STUIBER, Harold George
June 8, 1922 - December 15, 2013

Harold Stuiber, passed away peacefully at home with his family at the age of 91 on December 15, 2013. Born on June 8, 1922 in Kaukauna, WI to Arnold and Linda Stuiber, Harold was the eldest of his three
brothers, Ves, David and Ken Stuiber. At the age of 18, Harold moved to Pasadena, CA to pursue his love for theater, where he trained and worked at the Pasadena Playhouse. In 1944, he met the love of his life, Virginia Anderson, of Sandpoint, ID. Harold and Virginia were married in 1947 and made Altadena, CA their lifelong home, raising their son and daughter, until Virginia's passing in 2001.

While starting his family and working full-time, Harold attended night classes at California State College, Los Angeles, where he earned a B.A. and M.A. in Economics, becoming the West Coast Sales Representative for Joshua L. Bailey & Co., Inc., a New York based selling agent for textile mills. He represented the Company through 1991, at which time he semi-retired. During his employment with Joshua Bailey & Company and beyond, he represented many of the existing and emerging West Coast based apparel manufacturers and country-wide textile manufacturers, whom he counted as loyal clients and friends until the time of his passing.

Harold was an avid tennis player at the Altadena Town & Country Club where he was a member for 55 years and served as President of the Board of Directors. He enjoyed playing golf at the Altadena Golf Course and played weekly at Eaton Canyon Golf Course through his 90th birthday. In 2002, Harold became a hospice volunteer, enriching the lives of the patients he served with his sense of humor, passion for books and natural ability to treat all he met with exceptional respect, honesty and friendship. In 2010, Harold found love again in his marriage to Toni Ward of Altadena. Toni and Harold's remarkable devotion and love for one another and their extended families was truly inspirational.

Harold is predeceased by his brothers, David Stuiber and Kenneth Stuiber. He is survived by his wife, Toni Ward Stuiber of Altadena, CA; his brother, Sylvester Stuiber, of Fond du Lac, WI; sister-in-law, Pat Brecha, of Altadena, CA; son, Chris Stuiber, and his wife, Sue Nolte Stuiber, of Santa Margarita, CA; daughter, Lisa Jaynes, and her husband, Peter Jaynes, of Altadena, CA; grandchildren, Nicole Stuiber Armstrong, Brittany Stuiber Tomlinson, Nick Shaw, Kevin Jaynes, Caroline Jaynes; and great-granddaughter, Savanna Tomlinson. In keeping with Harold's wishes, no services will be held. Memorial donations may be made to a deserving charity of choice or to St. Andrew's Catholic Church in Pasadena, CA.

We met Harold on his morning walks. At first, he had his standard poodles with him. As time went on, it was just Harold. What great conversations we had regarding the newest book or article he was reading. I will miss him.
