50 years ago today, we lost a great man. I can't believe how fast the time as gone and how much of an impact he has on us even to this day. He lived a full life in 42 years in which most never live in lifetime.

50 years ago today, May 5, 1967, our Dad Ihor Davidovich died. He was 42 years old. He was from Ukraine, survived the labor camps of Nazi Germany as a teenager. Liberated by the 101st Airborne.  Tasted his first Hershey bar and Wrigley's gum. Married Nina Dmitrivna Kryhina and emmigrated to America in 1949. Became a citizen in 1955. They raised a family of 5 children. Worked as a carpenter and a artist/craftsman. We will see him again.
