Son of whale is a blog created to encourage, keep up with, and occasionally poke fun at the odd characteristics of my Father, whale. My dad was truly one of a kind, and has friends and family all over the world. He was one of the most creative and brilliant people I know, yet with the positives come quirks and laughs that give our family stories to share at Christmas. I decided to begin to put them down for him and others to read.
Why whale? My father was a swimmer in college and was on the hefty side compared to the other swimmers. Throughout the years other names have been given to Dr. Mark, Rock doc, doc and waddle. Yet I chose to honor him with whale. He was and is my dad and therefore I will always be son of whale.
On July 26, 2008 my father passed away. He has a left a legacy none of us can even begin to imagine. The following pages and post are a tributes to him as we celebrate together a man who changed the world. May my life and how I live it, as creative as possible, honor him.
