Stuart and his wife Lillian were long-time members of my church, Beverly Hills Methodist. They were active in our senior group entitled "The Young at Heart". We always enjoyed Stuart's warm sense of humor and his love for organ music. He organized several trips to organ concerts in Detroit. We cherish many fond memories of him.
