Not sure what to say?

He was one of my professor when I was pursuing the Ph.D. at Northwestern University. His impact on my life is immeasurable. I am who I am as a scholar because of him. What a kind and gentle soul!

My heart goes out to Sterlings family Sterling was beautiful soul he shopped at our store Ralphs 609 in Riverside. He touched every ones heart he came across with and very much talent in writing his beautiful memoras and his beautiful hugs He will be missed dearly by many♀

I had Mr. Stuckey for social studies as a student at Wendell Phillips High School in Chicago and he had a profound impact on my life. Professor Stuckey is the reason that people who visit my house find at least one overflowing bookcase in each room; including the kitchen and bathroom. He gave me a thirst for knowledge and a respect for books that has lasted throughout my life.

For some reason today, Mr. Stuckey was on my mind and in surfing the net I found this page. In thinking...

Prof Sterling stuckey was my supervisor, mentor and father. I was touched by his kindness, compassion and generosity even beyond my graduation as his first south African student he promoted (doctors studies). I will sorely missed him.

It was an amazing privilege to work with and become a friend and colleague of Sterling Stuckey. My mind is alive with so many memories of the intellectual journey through which he led me, and of his sheer kindness, patience, and gentle manner of demanding more from me. And I have never forgotten, and will never forget, the undeserved gift he bestowed upon me. May he rest in peace.

You were and inspiration to many people cousin Sterling and you will truly be missed

I feel so fortunate having known Professor Stuckey, who was a true gentleman and scholar, and I mourn his loss alongside other friends, colleagues and family. We only met on a handful of occasions for my work at Northwestern University, our alma mater, but those visits were rich with stories of his life and his life's work. His enthusiasm for Frederick Douglass, Herman Melville, Paul Robeson, and Sarah Vaughan was contagious and he left me with plenty to read! I will treasure the books he...

An inspiring teacher.

Let me send love and my fond remembrance of a gentle man and towering, fierce scholar of African/African American/American life and culture. You made the nation and our profession of letters so much greater with your wisdom and your words.
