I'm very sorry to hear the news of "KUB"...........what a wonderfully great man. He was fun, and a great person to talk with. I loved riding his bus in grade school. He famously gave me the nickname of "SID" idea why, but it was his way of having fun with people. My best to everyone........

So sorry to hear of Kub's passing.. I rode his bus for many years and remember his years at the stores.. Love Kub and Inez.. Always said something to bring a smile or a laugh.. He will surely be missed by all..

So sorry to hear this news The world is a sadder place without Kub. He had a gift of humor that could touch the heart and bring a smile even in trying times. He and Inez were amongst the first visitors at the hospital as soon as they learned that my dad had suffered a catastrophic brain hemorrhage. They had been friends since their school years and claimed responsibility for getting my parents together. I’ve heard many funny stories of their double dates. Heaven will be a joyful place with all of them together again. Deepest condolences to all the family.
