What is your fondest childhood memory of your father or grandfather?

Question is a loaded-weapon, to be sure:.

To be sure, most of our days were anything but "fond", notably during my pre-teen and teen years. When I was a kid, I guess there were certain points I could consider "fond"--such as when we went fishing [before we sold our boat] or even when he gave what I called 'otches' [back scratches]. He'd usually use a 'Mickey Mouse' back scratcher we got when my mom's sister took us to Disney when I was 5 or 6 years old.

{{ Disclaimer: This is more of a fondest memory as far as "overall" than just about childhood }}

As far as "fond(est)", it's hard to pinpoint to a specific day, but it was definitely after his heart attack once he woke up from the medically induced coma. I was blunt with him like never seen before by me towards him [yet compassionate as I assumed I was his sole advocate], asked him all sorts of random questions about himself and the Sullivan family and about myself that I was simply curious about but had never gotten a chance to ask. On his end, I had to clarify memories he thought were real [that I won't delve into here] that weren't real.

My dad was NOT a bad man. He is not an evil men. From my observations, he seemed to live by the "Golden Words" -- 'You nice to me, then I'll be nice to you.' Unfortunately he encountered more evil and bad men that brought out HIS bad side more than his good side. He treated you for all intents and purposes the way you treated him--it goes both ways. I could be wrong, and I'm more than happy to be corrected, but we must go onwards in our story. Hopefully we can come back  to this topic later on.
