Of all the times I spent with him when growing up even when it was not a lot I enjoyed times that we went fishing an helping him fix cars always try to be just like him an its funny thou on account the small amount of time we shared I still am told by those who knew him that I sounds an act just like him at times an say they see a lot of him in my eyes it did make me mad at frist because I felt like he abandoned me an longer cared but time went on an I learned to forgive alittle an I remember the times he would call an we would talk even thou he was not much of a good father to me I still enjoyed the times we talked. An he taught me a lesson even if he didn’t know it that no matter what when I carry on his name I wont let my kids down because it hurts growning up without a father to be by your side . An it would be nice to know the family he never got to show me the ones that loved him so I can hear his story’s through them so I can pass his tale to my legacy. If you want to tell me a story about him Facebook me Jeff Balch or Allen Balch or Jay Balch all my contact info in on there . An for the ones that he spent the last of his time with the most I would Realy like to hear your story’s about him
