Headstone inscriptions for Dad / Father's / Parents

It’s a very difficult task trying to think of what to write on your dads (or a parents headstone / gravestone.) We have put together an extensive list of over 150 epitaphs but below are over 40 epitaphs especially for Dads and Fathers to try to capture their character, values and interests.

Here are some suggestions for headstone inscriptions for Dads:

1. “Beloved husband and father. Forever in our hearts.”

2. “He loved people and laughter. His friends were his world.”

3. “A loving and devoted dad. Forever missed.”

4. “Our loving father.”

6. “His life inspired in me.”
