Dear Donna, Debbie, Beaver, David, Jerry and all of the family, We are sorry for the loss of Stub in your lives and the life of Cortland. He had many challenging and interesting aspects to his life and lived it well. Peace be to you and may he also rest in peace. Sincerely, Carole and Paul Collier
I knew Bob for more than 40 years, going back to the time we were on a CSEA negotiating team. He was always kindly, cheerful and patient, and I always felt more upbeat after I'd run into him from time to time over the years. He was truly "one of the good guys". All the best to the family in this difficult time, and God's blessings all around. Jim Cunningham
