Ricky D: My Dad

Ricky D: My Dad

A hero is defined as a man of distinguished courage admired for his noble qualities. My dad has always been my hero. My dad is constantly doing “noble deeds” for people around him. Although I didn’t appreciate the hundreds of times he’s volunteered my help to shovel our elderly neighbors driveways or help him fix up a friends house, I realize this is what makes him so great. He always puts others before himself and has instilled many great qualities in my siblings and me. My brother and sister went off to college as I entered high school and since my mom works a lot my dad and I had a lot of one on one time together for four years. Over those years my dad came to all of my sport and school events, made sure I was on top of my schoolwork, and always made sure I got to school (even if it was snowing). My dad manages his fatherly responsibilities pretty well and has always been involved in my life. There were times when my siblings and I were younger when my dad would be the coach of three different soccer teams and two different baseball teams in one season just to make sure he was involved in all of our activities. When I got to spend a lot of one on one time with him in high school our relationship became even better. There were times when my friends would be in the car with my dad and me and be shocked out how we act together. We were described as best friends because we have so many inside jokes and click so well. There are times when he’d call me and ask if I want tacos for dinner when I was just about to text him asking if he wanted tacos that night. I am so lucky to have a great relationship with my dad. He is my hero and I hope that I am half as awesome as he is when I grow up.
