Nancy & family,
Many years ago, I had the privilege to have Cubby as a customer at what was then Franklin Bank. He was one of the kindest, friendliest people I've ever had the chance to know. I have thought of him often over the years which led to my google search today and I am heartbroken to learn of his passing. I don't know that you will ever see this, but I wanted to tell you that even 10 years since I last saw him, I remember him so fondly. He was an incredible man and I'm sure he is missed greatly by his family. I am so deeply sorry for your loss.

Dear Nancy and family,

My heart goes out to each of you for the loss of one really great fella I was lucky enough to call my friend. I had the honor of being his assistant for many years, and I will always cherish his friendship and wisdom. He was a great mentor for life values and I enjoyed all of the stories he shared with me about his youth, his service to this country, and his own difficulties with parenting (a subject he encouraged me through, often).

I will also remember some of the very sad moments he experienced throughout his life journey, which he shared with me to remind me that this life is one big lesson and we need to make time to learn the lessons through all experiences, good and bad. He was a keeper and will forever be missed.

Dear Cubby,
I was so happy to have you and Nancy for my wonderful neighbors for 25 years. I really missed you and was so glad when you both came to see me at my new house. We had some fun times together and I have many memories of all the things we had to talk about. Hope we all meet together again someday. Your friend, Janice Culp

Dearest Friend / Brother, Cubby:

You will be greatly missed, but NEVER FORGOTTEN!

During the short few years which I knew you, we developed a strong bond few people ever have a chance to develop.

We had countless adventures that can never be replaced.

Words cannot describe how much I respected you and the joy I received in making you smile.

Just thinking of the time we shared must now keep me going until we meet again.

Love you Brother --
