What are some good non-religious readings I can use at a memorial service?

I'm going to be speaking at my father's memorial service on Wednesday and I'm looking for some short readings or poems that are not from The Bible or having to do with Heaven or God or anything like that. Somewhere under 50 lines, I'd say, since I don't want to be going on and on. Some of his interests were hiking (Shasta), children, cars, sci-fi and politics, but general "person close to me" bits are perfectly fine. I've seen the other MeFi posts related to this, but none have been particularly useful. Thanks!
