When I was about 5 or 6 years old, my family were the people in my life that I looked up to the most. I wanted to be just like my older brother in everything I did and my Mom and Dad were my biggest role models. Yet as I grew older my roles models and influences changed.

My Grandfather was probably one of the most inspirational people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He didn't do anything extraordinary. He wasn't wealthy, and he didn't seem like the kind of person that would inspire an ambitious college student, but he did. I know little of his past, only that he was stationed in Germany after World War II, where, as he said, they would goof off and have fun. He made the most of he time there; he learned the language and culture a bit and even discovered the Freemasons, which was a big part of his life until January 25, , when he passed away.
He manages to be a friend to everyone, however at times my dad can be tough on my siblings and me, but he definitely knows when to be there for us, and calm us down. When my dad was younger, his parents were a lot harder on him and asked much more of him then he does of us. I respect my dad greatly for knowing how to sit down and talk to us in a way more than just a dad, but a friend. The leader I admire the most would need to be my grandfather, his name.
He is 72 years old. He is a retired Executive Officer of a Steel Plant. He is quite fit and active for his age. My grandfather is very loving and caring as a person.
