Gene Stubblefield was one of life's great characters and he will be sadly missed by myself and my family. My wife, Vivien, and I met Gene and his first wife Carolyn in 1968 during a work visit and we became great friends as families from that day onward. He and I shared a fascination with engineering and anything that worked. Although separated for most of our time by 3000 miles of ocean we had many long conversations on how to do things connected with our work, we shared ideas and thoughts on how to solve problems.
In 1980 I worked for Gene in Liberty for 12 months and Gene introduced us into his community and to his friends. We shared our lives for a year both in work and play. For my family that year living and working in Texas was a unique experience that we still speak of to this day and it all came from Gene's friendship and generosity.
Over the years we were able to meet up on many occasions, some times in the US and others in the UK. We shared holidays, barbecues and many, many good times.
After the sad loss of Carolyn we were immensely pleased to hear that he had found happiness with Glennda and we have been fortunate to have been able to spend time with them as a couple. Their obvious happiness together has been a joy to see.
We will always miss him, he was a great friend to have.

I am heartbroken to hear of Gene's death. He was a prince among men. I have known him as a loving husband to my dear friend, Glennda, and a sweet friend. My condolences to all family and friends.

Gene's mother was my godmother and very much a second mother to me. Gene was like a big brother and always treated me well. I have known him all my life and know he was a great man. I know he was very proud of Susan and Eric and they will miss him as will all his family. He is resting in God's arms now.

Eric - We are so sorry for the loss of your dad. Our prayers are for comfort and peace for your family. Psalms 46:1 tells us to rely on God during times of distress. He will sustain you through these difficult days.
