Notes

My Dad is loved so much by myself, Kristin, my mother, siblings, his brothers and sisters, friends, and fellow comrades from the VFW. Kristin and I have so much to process the next few days but to know he was surrounded by the ones that loved him most meant the world to all of us.
He loved Kristin Bressler, his grandchildren, my mother, and I with everything in him. He was never perfect but he was always present and always strived to do the best he could for us all. He was a very honest man, a true veteran, and a hero in my eyes.

He loved drinking mountain dew. He would keep 2 liters in the freezer when we were kids like slushies and still loved mountain dew to this Day. He never used margarine always REAL butter, and it was always worth it. Our cheeseburgers always had A1 and banana peppers. He was a Boston, Eagles, Garth Brooks, Led Zeplin and Pink Floyd kind of guy. Music was his getaway. He loved his neighbors and the community he was in, Ruby, Sabrina, Tim. All three of you helped him through his days more than you realized.

He always made Kristin and I recite Forrest Gump quotes. Of course I was Forrest, and she was Jenny and Kristin and I were like "Two peas in a Pod". He made us race from in front of Shelby and Rose's house on 19th street, there was a Crack in the sidewalk and he would tell us to race from the Crack to the front door. (I always won unless Kristin made me skin my knees lol). He would practice football with me at the top of 19th in that big beautiful yard and I was blessed to have him experience the Punt, Pass, and Kick with me at the Bengals game. He was my 6th grade basketball coach and always told me I could be whatever I wanted to be if I set my mind to it. At the end of the road, I hope he knows I set my mind on being a good daughter because that's what I wanted to be. He used to take us to Easter Egg hunts at Sids across from Wendels and taught us how to professionally fly paper airplanes in the ceiling fan with uncle Joe Cresap Cheryl Cresap.

My father lived a very hard, but simple life. He had humbled himself over the years and I've been blessed to get to know him for 31 years of my life. He was stubborn, but loving. He taught me how to stick up for myself no matter how mighty the man and I always stood my ground because of him. He helped me even when he couldn't help himself and I helped him when I couldn't help me. He is and always will be my best friend.

My Dad was very, very sick. He was in septic shock, liver, colon, and kidney failure, pulmonary hypertension, held fluid in his lungs, was not eligible for a liver transplant and said he would pass from anesthesia if put into surgery, yet fought hard for hours before we had to make the worst decision of our lives. His sisters, our Aunt Karen Brown, and Aunt Claudia Dickman were there until they couldn't be. His brother and my Uncle Johnny were there as well. My sister Molly was so supportive of the 4 of us. My step Dad Brian Manning stopped in as well as my sister’s fiancé Nick Centers. James Toebbe from the VFW and Timmy Sullivan, his neighbor and our high school friend showed up. There are other family members and members of the VFW that would have been there if they could have been. My Dad was pushing for us all.

My Daddy finally passed at 6:41PM on 5/24/24. Memorial Day weekend.

None of us will ever be the same and especially me. Thank you for being my dad, Dad. And thank you for your service to the United States Navy. You are gone but will truly never be

forgotten. I love you with my entire heart and soul and you knew that when I watched you take your very last breath.
I love you, Daniel Leo Bressler.
Forever and always.
Love, your Dev Butts and Best Friend.
