    I met Stubby before he trimmed his trigger finger, his nickname was from football. I was between jobs at the time and was invited to join Stubby and two other friends On the roof. We worked together and went on many off-road camping adventures in SoCal and Arizona.
    I came on the job 2/9/63 and we continued on adventures together. After a couple of years Stubby said “ I want a piece of that”. While roofing, we would calculate the cost of the trip. The wages lost while gone to come up with total trip cost before we would deciding if we could go. Trading shifts cured that problem. The four of us were all in a predator hunting club together and trading shifts made making scheduled hunts easy.
    Then Stubby got gold fever which changed the course of the rest his life.

    Stubby was one the best and toughest firemen I had the privilege to be assigned with. He always had a heart and a hand out to give help to any one in need. May he rest in peace, and may God bless his family.

    I was sad to learn of your passing. We were drill tower classmates back in 1969 and sharded the great State of Nevada as our home. Rest in peace my friend as your work is done. Duane Warth, LAFD ret.

    While I never worked with Stubby, I knew him as we lived a few miles apart in Nevada. A great guy always ready with a good story. May he rest in peace.

    I worked with Stubby at FS 26, my 2nd house as a rookie in 1970. He was very helpful with any questions I had and I loved all his stories about packing and mining. As a rookie I always made it to the grapevine to answer it first unless Stubby was standing in the doorway !!!!!! ( never made it ) Stubby RIP…….

    I am truly sorry to hear this, our condolences and prayers go out to his family.
    Stubby and I sat next to each other at the drill tower, later we worked together in the Harbor (what stories!). Our vacation with Stubby and family to ‘The Mine’ (1987) will always be a highlight of my children’s memories.
    He was full of life, fun and fellowship and a very good guy to have watching your back. Rest in peace and God bless brother…
