My Loving Father
If you were to pick one person out of the whole entire world that influences you the most who would it be? Would it be someone close to you are a famous athlete?

He would be my hero because he is strong both mentally and physically, he is very thoughtful for himself and others, and he also is very smart.
My dad (Keith Edwards) was born in 1968 and grew up in East Chicago. My dad has 2 sisters (Ruthie, Chrissie) and 1 step sister (Mary).

He loved to go riding around the block with his friends on his motor powered scooter. Sadly when he was eight his dad died of a brain tumor.

Then slowly my dad got over the death of his father and he moved on to high school and he attended Bishop Noll catholic school. He liked to have some fun but wasn’t always hit the books kind of kid, his grades were decent but he still made it to college. But in high school he was a cheerleader (lifter). A funny thing about
