my father is a man with faith because he fears God and walk through spiritual ways.

I lost my dad many years ago now (he was only in his early 60s) and for a while it was hard to think of him other than the bed-ridden invalid he had become, in pain and sometimes scared, though he had great courage to the end. But now I have regained the memory and image of a funny, kind, sometimes aggravating (but always with a twinkle in his eye) man who loved Rugby and fish and chips and male voice choirs.

The description is self dependent!

My father is very similar. Not the brightest, as he dropped out of school after 8th? 10th? grade and makes dumb mistakes without learning from them. Also an addict. Has a huge heart, and will give what little he has, but can also be selfish and pretty cruel. S-T-U-B-B-O-R-N. Flawed, yes. A hard worker, yes, although that changes as his alcoholism and depression affects him. Absolutely a simple, complicated man, as are my feelings for him. I love him almost as much as I hate him.

A good provider. Stoic and imposing, but he has always been the pillar of the family. Fathers are like that, I guess, for the most part.

My father is my best friend and a role model. He is kind and helpful to people around him. He taught me to always do good things in life and be good to people. People are easily drawn to him because of his knowledge and humour. He taught me how to socialize and meet new people of different cultures and backgrounds. He guides and consults me in different areas of my life. He always encourage me to do whatever I want and not let anyone get in my way. He has shown me no matter what challenges life throws at you, you can always get back up and be someone again. He is someone I can always rely on especially when I hit rock bottom. He is a great father that any child should be lucky and grateful to have :)

My father was a good provider. I can't say we were close, but I don't see myself choosing a different Dad. I'm just glad I grew up with one. Not the most ideal father, but I've known of other people who had it worse.

My father is an old school gentleman. Kind and so very laid-back and relaxed about life. Someone I look up to enormously.

Both my biological and step dad's are difficult people to get along with. My bio is planning an encounter to save my soul because he doesn't agree with my politics and my step is a liar and a cheater. My expectation that a father should be a decent human being capable of empathy isn't too much to ask, is it?
