This is A wonderful tribute to your dad. It's a good thing Grandma didn't give upon him.

My suggestion to help the reader relate to the character would be to give him a name. He was only known by he until about halfway when you mentioned he was my dad. If you wanted to keep it a surprise toady some suspense you could have used his first name then in the end announce he was your dad.

But your certainly covered the topic both your dad and Grandma were outstanding.
