Father’s Day is a special day to honor and remember the men in our lives who have shown us the right path, inspired us to find our own way, but have always been there to guide us to safe shores. From all of us at Robinson Sotheby’s International Realty, we wish you and your loved ones a very happy Father’s Day.
This is as close as I could come to have them smiling at the camera!
My family be remembering the boys’ Daddy, Matt Jansen (pictured below), who passed away in 2013 and celebrating with my 81 year old Dad, Ed Gembka, in Sandusky, OH.

I truly think I have the best dad! He has been by my side, encouraging me to do and be my best my whole life. In my times of despair Dad always asked, “Did you try your best?” If my response was yes, he would say “Then that’s all that matters.” He is the whole package. We all know he has a killer sense of humor and persona that people gravitate towards. He does and will do anything he can to brighten someone’s day. He goes out of his way to make sure others have what they need and feel good about themselves. As you can tell from this photo, his grandkids are crazy about him!

My daughter, Emily, and I enjoy participating in a variety of outdoor activities. From competitive cycling and paddling events to just kicking the soccer ball around in the backyard, it doesn’t matter – we love it all!
