Art, That is really a lovely story about your Dad. I'm sure he must have been mighty proud of you, even though he couldn't say *those* words!
My own father was a New York City Fireman. He didn't go to college, but he was the most voracious reader I have ever known. He never told me he was proud of me, either, but I knew that right to the end he was tickled that I had become a librarian!
