He was understanding and loving always there when you needed him. he gave good advice on how to navigate through the negativity in life and he always showed you how to turn negative into a positive to make you a better person
Pops made sure we knew each other as a family, whenever we called, he was there no matter what! he made sure he kept his cars clean.
I loved how he was always spontaneous, we bonded over play fighting and watching movies together.
