHOWED PEOPLE LOVE. IT WAS A BIG DEAL FOR HIM.”

I remember quite vividly how he would go down to the prison to preach or talk to the prisoners about life, even in the six months before he passed. He found the strength through cancer, treatments, and all the other hardships
