Dad put a high premium on telling the truth. “Honesty,” he said, “tells people a lot about who you are and what you are.”

Dad instilled in me the value of honesty. There was a right and wrong in my house that was almost Old Testament-like in how I was supposed to do things. I never was late with a library book. I never missed a day of school. I never got involved in drugs. He also taught me to have a work ethic.

The greatest gift my dad gave me was honesty. He was always very fair with rules, and he was the most honest guy on the golf course.

On Sundays, I would sometimes go with my father, who was a realtor, to the open houses that he had. I saw firsthand how honest he was with people. When he’d have a buyer come into a house, he would tell them about the unnoticed or unseen problems. If the furnace didn’t work properly, he’d tell them. He treated prospective buyers in the same way he would have liked to be treated.
