“There were a number of occasions, before my birth, that could have meant my father's death.
He could easily have drowned...three times!
As a young man testing out the repairs he had just completed on his car, he ended up rolling over the car...with him in it! My mother could tell you about another scary driving incident because she was in the car with him for that one.
Back when working construction on the World Trade Center, he once dodged a gas explosion while picking up lunch with his brother at a local restaurant; and, another time, was saved by his boss, who, as they both ran to safety, knew exactly how to react when my father's vest caught fire. Fleeing from a life-threatening situation, my dad could have caught on fire!
There were a few tears on my part as I listened, however, hearing my father tell his stories is something I cherish. Not only that, I find it impressive that he probably has enough material for a Netflix mini series - and has lived to tell about it!”
