This book is the story of a businessman, World War II veteran, and most of all a loving father, who enjoyed making people's lives easier by inventing things. The author takes the reader through the journey of the hopes and disappointments he and his dad experienced during the process of the developing and marketing of the various inventions. His father's journey of inventing began in 1956 and ended in 2013. "I will never forget that cool Monday morning on June 28, 1965." That date was the beginning of his journey with his dad. During the journey, the determination, values, and work ethics of his father is exposed for all to see the example of how to live a satisfying and fulfilling life. Even though his formal education was limited because of work responsibilities on the farm, he owns five patents in the Washington, D.C., Patent Office. Not bad for a seventh-grade education. Along with the goal of making life's daily chores easier for many people, his dad so desperately wanted to see at least one of his inventions pay off in order to leave his children a financial inheritance. The character, humor, and common sense of his father is revealed in the stories of the various inventions. In the final analysis, the inheritance that he will leave his children and all who know him is priceless.
