Uncle Russell,
You were the Last of the Mohican’s, the Stuckey’s, and my Uncles you are loved and missed. I have fond memories of the family get together’ s with Grandpa and Grandma Stuckey. You were there with Phyllis and Tommy. You and Verna helped with the plans for my moms funeral (Annabelle) a few years ago. Now you are all gone along with Uncle Luke and Uncle Bob. I miss you all.

You always grew the biggest potatoes, made the best sauerkraut, and found the mushrooms.

I enjoyed our short time together last summer in Old Fort . You are loved and missed by all. Rest in peace. Enjoy your reunion in Heaven. Farewell and God’s speed.

Robert Hoffman (nephew) and Cecilia
Laura Vandermark (great niece) and Kevin
Zachary Hoffman (great nephew) and Lupita and their boys Levi and Colt (great great nephews)
