Reminder: Please join my family on campus tomorrow...

[27]

Made a post about this last week, and several asked for a reminder the day before. Mostly copying and pasting from my previous post...

My father was a Clemson graduate (Class of 1964). He was born and raised in Spartanburg, and was the first in his family to go to college. He moved to Austin, TX in the 70's where he worked as an engineer and raised a family. He passed away unexpectedly in 2011. He was a lifelong Clemson fan, and the one who taught me to love college football. I tell people most of the curse words I know are from watching Clemson football with him in the 80's. He loved Clemson, and represented the university well. His favorite restaurant was The Beacon (specifically the onion rings).

Tomorrow, 2/22, my family and I visiting Clemson to plant a tree on campus in his honor. It would really mean a lot to my family and me (especially my mom) if we could have a small crowd of students/faculty/anyone at the ceremony. The tree planting will take place at 10:30am (2/22) in front of the Flour Daniel engineering building.

If you are on campus, or in the area, please come join my family and I as we honor an incredible father, engineer and Clemson fan.

Thank you!!!!!


I'll be there. I'm bringing the tree.

Thanks gtriple!!!!!!!



DavidAg02 - Care to share what "flavor" tree you'll be planting? Assuming there will be a marker at the tree for us to view as we peruse the Campus?

Hope you get the turnout any fallen Tiger deserves!!!

Kudos to you for making it happen!!!

Hopefully I don't sound like the biggest jerk on the planet asking this, but it raises a red flag to me. My questions are:

Do you have to have special permission to plant these trees? I can't imagine planting a tree on someone's property without permission.

Do the trees have to be approved (type, size, etc)?

I'm not trying to offend, but this seems to be an odd thing to do without permission/approval on everything. Even in my HOA we can only plant certain things, so that's what made me curious.

All that said - I hope it all goes well. Maybe my sons will do something similar for me someday. :)

Yes to all your questions. All of this has been arranged through the University, and is considered an official donation. I joke that this is the most expensive tree we'll ever buy, because it required a significant amount of $ to make this happen. They had to approve the spot and the tree selection so that it fits with the existing landscaping.

No we are not just digging some random hole in the ground on campus and dropping a tree in it.

I will be with you in spirit. My grandfather, 2 uncles and 3 cousins are Aggies. I attended the game in College Station this year and had a blast. I hope you can make it back in September!

Wish I could be there... Working and in Charlotte. But best wishes and know this Tiger is mentally there for you. God speed and hope to see that tree flourish on campus all the times I visit, Tiger Brother.

I have to travel to Florida tomorrow to help bury my wife's grandparents, otherwise I'd be there with you. What an amazing thing you're doing to remember your dad. Hopefully everyone who passes by the tree will know how much better your dad and your family make this world. Blessing to you and your family.

I think it is great what you are doing in memory of your father. I wish I could be there but I will be sure to go by the area and take a few photos of the trees planted.

Will be with you in thoughts and prayers.
