Tip of the Cap to Hank "Papa" McFadden

Tip of the Cap to my grandfather, Hank "Papa" McFadden, who passed away peacefully last night.

He loved monster trucks and cooking shows. He always wore Vans tennis shoes and let us watch wrestling when we were kids. It was all the chocolate milk we could drink at his house. He would show up to Christmas with a garbage bag full of presents. I would buy him steaks for Christmas every year because he really wasn't supposed to have them, but I knew my Nani would cook them for him if they were a gift from me.

He loved his family and was everything a grandfather should be. I love you Papa.

Sending you my best wishes. You memories of your Grandfather sound wonderful and they will stay in your heart forever. He sounded like the perfect Grandad, the kind that I also had and miss since he passed away 16 years ago. My husbands Grandma passed away 3 weeks ago and she was a wonderful woman who has left a huge hole in our lives, she was so precious to us but now she is reunited with her daddy who she lost when she was 5 years old, something she never got over in all her 93 years. I know she is happy now and not tormented anymore

thanks for sharing. x

Sorry hear about your lost...best wishes to you

He was a lovely grandad, you were very lucky, best wishes. xB

You sound like you loved your Grandpa. He has left you with wonderful memories. He will always be a part of you!
May he rest in peace and may you find solace in all your memories.
Take care!

Dear Scott, My sympathy to you for the loss of your beloved granddad! He was a very special person in your life, and will surely be missed. But you have very special memories to keep in your heart forever! My best to you! ;o)

He sound like a wonderful granddad. May all the wonderful memories sustain you through this difficult time.

Thanks for the kind words, it's greatly appreciated. I miss him but he's in a better place given the condition (COPD) that he was battling. Really appreciate the support! Thanks!

Best wishes Scott
