Stu "Bubba" was a die hard fan of the University of Michigan "Go Blue!" Detroit Lions, Detroit Tigers, and Detroit Red Wings. He was a big sports fan in general. He also loved to travel to warm places. Stu and Terri would go on cruises frequently. He enjoyed building along side with his father several stock cars including EZ-1 and #33 to which he would race regionally. Stu liked both attending and watching Nascar. He was truly the life of the party! Above all, he loved spending time with his family.
Stu was a “people person” to him, no one was a stranger. He was social by nature and everyone knew him from his smile. He was a model family man and will be greatly missed.
