For My Pops:

It’s been a long road, and sadly, it’s kind of a relief to know that he’s not in pain any longer. Even with the relief, his loss will leave a void in my life. I would love to call him on my way home from work and just talk about his day and my day. He was always so sweet and full of encouragement. We would end every call and he would always tell me to give his regards to Ashley or give his love to Ashley. He was always very thoughtful. He loved Ashley so much, which made me very happy.

I always held my grandparents very close for many years. Grandparents are such special people. They have your connections to the past and help shape your way to the future. Every time I accomplished something, I was so eager to tell them and have them be proud. It was such a good feeling when you can impress them, and that would make you want to do it over and over.

I have such fond memories of my Pops. Some of the most memorable are from being a small child where he would pick me up, drive down to Grand Union in Wappingers to pickup chocolate milk and drive to the Dutchess County Airport to watch planes land and take off. Always visiting him at home when I was a child and seeing the Christmas presents piled up in the corner of their bedroom and feeling guilty that I even saw them, even though they were wrapped. Plenty of summer vacations to Wildwood on the Jersey Shore, going to the beach, playing shuffle board, riding the tram cars. It’s a place where we have some great photos and lots of memories. As I got a little older I realized I should spend as much time with my grandparents as I could, so I would drive down and visit with them often and many times I would take Nonnie and Poppie to the Casino, enjoy their company, and spend a wonderful day with them both.

After my Nonnie passed, I always tried to keep him in good spirits whenever I could. I would always joke that Christmas was just a few months away and I couldn’t wait for all the gifts. That became our little inside joke, just like when we would be driving together and he would ask if the coast is clear to pull out and I would always respond “all clear except for that giant snow plow coming”. We would always exchange boxes of the old school hard candies that he used to keep in his car when I was young. As I got
older I would always just buy them for him and he would tell me “Wow, you found those? Those are not easy to find!”

Pops was also a great story teller. He would tell us stories about how he got the nickname Zack, his time in the Navy and what rituals they did when the ships crossed the equator and just many stories of years gone by and of the various family members that were no longer with us. Even though he would tell us the same stories over and over, he was always excited to tell them and loved reminiscing, and I was always excited to hear them.

Pops was also a great barber. He is the reason that all the way until this day I have never had my hair cut by a barber. He cut my hair until his older years and then Ashley took over. But it was always the weekend when I’d want to go see Pops and ask for a trim.

The one thing I will miss the most will be his personality and character. Anytime I would go see him while he was visiting my parents and I would walk into the back room I would say “Hey Pops” and would he would respond in a loud boisterous “Heyyyyy What’s going on Bubb”. I knew he was just very happy to see me. Also, you knew when he was frustrated or mad, simply because he would give a wave of the hand at you, and you just knew what he meant.

In his final days, he would have random moments yelling out peoples names who have passed previously. From my grandmother, to his brother and sister. My pops loved his family and it was at that time I knew that he was calling to them because they were there. Im comforted to know that he is now with all of them and they are now looking after him. I can just envision a big happy reunion in the sky, with a big party, lots and lots of food and lots of laughs. Not to mention all the sweets and coffee at the end, and maybe a few games of Pokeeno.

Pops, I will surely miss you and our times together. You had a huge impact on my life and I will be forever grateful. I will think about you everyday just like I do with Nonnie. Now go be with her and until I see you again, don’t worry about us... we’ve got this.

Anthony (Grandson)
