I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember that plea - and I'm terribly sorry to hear that your father has passed away.

You're in my family's thoughts.

Condolences, sounds like a hell of a guy from what everyone else wrote.

What a blessing to have entered into his reward with his family at his side while occupied with a beloved activity! It sure seems like The Father ordained blessing for your father to the very end.

I've been there. I feel even today what you're feeling now. Do what you have to do to get through. Rely on those that you know you can rely on and let it out when you need to. It's been 4 years since I lost my dad and I still miss him every single day. Our fathers make us the men we are, and I'm always grateful to my dad for his influence on my life.

Our prayers for you and your family. While I did not know your dad I can see by the comments here from others he was a stand up guy. The better the person the harder it is on the loved ones when they pass, your pain must be deep. My father has been gone 20 years now and to this day I remember all the big and little things he taught me and so shall you.

God's speed Hawkstorian and family.

I feel for you, John. Grief is a helluva thing to go through, and it tends to be a little worse when the loss is sudden.

However, like you, I believe that many coincidences are more than mere coincidences, that many show signs of divine intervention or manipulation. And as an ardent Seahawks fan, I can think of few ways to go that would be better than watching the Seahawks win a game while in the company of those I love. I never met your dad, but I think it is entirely possible that this is the way he would have chosen to depart this earth if given the choice.

I hope you can find some comfort in this.

My condolences. I didn't want to read the first post, because I knew it'd be heartbreaking. Hope everything is going well.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, John.

Cherish the many wonderful memories you`ve got and it sounds like you've got too many to count which says everything about your dad.

One day at a time...

Crap!

I wasn't going to, but then I teared up reading your post. I wish you and your family well.

I want the Seahawks to get on the ball and make a permanent memorial to the fans who've passed
through the years - a big, huge plaque where all of our names can one day join your dad's and help
put our brief time here, and the necessity of living life to the fullest, into perspective.

My thoughts are with you and your family, John. Your dad sounds like a great guy. I can only imagine myself in your shoes, and realize just what you must be going through. It's touching to read that you and your brothers were all at his side.

I have a similar relationship with my father. Sports being our common bond as long as I can remember. Going to Seahawks, Sonics, Mariners, and Husky games. Talking about them on the phone when there's not a ton otherwise to talk about. Most phone calls start off with "How are you doing?" followed up with discussing the most recent game or big sports related story in the news. Most of my great childhood memories that included just myself and my dad always seem to be centered around sports. Be it going to games or playing at the park. I'm sure my dad and I would still have a good relationship without sports to bond around, but I know it wouldn't be the same.

I hope everyone reading this thread who still has loved ones around takes a moment to think about it. Far too often in life, we don't appreciate the people in our lives until it's too late. Again, my heart and thoughts go out to you, John. Losing a loved one is never easy. But to lose something means you had something in the first place. And reading your post, you and your family truly had a special bond.

My sincerest condolences to you and yours good sir, not sure we've ever talked personally but your recognisable from your presence on these forums and enlightened opinions. Very sorry for your loss.

Well said. I almost lost my Dad last year - I was on deployment off the coast of Africa and flew 24 hours (Djibouti-Ethiopia-Kenya-France-Miami-Norfolk-Washington DC-Portland, OR) home to see him. Thankfully, it wasn't his time. I'm extremely close with my old man (as well as my Mom and siblings) and dread the reality of losing them.

Me and my dad have been long time hawks fans and this year we bought our first season ticket package. Well I lost him right before the first game. It's not easy losing someone that close to us. But as some one who just lost his father from one son to another sorry buddy. The next day get easier but never the same.
