Father’s Day is coming up this Sunday, and here at NetSource, we’ve got some pretty great dads! We asked them about some of their favorite Dad moments and Father’s Day highlights. We hope their responses make you smile as much as we did!
NetSource President Greg Petry
Kids: Savannah 17, Chase 16, Tori 22
Favorite Father’s Day Present: Tickets to our family’s first (Devil) Rays game at Tropicana Field – The Rays played the Red Sox and they cleared the benches 3 times in one game. Been to a lot more games since and have never seen the benches clear since then.
Funniest Memory of Being a Dad: Christmas eve when Tori was 4 or 5, my parents came up to be there for Christmas morning. At around midnight, my wife hands me a box and says, “Can you and your dad put this together real quick?” 3 hours and about 1 million small pink pieces later, we had completed assembly of the “Barbie Dream House” – the biggest little project ever.

Favorite Father’s Day Present: A hand-made coffee mug. Juan Carlos has learned that coffee is a very important resource, and you can’t drink coffee from a tie.
