Sorry for your loss - Stu and I had many discussions on the value of the Atari computer vs the personal computer while we were at the Dept of Education. I always enjoyed chatting, and learning, from him.
I, like Stu, started my journalism career delivering newspapers for The Republic. I was just 19 when I interned in the newsroom, but Stu's leadership has stayed with me my whole life. I'd like to express my heartfelt condolences to Mrs. Huffman and Amy.
Sending our heartfelt condolences from the May family in Indianapolis. Stu was much admired. We know he will be in heaven keeping his younger brother John in line again now!
Jane and Amy,
I'm so sorry to hear about Stu. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Stu and I were inducted into the US Army on 2 September 1954. After riding the bus from Columbus to Indianapolis, where we were given physicals, sworn in, we were transported to Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. After being assigned barracks, some GI weaing a T-shirt and fatigue trousers starting giving us orders. Stu asked him who he was and he said I'm in charge and you do what I say. When Stu questioned his authority, the guy said we'll just see what the First Sergeant has to say. So I went with them to the see the Top Dog. When Stu explained that the guy displayed no sign of rank and became impressed with his own importance, and I backed Stu, the Top Kick found for Stu and suggested that was a better way to get recruits to obey.
Since his sister, Becky and I were friends and classmates at CHS, Stu and I got along swell Stu stayed there for basic training and I was placed on a troop train and sent to Ft. Bliss in El Paso, TX. Stu wouldn't let anyone walk over folks. It was a lesson fondly remembered all these years. My prayers and thoughts are with Stu's family. Blessings, Bert Talbott
