5am to 10pm
An 87-year-old Phoenix man passed away and was fondly remembered by his 54 children.
Yep. 54 kids. Well, not all of them could make it.
It’s estimated he had 54 kids ranging in age from 69 down to 13-years-old.
One of his children described him as a family man, but also a bit of a wild man. ‘He had a lot of umph in him.’
Some of his kids tried to get everyone together for the funeral, but the big problem is they don’t know how many kids he had or how to get a hold of them.
They hung posters up all over town but didn’t get much of a response. Then they tried the local TV news. More children came forward and some even flew in from LA to pay their respects and meet the family they didn’t know they had.
There’s no word on how many of his children ended up making the service.
