Dear Margie and Family,

So sorry to hear of Stu's passing. Although the times we spent together were sparse, our conversations were always interesting. Our employment with big manufacturing companies had many similarities that we often compared and laughed about when we realized that we had stories the almost were duplicates.
I very much enjoyed his company and I know many others did too.
He'll be remembered with thought of those discussions and the smiles that will continue with those memories.

God Bless you all. Rest in Peace, Stu.
