Cub was always one of my favorite people to talk to at church and at Long John's. I'll miss him a lot.

I was saddened and so sorry to hear the passing of Cub. He was a friend and a neighbor, when I lived at Worley Hilltop. We played softball together. . And we went fishing and swimming at Worley river. Cub and I were the only ones to dive off the high rocks across the river. He was such a good guy. He was my ride to Cincinnati, when I was a teenager.. Cub never charged me a dime. I'm sure he will be missed by his family and friends.. May God keep him in his loving arms. God-bless
