My favorite hero is my now deceased grandfather who was literally born in a shack with nothing and raised 8 children, served in World War Two as a Marine, grew a farming operation and is still today, a shining example of hard work, honor and dedication we should all aspire toward. He was a respected man in community affairs, a good neighbor and great friend to many. I am proud that my name reflects his name and that he will be honored in Hero Park!
