Happy Father's Day

Father’s day is always about the US Open to me. Watching it with my daughter Jenn every year is a tradition we’ve done forever.

My father in law Phil Kontoff is here for awhile. He’s 93, and slowing down a lot. He’s not interested in most anything except staying warm, so he spends a ot time outside in the Las Vegas heat.

Happy Father’s Day Phil

The other father I’m glad is in my life is my son in law Neil. He’s a great dad, works a ton of hours, still has time for his boys, and has given me a great gift, three beautiful grandchildren.

Happy Father’s day Neil

My dad passed away in 1993 at the age of 64. He didn’t do a lot with us. Having many heart attacks in his life, he wasn’t much for throwing the ball around. He spent a lot of time at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Redondo Beach. On Saturday he’d hang out at the Knights and bartend. I’d go down a log of Saturday’s and learn how to shoot pool, or use it as a starting point to go ride my bike from Redondo Beach up and around PV, or over to the Redondo Beach pier.

He was a good father, and always laughing and smiling, and with his medical issues, says something about his character.

Being a father to me means everything to me. I have one of the best daughters. She’s a great business woman, a great mother to three beautiful kids, and a great daughter.

She learned how to laugh from me, integrity from me, hard work, and how to enjoy life.

Jennifer made me a great dad, and I couldn’t have done it without her!!

Extreme Home Makeover, Phil Kontoff edition

Phil came back out to stay with us for about 6 weeks, as Nicole and Susan decided to give him a makeover, so there wouldn’t be a lot of Roberta memories. This is what they came up with, they did an incredible job.
