Not sure what to say?

Eric,
We knew you as a toddler, when your dad was stationed in Heilbronn, Germany. Your dad shared an apartment with my husband and your mom brought you over to Germany for a few weeks.
Your dad and mom were remarkable people. Your dad made a wonderful turkey dinner for us once and I still have your mom's recipe for apple cake. The few times that you were with us, your mom refused to use the word "no" with you!!! You were "into" turning lights off and on, so we...

A true American Hero, the world is a lot smaller without Vits.

Vitauts was the epitome of Leadership and the conummate Artist and Friend.
Your memory is always in my heart and your art will always hang on my wall.

You are missed every day.

Vitauts was inspiring, I met vits at the YMCA in 1960, and again when he was home from Asia. My condolences to a hero. Dan Price 5th SFG "68"

Vits you are so deeply missed already. Always knew you approved when you flashed that smile of yours. That smile was contagious! You were always great for a debate and more often than not you won no matter who it was with or what it was about. I always loved hearing your life stories! You were an amazing man Vits. To Vits's boys, he always talked very highly of you, your families, and all of your accomplishments. He was a very proud man! Vits you were a wonderful person, gonna miss you big guy!

We never had the pleasure of meeting Vits but have heard many heartwarming stories from his family in Michigan. His artistic talent was admired by all who viewed it. We send our sympathy and prayers to his sons and family.

I've only known Vits for the last 10 years or so, but in that short time I can tell you he was a challenge, at times, exasperating, mischievous, shy, childlike, loyal, full of generosity, sweet and sour and a “force to be reckoned with.” In a word: a curmudgeon. “A walking contradiction.” His relationship with my friend Sherry developed into an ongoing contest of wills that at times was difficult to understand; but in the end, it was apparent that these two people loved each other...

As a former Bangor YMCA Leaders Club member, Vits and Aivars became good friends with me and a group of other East siders spending many enjoyable hours at the Y together with John Coombs and Jack Wise. Memories I will always cherish. I wish the entire Knuble family deepest condolences during this time of sorrow.
