So sorry to hear about Chubs passing. We have great family memories of so many years ago. Time spent at his Genoa home was always a fun time. We were able to visit Chub and Barb when they lived in Springfield Missouri, had a nice dinner together. All of the summer gatherings were the best times growing up....always a baseball game. Our condolences to you all during this time.
