During his youth, Stub was asked to play baseball for Kansas City Athletics and Baltimore Oriels but he had to turn them down.

    Judy,
    You and Stub have always been so good to me. I adore you both. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to have you guys in my life. Stub was so full of life and he could light up a room with his Infectious laugh and that beautiful smile. He was the happiest, Kindest and most positive person I have ever known. And I’ll miss his witty sense of humor. He is going to be greatly missed. You and Marty and the rest of the family are in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. What great memories you all have of this wonderful man. You have to be so proud to hear how He has touched the lives of so many people in such a positive way.
    Love you!

    Judy,

    My condolences. I think about Stub often. One of the great times of life was playing baseball for Stub and Wally (Wallace). Thank you and Stub for being a part of my life when I really needed it. He was a great man and did soo much for young boys as a coach and a roll model.

    I remember you keeping the books for the games sitting right by the on deck circle. Often you and I would have a conversation before my at bat. It always ended with me telling you to go ahead and mark a double in the scorebook before my at bat. I think in this case you can mark Stub down for a Homerun!

    Take Care,

    Alan
