In January 2012, my father died unexpectedly. He was here, then 12 hours later-gone. In January 2013, my mother passed away only two weeks after her cancer diagnosis. At the age of 26 years old, I was an orphan. With my immediate family gone, stripped away within 12 months of each other, how could I begin to understand how to continue on with life? Failure, though, was not an option. Inspired by the work ethic learned from my father, and the compassionate outlook developed by my mother, the Stangl Bomb has been created as a symbol of inspiration to never give up on your dreams no matter the circumstances. My name is Kevin Anthony Stangl, and I am Allergic to Failure.
