My dad, Frank, has experienced many things in his 91 years. He is a Master Cabinetmaker from Austria, born in a time when tuition was a pig his father paid to the Master who taught him his trade. For many years, he and his crew used their talents to fabricate the display cases at the Marshall Field’s in downtown Chicago. At one time he even worked outside on the roof of the John Hancock building. After work he’d never hesitate to offer his talents to family, friends, and neighbors to deal with the handyman issues they couldn’t handle. There was nothing dad couldn’t fix! Age has slowed him down. Thankfully, the man who used to help everyone now has help from the staff at Parkside. Companionship, activities and tasty meals at Parkside help him cope with the loss of his wife, Fannie, of 64 years. He misses her very much and the move to assisted living has helped fill a void and provide him with a more fulfilling quality of life. Say HI when you see him and he’ll be happy to tell you a story about how things used to be!
