Not sure what to say?

Sto and I became friends at Carolina. He was a leader in our fraternity, Phi Mu Alpha; and, we spent many hours together. I especially remember eating pizza and drinking beer together at the old Rathskellar on Friday afternoons, watching and listening as he led the 16-piece Sinfonians dance band, embarassing our friend Jim Finison by our over-the-top public behavior, and trips to the beach in his covertible. We always had a lot of fun.

I saw him only a few times after he...

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Fox when he came to visit his daughter, Lindsey at ECU, who was my sister's roommate. He left a lasting impression. What a wonderful human being that will be sorely missed.

Sto, was a friend as far back as jr, High
days. When I was married Sto & wife lived for a short time a couple of houses
from me & my husband. Most recently I have passed Sto on my way to work and also, at Sears where he made at least one
purchase that I rang up for him. We always talked about GHS days and mutual friends.

Too many memories to recount - Sto was a unique person in many ways. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.

I am deeply saddened by the news of Sto's passing. ...I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to his family. I consider Sto one of the finest men I have the pleasure of knowing as well as a true friend. I will remember all the fun we had over the years and the great analytical discussions. Sto you will be missed by many!!

STO, was a friend form GHS days.

When I was married, Sto & wife ended living on the same street as we did.

The last few years I used to pass Sto on his way to work, I was also on the way to work. at Sears. Sometines Sto would show up at Sears, to by an item, we would chat about GHS, he would always ask about Wilma Kay and tell me to say hello from Sto.

I will miss him and alot of other GHS classmates will also miss him.

Great memories of working & playing together...Your spirit lives on.

Sto had been my friend for 65 years. Rest in peace, my friend.

Sto was one of the real gentlemen in the GHS Class of '59. He will be sadly missed in each of the lives he touched. He always left you with a smile, on ones face.

Ron Wright, GHS '59
