He was Catholic. Devout. Drove his family an hour each way to attend Latin Mass.
He was the father of nine children. He and his wife were married for 55 years.
He was funny. Not vulgar funny, intelligent funny.
In a big family the first child is kind of like the first pancake. If it's not perfect, that's okay, there are a lot more coming along.He was smart...like scary smart. Brilliant, really.
He was concerned with truth, not self-promotion. He knew right from wrong and wasn't afraid to speak the truth.
He was christened Antonin but those who loved him called him Nino. Yeah, that's why :0)
