My condolences to you and your family. Looks like you had one heck of a Dad - cherish the memories. I owe you a hug the next time I'm at the Broiler.

RIP Mr. Biondo
That pic of him waving brought tear's to my eye's. Bowing the head for the families loss.
Thank you Slammed, RustyFords, Fabian, Bob...comforting words from all of you kind folks. That pic where my Dad's waving was a rough day for my Dad; he was definitely operating on will power. Wish he could have been here for LARS, we would've walked arm in arm smiling and appreciating all the great roadsters. In my life I hope I can live to be the person he made me feel I could be. And maybe help rebuild another engine on a kitchen table in his honor ;-)
Happy Father's Day...I love you, Daddy.
The daddy man would love to have walked around there with you.
The only thing we can take from this world to the next is our relationships. Thank you for sharing alittle bit of this wonderful man's life. God Bless all those who he touched in such a beautiful way.Prayers for his family...
God Speed and prayers from Indiana
Wow, thanks for sharing his life with us. Sounds like he was one of a kind......
Sorry Adriene. You have my empathy.
so sorry to hear the news!! praying from southern alabama.. i lost a grandfather a few months ago and i will say his stories on the old cars he had and loved had something to do with me and my hot rod hobby.. i know how terribly you must miss him but smile knowing we will all be together again and happier than we were during our most fond/heartwarming memories we will and have had in this short life together.. god bless..
God bless him. May he rest in peace.
wow great story for what appears to have been a good man much respect from oregon
Sad news,God bless you all.
Lil32, Plymouth52, HemiFarris...thank you. I've been thinking about the remarkable man my Dad was. What a clear thinking, problem solving mind! My Dad lived in Pennsylvania for a few years like his role model Benjamin Franklin. He was also proud that he was born the same day that Ben Franklin was: January 17th. And both men lived to be 84. Fascinating minds and parallels.
May we all be inspired, by a great man like this. R.I.P. John.
So Adriene was inquiring about doing a memorial cruise for her dad John.
We were crunching ideas and see what I could help her with. We were thinking perhaps going from George's 50's Diner in Bixby Knolls to the Broiler.
Do yo guys have ideas? perhaps some shops to stop at on the way to our destination????
Does anybody have a hook up for this kind of idea? Can anyone assist with the cruise.
I would be proud to be apart of that cruise.. I'll be watching for the details!
Thanks J, that would be awesome! We'll put some ideas together and keep everyone posted here.
You know me I am in. How about another ghost cruise? Hit a few of the old hot spots along the way.
Thanks for posting for me, Doug. I love this; just as my Dad left it.
I think that would be great!!!
Well lets do it for the Daddyman! Give us a good idea when you guys could attend the run .
