Eulogy for a Dad Condolence Letter

Standing up here today may be the most difficult thing I've had to do in my life. Until just a few minutes ago, I wasn't certain I would be able to get through this eulogy. I suppose I'm still not entirely sure, so I guess we'll have to find out together.

This isn't about me, though. It's about my father. You all knew him, which is why you're here today to help me in celebrating his life. You know what a good man he was, and how hard he worked to provide for his family.

Maybe you also know that he was {funny/serious/sarcastic/etc.}, a fact that was pretty obvious when {tell a story that illustrates the aspect of your father's personality that you just mentioned}.

My father had {number} kids, and he was proud of each of us in our own way. We were lucky to have him as our role model growing up, because he was the best symbol of {other personality traits, such as integrity and courage} anyone could hope to have.

He once {tell a story that illustrates the aspect of your father's personality that you just mentioned}.

And he just made childhood fun. {Tell a story about why growing up with this man was a good time}.

He was more than just a father, though. He was a son, a brother, and a husband. And he relished each of those roles, and tried to be the best he could in them. As a son, he was {description of what your father was like to his parents}. As a brother, he was {description of what your father was like to his sibling(s)}.

And as a husband {this will be an important one, so take your time and come up with the best way to describe your parents' relationship, including a story (or stories) that best exemplify that relationship} .

There is no doubt that my father touched a number of lives. I know that he was important to everyone here. And I know that his legacy live on, in the good he did in this community, and in the lives of everyone who knew him. So I hope that you will all be able to join me today, and every day, in celebrating the man that we all knew and loved.
