For the days leading up to Father’s Day, we’ve asked our residents and families to share stories, pictures, and favorite memories of their dads, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers who live in our communities. We’ll be sharing them here on our website and on our social media channels in a series we’re calling: Oakmont’s Fantastic Fathers!

Rosemarie W. wrote in to tell us about her biggest supporter and father, Jack J., who lives at Oakmont Manor.

My dad is a true inspiration to me. He has always been my biggest supporter and the one person I could always count on in my life to help me with any problem big or small. He is my hero and my role model and I’m so grateful to have such an amazing, kind hearted, loving and caring dad.

My parents moved back to Michigan from Florida 8 years ago and for 7 of those years I’ve been able to take Dad to see his favorite baseball team play: the Detroit Tigers. We have some wonderful memories – unfortunately this year won’t work out but I plan to take dad in 2021 when he will be 100 years old!
