A Father's Day Tribute

A Father's Day Tribute

In honor of Father's Day, I wanted to share a touching tribute from a son to his father. Fellow geek Peter Rojas, cofounder and editor-in-chief of Engadget, lost his father Federico Rojas suddenly before Father's Day last year.

His heartwarming story describes memorable moments when he was growing up, like when his dad would bring home the latest electronics, including an Atari 2600 when Peter was home sick from school after having his tonsils removed.

My father instilled me in his love for technology, but the most important things I learned from him have nothing to do with gadgets. Even though he loved gadgets and electronics, he never made them his life; they were just tools to make life easier or more enjoyable and were never a substitute for the friends, family, and patients that he always put first.

Peter's beautiful and memorable tribute to his father makes me grateful every day to have the amazing father I do. In honor of Frederico, who inspired Peter in all of his endeavors, tell your father today and every day just how much you love him and how much he means to you.
