Vic (291/365)

Vic L.: One part tough guy, one part teddy bear. Every squirrel was named Wally. A talented passionate boxer and Marine, he instilled precious and extraordinary values into his children (and every neighborhood kid too). He and Betty were like bookends made from oil and vinegar.

I like how you described his relationship with Betty. You avoided the "he completed her" cliche'
Thank you for that.

actually the only kind of completing he did was making her completely mad, but together they were strong parents and held their family together in an unique opposite-ends-of-the-stack kinda of way.

P.S. And by the way you've given me undeserved thanks because my love for puns and cliches runs deep.
