DeMar DeRozan Mourns the Loss of His Father
Spurs’ veteran guard DeMar DeRozan posted to Instagram Friday announcing that his father, Frank, has passed away.
DeRozan wrote this heartfelt message in his post:
“Words won’t serve justice to what you meant to me. Never missed a game, a practice, a opportunity to show me what a great father was. You pushed me my whole life to be able to withstand the roughest of times. Never seen you complain nor fold. All I cared about was making you proud. Over the past 3 years I seen you display the ultimate measure of a man fighting to the end. Wish I could tell you thank you one last time. Rest well Big Dog! Love you Dad.”
Earlier this season, DeRozan missed two road games so he could fly home to California and spend time with his father.
