Remembering my daddy

Father’s Day was always an enjoyable day for me. However, this Father’s Day will be more of a sad day for me since my daddy passed away in April.
My daddy was easy to please when it came to buying gifts on Father’s Day, his birthday and at Christmas. However, his philosophy always was, “Don’t buy me anything! I don’t need anything. You save your money, don’t spend it on me.”
My dad, Leighton Fruge, lived a simple full life. Born in September of 1930 to a family of 11 children, he learned at a very young age to live a simple life.
