Miss Your Sweet Smile
It's been over a month...Stu was a well-known and much loved personalty in many southwest Colorado towns: Telluride, Ouray, Ridgway. Frisco & Dillon were home to him as well.
Computer work and creating web pages were a big part of Stu's life. He also was a server in numerous restaurants, always getting patrons to return time and again. MUSIC: that was a true love! Concerts, trivia games, work with KOTO radio in Telluride, and so many musical venues there and elsewhere.
His family: a sister and nephew in South Carolina, two aunts and cousins and other family in North Carolina. Step-family in Tennessee. All are saddened, but feel love.
His cat. Tweak, is safe and happy in his new home, full of big purrs.
Educated, his love of all genres of music, and his multi-talents. What will be missed most? His contagious laughs.
