Eric Wimberger left a message on April 24, 2021:
Dad was the only child of an often stern German immigrant father who grew up in Brooklyn during The Great Depression and following War years. During that time he learned to be responsible and self-sufficient. Traits which would become defining characteristics. He was fortunate enough to meet and fall in love with my mom, Jean in his teens – everyone loved my mom – but even back then at that tender age she knew he was special. Together they were part of an extraordinary group of friends who functioned as an extended family and who would remain close knit throughout their lives. They also helped make him the man he was meant to be. 60 years ago, my parents adopted me into their lives. And if that were all they had done, I would still thank God in my evening prayers for my good fortune. But over the decades, their love and patience instilled in me the ideals they found most important. That same sense of responsibility and self-reliance – along with a deep appreciation for friends and family and a boundless knowledge that I was loved deeply. And I can’t think of anything more important to set a child on the right track. My father wasn’t really an overly emotive man, but he was solid as a rock. And while he wouldn’t off-handedly suggest taking any of us outside to throw a ball around or go for a walk, he would be there if you asked. What he would do though, is have you help him fix the car, or help repair the house – the important things - patiently teaching how to do things right and never speaking down to us. Growing up, I’ve had friends who lost their fathers early in their lives and I couldn’t fathom the loss. I know it was self-serving but I always prayed that my own father would be around at least long enough to answer all the questions about life I had for him. And though they have changed over the years, I still have questions for him to this day. But I’ve been luckier than most and I continue to thank God every day for the decades of kindness, patience and the love of both Edward & Jean Wimberger. For showing me how to be a good father, a caring member of society, and for making me the man I am today.
