Not sure what to say?

I heard about Dr Sturgis and wanted to let the family know I am so sorry for your loss. I worked for Dr Sturgis for many years and enjoyed working with him very much. He was a great man and wonderful Dr. I will miss him.

So sorry to hear of Dr Bob's passing. He and family were good friends of my parents, Meg and Gordy Alexander and I remember fun family gatherings. I know he was greeted with great joy by Audrey and Jenny. Was so glad to re-connect with him at Friendship Village when my dad was in the care center. God Bless you all.

Dr. Sturges wrote a wonderful reference for me when I applied for nursing school so long ago in 1959. He was a joy to be met in the halls of Fairview Hospital. I can still hear his boistous laughter as he met me just outside a sweet older patient's room while I carried a covered bed pan with a rose on top that the patient had given me. I am sure the angels met him with joy as he entered the pearly gates. He was truely an except man and a wonderful doctor. I thank him for the encouragement...

My dad tells the story: "He comes out and says, mother and daughter are doing fine, but the baby is kind of a scrawny little runt." Thank you for bringing me into the world Dr. Sturges.

Condolences to Dr. Bob's family - Heaven has welcomed a special man... and the first person I met as he carefully delivered me into this world on August 20, 1951. Thank you for your friendship and kindness to my parents, Carl and Esther Berg and also your medical support to our family for so many years.

Dr. Bob will always have a special place in my heart - literally. In 1958, he successfully diagnosed and treated my Rheumatic Fever with a relatively new regime of penicillin. I was only 6 years old. As a result of his kind and wise care I never had any residual effects from that illness and have gone on to have an extremely physically active life. I will always be feel grateful and fortunate that he was my doctor. I remember going in weekly for my dreaded "sed rates". When the...

It is so wonderful to hear these stories about dad from those he has treated. Thank you for taking the time to share there thoughts. It warms our hearts!

Dear Dr. Bob! Put me in Fairview for 3 days, 1970. My outer lining of my heart became "inflamed". Could be TB, Rhuematic Fever, couple other dangerous things. Turned out, bad cold a week before (virus only). But NO CHANCES! 17 years later, I'm walking behind him in the Colonial Church EDINA Choir, and someone calls him Dr. Bob. RIGHT AWAY...I knew that he had been "my doctor" back then. We renewed our aquaintance, and became good friends. What a marvelous fellow! In later...

We want to extend our sympathy to the Sturges family,you had a one of a kind man there, we loved him so much!
Dear Dr. Sturges, Thank you for your excellent care, knowledge and compassion for all the years you treated us. You were so good to us, not only as a doctor but as a friend also and we relied on both for so long. Ron was thinking about you on Friday,your day of passing to be with God. Barbara was thinking of you this morning. Rest in Peace Doctor.
