Father’s Day Memories and Musings

Sunnyside Manor residents share their memories and reflections on fatherhood.

Father’s Day is just around the corner! This is the perfect time to honor the special men in our lives who guide and inspire us. We asked Sunnyside Manor residents about fatherhood: their favorite memories and lessons from their fathers, and for those who are fathers, what they have passed on to the next generations.

“My dad taught me about how to farm and save money. I always wanted to be able to pass on a good life to my children so they could do the same for their children.”


“My father taught me how to deal with people.”

“My father taught me how to shoot woodcocks, raise birddogs, and put food on the table. As a father, myself, I learned that it can be a lot of fun but also a lot of responsibilities.”

“My father taught me about life itself and how to approach problems, especially how to deal with various personalities of people.”

“My father was a wonderful man and a hard worker – he always brought flowers home for my mother. He was quiet, except when he played bingo!”

“My father gave me a good life and I am very thankful to have had him as my mentor. I have three kids and two step-kids; being a father taught me discipline. The best job I have had yet is being a grandfather to 14 grandkids!”

We’re delighted to celebrate the fathers and special men of Sunnyside Manor who provide guidance and nurturing (and a healthy sense of humor) to their families and to ours.

All of us at Sunnyside Manor wish you a very happy and healthy Father’s Day!
