Today is Father's Day and of course I am thinking of my dad, Donald Edward Ormsby. He died nearly 26 years ago - much too soon. Here are just a few photos of him:
This is a picture of my parents, Donald and Ruth (Steinbrecher) Ormsby. This was taken for the church directory in early 1988, just a few months before dad died on July 2, 1988.
Here are my parents on their wedding day - February 4, 1950.
This is my dad in his High School Letter Sweater. He attended Casey High School in Casey, Clark Co., IL from 1933-1936.
This is a picture of my dad as a baby. It's hard to really see him, but I like this picture because it is the only one I have of my dad and his dad together. My dad was born on December 30, 1918 and his father, Harold Basil Ormsby died on April 4, 1919.
Even though I miss my dad, I am grateful for the time I was able to spend with him. He was never able to say that about his own father.
Happy Father's Day, to my dad, and all my grandfathers in Heaven.
