A gentle man with a quiet sense of humor. An artist with a backhoe: Without a surveyor's stake anywhere, he shaped a piece of uneven ground so well that, when it rained, the water flowed evenly over the whole area.

I enjoyed the company of both Darwin (Stub) and Loren throughout our school years. It's nice to know he had a good life and created a loving family.
