I only knew Bobbe for 3 years but I will always remember her. She alway had a smile and left a smile on everyone she interacted with. More recently she would stop by the St George Tucker house after Sunday service for a refreshment and conversation and she always had stories to tell me. She was a special person. I can see her now, sweeping the stairs leading her up to heaven.


Marie Bond posted on 5/12/21

It was always a pleasure to be with Bobbe at the Tucker House, her sweet smile and willingness to serve our guests and she made sure the porch and steps were perfect. I will miss her so much, what a wonderful lady.


Karen Hartman posted on 5/12/21

A bright light radiated from this sweet lady through her ready smile and sparkling eyes. That sparkle is now a star in the night sky watching over us. The warmth of her spirit will be in my heart always.

I had the pleasure of sharing some time with Bobbe at the St. George Tucker House in Colonial Williamsburg. Her good nature and kindness with guests and co-volunteers, in addition to her willingness to sweep the Tucker steps and walk in ANY weather, are my warm memories of Bobbe. Peace to the Redding family.

Elias always had a special place in my heart and from the moment I met him, we had a special connection, either talking about stocks, or just life. We used to email each other alot and I enjoyed it very much. Lackey has a great soul, and I can tell he rubbed off on everyone, thats why he has an exceptional wife and daughter, and of course son-in-law and grandkids. I will miss our brief moments together, but will always smile when thinking of Elias. My sincere condolences....Johnny Simoudis.

Jim was the greatest brother-in-law. The greatest. I am thankful I got to tell him so. Jim would smile easily . He was surrounded by a beautiful, loving family; and a wonderful dear circle of friends. Michele and Jim belonged together, and they gave their all to each other. I thought Jim always retained that dry amusement and understanding to what life dishes out. Jim was a very strong man. “ Garden as if you’ll live forever. “ Jim had the strength to do that.

James was a talented Landscape Architect who I will miss as a friend and co-collaborator for over thirty-five years. We last talked over a year ago and I sensed he was struggling. He asked if I had any projects coming up and to remember that he would be available, if I did. Then he added, "But I don't know for how long", before smiling his impish grin.

Ms. Marian, Mr. Rick, Mr. Bob, and Michelle, I apologize for my belated condolences. I am sorry for loss for your precious son/brother. Christian welcomed me as my first friend when I moved to North Springfield. He introduced me to so much good. I got a lot of useful information about engineering and physics from him that I still carry with me. Unfortunately, we lost touch over the years and I just found out last year about his passing. I wish I was there to council him or just be a friend to him again. Your family can be confident he is in a better place.

Uncle Albert was the brother of my Mom, Caroline, and a great, supporting brother to her and the entire Friedrich Family. I loved how he always had a sense of humor and could enliven even the dullest of tales! I will never forget a drive along the East and as we went through tunnel after tunnel I asked him how are these built? He said it is easy, they first send in a little worm and grow the hole bigger with each critter. So much for engineering! Alice and Al were supportive of all the family members and their passing is a sorrowful time for us. Love going out to cousin Jay at this sad time. Jeannie


Barbara Hawkins posted on 4/26/21

My condolences to his family, I know he will be missed very much I regret not staying in contact with Sammy these past few years because he was a wonderful friend to have, I remember back to a couple of Bluegrass festival we all went to and people camping close to use asked if we had a bear over here because they heard one growling all night. Also he always had a smile, and loved that big black dog Buck, of which I received on of his pups. Sammy hope you and Buck are back together and having fun, love you brother ♥️

For some reason I was thinking of Devora today and decided to google your name and Todd’s obituary comes up saying he passed this month. I am Christopher Buchanan’s mom and knew Todd from the time he and Chris were little boys until I tragically lost him at his age of 26. Those two were on the phone talking to each other every day. I treasure the memories of those two munchkins going to school as no more then babies. I now live in Mechanicsville and plan on going to the cemetery in Newport News tomorrow to put flowers on Christopher’s grave as it is his birthday. My heart is heavy reading of Todd’s passing. I send my prayers to all the family

Chiles and Bernice were clients of mine when I owned a residential cleaning business. I thoroughly enjoyed my visits with them both and will always treasure my time with them. Chiles was a very kind, thoughtful, and interesting person. I can still see Chiles sitting at his desk at the computer working. He loved gardening and often enjoyed sitting out by the little pond in their backyard - they both worked to create their personal serene setting. Chiles lived a very full life and was very active in his local community and at W&M College. He often spoke about how proud he was of his children. I appreciated my time with Chiles and Bernice and always will.

Lovely, lovely Lois, it has been such an honor to know you and to have spent much time with you, at musical events and lunches, talking about all matters from family to world needs. You were a constant supporter of my own musical theatre programs for children, always attending the shows and dinner theatres, often bringing me flowers the day of the performances, and I will always be grateful for the wisdom and input you shared with me about that project. But my happiest memory of you will always be the kindness in your eyes, the depth of your words, and genuine love you had for life in general. These qualities were reflected in all that you did and said, and I am so blessed to count you as my dear friend. I'll remember and love you always, beautiful Lois. Love and peace preside in you, as always, for heaven has a new bright light with your presence there. Much love to you and yours, Cathy

I met Bob when I became a member of the State Council for Vocational Education and sworn in by then Governor Stephen E. Merrill (1993-1997) We had many good meetings working hard to improve the Vocational Programs of the day at the Vocational Centers and Technical Colleges. The Council also worked with the NH Legislature, Senators and Congressmen in Washington. We also sponsored conferences and workshops for Vocational Teachers in the NH Regional Vocational Centers. My family has an old farm in the Upper Village so Bob and I crossed tracks several times. Bob was a professional and great friend. My condolences to Gail and Bobs family

Dear Kmetz family, a name out of your past... I was shocked to read about Thomas' death, far too young to leave this beautiful world. I ran into Thomas years ago when I saw Dr MCMenamin. I recognized him immediately and called him "Walter"! He laughed and corrected me, but we had a good time recalling Walsingham memories. He was delightful to me at each appointment, and I am so terribly sorry we have lost such a good man. Please accept my sincerest condolences.

Uncle Bob was as full of life - and fun - as anyone I have ever met. It was always a gift to be in his orbit as he shared stories, songs, activities, silliness - what he loved - with whom he loved, which was just about everyone. He had a full life and I am glad that I, and my family, had been a part of it. We have the best memories.

I served with Stanley in the 2nd Armored Division at Fort Hood in Texas and we both served as Advisors in Iran in 1977-1978. Stanley was an Artillery Advisor in Isfahan and I was an Infantry Division Advisor in Mashad. I often called on Stanley to assist in advising the Division Artillery when they were conducting a live fire training exercise. A significant memory for me was that I once visited Stanley in Isfahan and he took me to see the ruins of the ancient Persian site of Persipolis. Stanley was a very fine Officer and served his country well.

He was a welcoming guy with a great sense of humor, and just an overall nice guy. I enjoyed running into him in town on occasion over the years.

A couple of years ago, during a temporary stay in Williamsburg, I had the precious privilege of being introduced to Michelle. I enjoyed conversing with her in French and talking about her native country. Her house was full of motifs that reminded me of that interesting place. I did also get to meet her caring daughter, Sandy. And I also had the fun encounter with her cute poodles who liked to sit by me while we engaged in interesting conversation. The subject she loved to talk about the most was the beautiful promise held out in the Bible. I was so moved when Sandy told me that during her last days Michelle would listen to audio recordings of Bible passages I read for her in French. Thinking of Michelle, I will always remember the spark in her eyes and her contagious smile - which will be missed only for a little while. It was a privilege to have known Michelle. (Below is the same message in French) Il y a quelques années, pendant une visite temporaire à Williamsburg, j'ai eu le précieux privilège d'être introduite à Michelle. J'ai beaucoup apprecié converser avec elle dans la langue française et parler de son pays natal. Sa maison était pleine des motifs qui m'ont rappelé ce emplacement intéressant. J'ai aussi rencontrée sa fille attentionée, Sandy. En plus, j'ai eu la rencontre amusante avec ses caniches mignons qui aimaient s'asseoir à côté de moi pendant que nous avions des discussions agréables. Le sujet qu'elle aimait le plus était la belle promesse contenue dans la Bible. J'ai été tellement emu quand Sandy m'a raconté que pendant ses derniers jours Michelle écoutait des enregistrements audio des passages scripturaires que j'avais lu pour elle dans la langue française. En pensant à Michelle, je me souviendrai toujours de l'étincelle dans ses yeux et de son sourire contagieux. Ceux ne sera absent que pour un petit moment. Ce fut un privilège pour moi d'avoir connue à Michelle.

I was so sad to learn of Denny's passing. He was a member of the Carefree Boat Club a few seasons and truly enjoyed an occasional delightful cruise with his crew, affectionately referenced as, "the Gang Plank". Denny also had a genuine concern and interest in my business there at Two Rivers Marina. He would visit me every spring in the pre-season to see how I was, how was my family, and ask, "so, what boats do we have this year?!" I recall him bringing the old Gang Plank brass bell along on nearly every boat outing to further the sentimental value he placed in boating with his dearest of friends. He will be missed. I'm so sorry for your loss. I pray that comfort only the Heavenly Father can grant will cover you as you grieve and even as you share fond memories with friends. God bless.

Dear Karen and Family, Jack and I hope that good memories will sustain you at this challenging time. We will always remember Len's enthusiasm for youth soccer. We enjoyed watching many games with him when both of our sons played in the early years of youth soccer in Williamsburg. Le was also a wonderful story teller and that also made the games interesting. Peace and Hope.


David Feldman posted on 2/19/21

Len was one of the senior leaders of the department when I arrived in 1989. I learned a lot from my conversations with him. One small example... To this day I will slyly remind my students not to write a kitchen sink answer to my very specific questions, i.e. don't put everything you memorized about a topic down on a blue book page hoping that some of it might just be part of a correct answer. I think he called it a garbage can answer. Len also taught me a lot about being a good department citizen and community citizen. He was one of a kind!

I’ve known Len since 1967 when my family moved to Williamsburg and we became neighbors in Kingswood. As a teenager, I used to babysit for Jay and Gail. I’ve always enjoyed bumping into Len and Karen around town through the years. I had no idea he led such an accomplished life although I’m not surprised. He was one of a kind! We have been Facebook friends for years and would always comment on each other’s posts. My deepest condolences to Karen, Jay, Gail and David and their families. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Teacher. Advisor. Mentor. Friend. When I went off to college, I was planning on majoring in sociology and French. My sophomore year my dad ‘strongly encouraged’ me to take an economics course. That microeconomics class in the fall of 1988, taught by Professor Len Schifrin, not only changed the trajectory of my college years; it provided me with a lifelong friend. Len Schifrin could be terrifying in the classroom. If you weren’t prepared for class, he would ask you to leave. If you were late, he said “That’s one. You get three then you are out.” (Years later I came to know how much he loved baseball.) Thus I was always prepared and never late. For the first time in my life, I was forced to study and do more than regurgitate memorized information. He would say “Don’t waste my time by dumping everything you know in a bluebook (the garbage can effect) hoping the answer is in there somewhere.” I spent a lot of time in Morton Hall and often Len and I would talk about subjects other than economics. One afternoon, he asked me who my senator and representative were back in Kentucky. I had no idea. He said, “The next time I see you, you should know that.” Since this was before google, I called my dad that night to find out! I took several more classes with him and during my senior year one of my classes met at his house where I got to meet his wonderful wife Karen. Looking back, I realize how blessed I was to be invited into their home, an opportunity that not many college students get. Thanks to the internet and social media, Len and I have been able to stay in touch. I visited him and Karen whenever I was close to Williamsburg. I was able to introduce my family to them, and during one visit, we discussed the value of a liberal arts education. That discussion sticks with me as my children are choosing their own college paths. Most recently we had been communicating about my involvement in the protests for racial justice. He would email me his thoughts about my experiences, always relating to an economic theory. On one of my FB posts, he commented, “Your courageous involvement makes me proud to have been your teacher and now for you to have been mine. I thank you for that. Thanks for proving that for me it has been never too late to learn.” At 19 years old, I could never have imagined that my choice in a college advisor would have such a profound effect on my life. Professor Schifrin, thank you for being my teacher, my advisor, my mentor, and my friend. I will miss you.

Wow. I still remember Mr. Schifrin's huge Econ 101 class from 40 years ago - including his transparency projector where he put up cartoons or Yoda in the middle of a lesson. RIP


Fred Federici posted on 2/17/21

In my freshman or sophomore year at W&M, I attended one of Prof. Schifrin’s lectures, but I then had to change my schedule and take the same class with a different professor. While I liked the new professor, I found that I had learned more in one hour in Prof. Schifrin’s class than I had in several days in the other class. Prof. Schifrin made no bones about holding his students to the highest standard. But he was also a fair and kind person. I learned this because I later had the great fortune of being among the W&M students that Prof. Schifrin taught in the summer of 1986 in Cambridge, England. Prof. Schifrin worked hard to make the classes he taught that summer memorable, which included arranging for our group to travel deep into the earth in a working coal mine. While Prof. Schifrin had earned the right to be addressed as “Doctor Schifrin,” as one of his students who had the greatest respect for him, I always thought the title of “Professor Schifrin” was the more meaningful title, as that was a title that he earned as a teacher of the highest rank. My sincere condolences to your family and to the William & Mary family at large.


Kate Slevin posted on 2/15/21

Bob and I were so sorry to learn of Len’s recent death. We knew him as both a neighbor and W&M colleague (Kate). He was an exemplary scholar and a much respected teacher of generations of students. An often repeated story among faculty was this: on the last day of class when students were given course evaluations Len would stride out of the lecture hall with these words to the students “By the way, arrogance is spelled with two r’s!” I once asked him if the faculty lore was true and he laughed heartily and said “Something like that.” Over the decades that I knew Len I learned that his tough exterior belied a kind heart. He was one of a kind. W&M is a better place because of Len Schifrin. His standards were high and he made no excuses for them. Condolences to Karen, David and his other family members.

We can take comfort in knowing that Tammy knew Jesus, and when her room was finally ready, she was called home to her eternal place in His Kingdom!

Tammy was as everyone has attested too very special. She always had time for you and would genuinely listen. Someone who lit up the room with that radiant smile, Fred is no different. You can tell when people know the Lord, you are drawn to them. At least I am. This is the case when it came to both Tammy and Fred. They are both very special and larger than life. Debbie

I am heartbroken but also know that her faith was her driver in every way and we all need to take the many lessons that we learned from her beautiful shining light and be grateful for all of the many special moments we shared with her. I am so blessed to have known her and can honestly say that my life is better now for some very important guidance she gave me in recent years. I worked with Tammy as a partner for many years on local litter and recycling projects. We were part of a close-knit community and this loss is being felt across all of Hampton Roads. She made a tremendous difference in the world and my heart goes out to her wonderful family (who she praised and gushed about incessantly!). Such a beautiful woman...I will see that big smile and those bright eyes and hear that sweet voice every time I need to listen for some inspiration... Prayers to the family and thank you for sharing her with us.

After graduation, I didn't get to see you much but the times I would run into you was precious. You were the sweetest person who loved GOD, her boys, and her family. For being taken away so young GOD must have special plans for you in Heaven. You will be missed, dear friend.

Tammy was a servant. I will always remember her as a servant with the heart of Jesus Christ. When help was needed to serve meals to the homeless--she was there. She often worked multiple shifts after a full day of work. If a friend needed comfort, she was there. In any situation she walked into, she ready to serve--ready to comfort. I will miss her terribly.

Oh my dear Mrs. Kellam, it was my privilege to be your student as Yorktown Elementary for 3rd grade and the first 3/4 combined grade. Later in life, I worked for the School District and got to show you how honored I was to have learned from you. I remember you copying pages of workbooks for me to do during the school months. You fed my thirst for knowledge and it continues to this day. I loved knowing that you saw my little sisters grow up and become adults...even becoming a client for Sommer at the nail salon. While we grieve your passing, we are glad that you are not in pain anymore. I look forward to seeing you again in Paradise. (John 5:28,29) Rest In Peace Mrs. Kellam!

This is such a heartbreaking loss. I have known Dottie since I was a kid. I was little sister, Dee's sidekick and the Atkinsons became my second family early on. I can remember tagging along with Dottie and Nelson when they were just dating and remember the joy the family experienced when Angela was born. She grew up to be a beautiful, sweet, caring person with such a big heart. She was funny and fun to be around. There was no doubt how much she loved her family. To watch her with Eric and Evan, you knew immediately that they were so special to her. The world has lost a bright shining light. Our prayers are with you Dottie, Ed, Lisa and the rest of the family. Love you all so much.

I am so sad to hear of Mrs. Geer's passing. She and Mr. Geer and their family were an important part of making me feel welcome at Episcopal High School and helping me understand there was more to a boarding school education than just school.

I loved Mr. Hall especially his chuckle. I am happy that he can now be with his beloved Reba and that his journey to join her wasn’t long and painful.

Sylvia was truly one of the most selfless women I have ever met. In the 20 years she lived at Episcopal High School with her Husband Lu she was as much a part of the community as he. She was always on hand when someone needed help. I am sorry that I have not been able to keep up with Sylvia since the death of her Lu, but her place in the Episcopal High School Community will be long remembered. My best to Marty, Matt and Will. You are lucky to have had such a presence in your lives.

Words cannot express my feelings at your loss of Lynn. She was a bright, shining being who shared her zest for life. She made my last years of teaching so much better better by her presence on our fifth grade team. I will cherish memories of our travels especially the trips to The Masters as well as our wine trip through Oregon. She is missed by many!


Deb Buckley posted on 1/21/21

Dear Bill and family, Lynn and I taught fifth grade at Dare and she was my daughter’s teacher. I was so grateful to her for taking my girl under her wing as we had relocated to Virginia and missed so many friends. I admired Lynn as a teacher as she instilled her love of reading in the children. Lynn loved shoes, and had quite a collection. Lynn’s love for her family was so apparent as she spoke of you all with adoration and a twinkle in her eye. My sincere condolences on the loss of your wife, mother, and grandmother.


Deb Buckley posted on 1/21/21

Dear Bill and family, I taught fifth grade with Lynn at Dare, and she also taught my daughter. Lynn took my daughter under her wing as we had relocated to Virginia and had to make all new friends. I admired Lynn as a teacher and her ability to stand up for her beliefs. My heart is saddened for your loss. She talked about her family with great love. Lynn was a woman of great faith, so I know she is with her savior in heaven. I wish you peace in your hearts.

Lowrey was one of the most cheerful guys I’ve ever known. No one enjoyed the dance floor more than Lowery. I recall him telling me about how worried he was about trying to make a good first impression on Carole’s father when he picked her up for their first date, things were going very well until Lowrey realized he had forgotten his wallet and he had to ask to borrow $5 for gasoline. Lowrey loved to tell that story and so many others. His good humor and cheerful manner were combined with solid character and a charitable spirit.

Myrtle Eva, Bob Sr. And Jr. gave me my first job when I was in high school. The values they taught me about public service served me throughout my working life as a librarian. They cared for their customers and I cared for mine. I am fortunate to have visited her before the pandemic and renew our friendship. She kept us all in a pleasant line and often brought us meals while we worked at Bob’s Sunoco on Richmond Road. I will always be grateful to the Baileys for the lessons I learned while working at Bob’s. Myrtle Eva was a joy to be with and a great teacher of life’s good lessons.

Mary Lee was not only an exemplary faculty member during my years at at Walsingham; she was a good friend to me. As our Guidance Counselor she helped us maneuver the college preparatory process, but she also looked out for our emotional well-being. She was a tremendous support and sounding board as I navigated my world after my parents’ divorce midway through my high school years. I did stop by WA several times after leaving Williamsburg to tell her how grateful I was for her gentle guidance, and she was just as welcoming each time. I loved her wry sense of humor, which I remember was present in all of her children whom I knew personally. Godspeed, Mary set an amazing example for humanity and left an incredible legacy.

I will truly miss his kind heart and generosity and he will always be in my family's heart and never be forgotten.

Dear Mrs. McNeel and all Lowrey’s family: I too saw the notice in The State today of Lowrey’s passing just before Christmas, 2020 and extend condolences but also congratulations on his full and varied life. “Who could ask for anything more?” the song goes. I don’t recall Lowrey was part of the Sigma Nu “PRANK” on Clemson in November, 1961 but several of us were. This year, if we make it to fall, will be the 60th anniversary of a trick that would be prohibited currently but was, we thought at least, clever and fun. I think Lowery enjoyed being part of this group "back in the day" while excelling in studies and learning valuable life skills. Take care, be safe.


Elizabeth Rice posted on 1/13/21

Thank you for putting this obit in the State. I remember Lowrey well from being a Sigma Nu at USC with my brother Dick McPherson. He was one of nicest people ever. He even took me to a sorority party one evening where I became sick and he was just a gentleman! It's funny the things you remember. He was a close friend to my brother who is deceased so this note is in part for him. A good life, well led. Sympathy and love to Carole and family. Elizabeth McPherson Rice

Dr. Hammer was my organic chemistry professor at CNU for two semesters. I have never studied so hard for a class in all my life. He definitely made a mark on my life. He was the only professor invited to my wedding and he actually showed up and it was in Leesburg Virginia. He left before I could speak to him. He did give me a nice pie dish for a gift. When labs would run late into the night we would sometimes talk about catfishing. I will never forget that grin he had and those dark frame glasses. I will never forget the red laser pointer he used or how his syllabus said pray for the dead, fight like hell for the living. The class-size would steadily decreased through the semester with less than half surviving. Today I was talking to a gentleman on the job that looked much like Dr. Hammer. That led me to look up his picture and then see his obituary. I hope that he knew Jesus so that one day I can see him again. Blessings!

I may not have known Bud as long as others, but in the short time I’ve worked with him, he became family to me. I was Bud’s caregiver. Every day I came to work, Bud would always make me feel welcome and would have the biggest smile on his face. Each day I never knew what to expect from Bud. From his unexpected jokes to his rants about Nancy Pelosi, he definitely knew how to get a laugh out of me. I felt honored and privileged to have the chance to know such a kind hearted and genuine person. Bud was truly one of a kind and I will miss him very much.

I love and miss Popeye. He was my 2nd Daddy growing up. I remember how he would read a book every night to Toni and I. I remember all those bike rides we would take through Jamestown and the long walks through Colonel Williamsburg every summer. Popeye and Grandma would also treat Toni and I with a lovely day at Bush Gardens and Water Country USA. I miss our dinners at night and Popeye sitting at the end of the table right in front of the window that looked outside the backyard. Popeye was literally out cutting grass and trimming trees earlier this year. That's how strong of a man he was. The one thing I'll miss the most was him blessing our dinner with a prayer every Thanksgiving and Christmas. The last conversation I had with Popeye ended with him telling me how he was just thinking about me the other day of a memory of us. He said, "I remember how you would hold my hand while your Dad and I were walking through a Home Depot store." I'll never forget that

Paul was a friend and a protector, especially the year we attended 8th grade. If you were his friend, you were his friend. I eventually left Williamsburg and moved back to Georgia.

When we were in school, Paul was my protector (especially in the 8th Grade). We have been friends since then... Even though I moved away from Williamsburg.

He named every one of them without pause and gave me stories of each one. I will remember his quiet devotion to Yoshiko. I remember him as a devoted member of the Williamsburg Presbyterian Church. I remember talking trucks and tractors with him. I especially remember him at my own father’s death telling me you lost your father, but I will always be here for you. He was a great uncle. We will miss him dearly.

My Uncle Kenny always had positive things to say. He may be talking to God as i write. When it came to Family he was always there. I will remember that when my dad was overseas Kenny came over to help my mom-his sister-fix a toy for my brother on Christmas. And also with the heating system. Kenny thank you for being You!

Uncle Mack, nothing is the same without you. I keep trying to go on but it's one thing after another that keeps showing me how much I miss you, your voice, your words, your wisdom. The helping hand, the open ear, and knowing it will be ok. Knowing we are not alone and that family always came first. Everything is harder. I miss you and I love you.

Mr. Limerick was a good mentor for me to understand the Work Order System, while I was working in the Colonial Williamsburg General Accounting Office. I learned about his passing away just today on December 24, 2020. I wish him my best good will, after his long meaningful life for all people around him. (I could not know, as I am living in France since 30 years.)

Hi, Mary Ann. Very sorry to hear about Bill. I always enjoyed times together with him, though they were brief.


David Pribble, Former Hospital Director posted on 12/17/20

I had the pleasure of working with Anne, her mother and a brother at Eastern State Hospital. They were a very caring family and both Anne and her mother were RN's providing nursing and patient care services. Anne was special in so many ways and worked hard to provide transition planning and services so that patients could return to their respective communities of origin. Anne always had a smile and a hug for her coworkers and everyone loved working with her. She is now with her best friend, Caroline, and I am sure they are enjoying one another's company. I will miss Anne. Deepest sympathies are extended to Regina and all the family.

I was always happy to see Mark working when I entered Hookers. He was always pleasant and helpful and more than willing to help make me a better fisherman. His stories and tips were always helpful and he made my family and I feel like he was always happy to see us. On more than one occasion he went out of his way to help us. He stayed late and or offered to if we couldn’t make it before closing allowing us to bait up and have many great fishing trips. Once while en route to fish as we stopped to get bait, my son realized his license was expired and Mark went far and beyond to help us get a license on line so we could continue on our eagerly awaited trip. On other occasions he also took time to listen and talk with me about struggles I was having and always provided great advice. I am blessed to have known him and will always be thankful for his help and kindness.


Ken & Janet Grunst posted on 12/11/20

Little did Janet or I know when we moved to Williamsburg that we would find such great friends (and next-door neighbors) in Bud and Carole Allen. For over 14 years we have enjoyed special times together. Sharing glasses of wine, having a great golf rivalry with Bud (he usually won), attending Christmas concerts together at the Chapel, and even watching an occasional Detroit Tiger Game (and you really had to be a fan and friend to stay for all 9 innings), has given us many special memories. You continue to be in our prayers, Carole. You have been a faithful caregiver.


Denise Spreen posted on 12/10/20

So many memories! Most vivid ones are your wonderful smile and infectious laugh. Shared memories of our CURSILLO weekends, and God’s love and blessings. Taught me that you don’t pollute a good gin with tonic water,too.

Fran Pones posted on 12/8/20

Bob, you were more like my brother than a brother-in-law. You took me out and showed me how to drive, you showed me how to walk in my first pair of heels (grammar school graduation) and fell down the porch chairs. After I got married, the 4 of us would do a lot of things together. We'd play cards and you would drive me nuts by telling me which cards I still had in my hand. We'd ride the train together to go to work downtown. You were such a cheerful morning person and liked to talk, and I was not a cheerful morning person. You loved to aggravate me. You were a wonderful husband and father. My heart breaks losing both of you this year, but I have such wonderful memories. Take care of my sister. Love you both!

Professor Bynum left a lasting, life altering impression on my life. I will never forget his classes, and in particular his Computer Organization, of which is self-published and so called "Magnum Opus" was the centerpiece. His enthusiasm for the topic and the class was tangible, from his clear pride in the effort of the work to his distinctive yell of "Victory!" with arms and V-shaped pose from the front of the class. I was lucky enough to have him as a my advisor, a title he was generous enough to continue to honor even after graduation, giving early (and very correct) career guidance. Academically, his teachings are my favorite from my time at W&M, and his Magnum Opus still sits on my shelf as the one college textbook I saved because of its memories. My condolences on the family's loss, and know that his spirit will live on in the students he impacted and the difference he made.

Dearest Robinette, Clearing out files I came across your beautiful xmas card from 2012. I am so very sorry for your loss and that I was not aware until now. Gerry loved Brad like a brother. Often referring to him as "Uncle" and still to this day, our children will refer to him as such. Perhaps we can pick up the pieces and re-establish that wonderful friendship from long ago that began with Brad introducing himself at a "cotillion" we attended as newly weds ...peace and love

I was just looking up 'old friends' and discovered Mike's obituary. Mike and I met each other in the No. Va. Criminal Justice Academy's first 'Combined Sheriff's Training Program' (along with Rick, Scott, Are and others). We became fast friends and became known as 'Mutt and Jeff'. (I'm 5'7" vs Mike at 6'8"). We became a perfect combo for responding to calls. Mike's deep love of humanity tempered my spirit and working with him made me a better person. In this time of police unrest and conflict, Mike is deeply, deeply missed....especially by me.

I have to admit that I feel really odd writing digitally, rather than in a formal note… But I think all of you will get this at once through this medium. Your Mom - and your Dad - were a force of nature. Their warmth and inclusiveness were so very genuine and I know the young people they touched were nourished and guided by their love and encouragement. I know I was. I just wanted to take this opportunity to say “Hello” and to thank Lois for taking me under her wing. She helped to “shape me” during my teenage years and gave me some of the happiest and most confidence-building moments I had. Bobby, Ann, Bruce and Jonathan were all big players. I know we have all had our life-challenges, but I hope you are well and happy. Lois was one of my “life gifts” and I thank you for sharing. Love, MaryEllen

Barbara Converse was great. She was always well dressed, and always very neat and tidy. She had a such a "can do" attitude. She adored her husband, Hank. I had the privilege of first meeting Barbara when I sold her home on Hunting Cove and when she purchased her new home on Avery Circle. She took on every project with such positiveness. I know she really enjoyed working on her watercolors and craft projects in the converted upstairs bedroom to an art studio. Barbara will certainly be missed.

My condolences to Barbara and all of Kenny's family. He was a great person and for years, one of my best friends. We graduated from Poquoson High School together and years later we both worked for NASA. Kenny was a groomsman in my wedding and I have many memories of road trips we took to see the Redskins play. Kenny will be missed by us all.

My Mother always said that if you make one good friend in your life you have accomplished something, Jim Mitchell was my friend and neighbor for 23 years, as a friend I loved him, as a man I respected his love of family, especially his granddaughter Michelle, Michelle was his Heart. He had such fun with her humor and always tell me something funny she did or said. He was always in a good mood and just about every day he had a story to tell that was related to what I had just said He was always there for his family and neighbors, always friendly to all who entered his daily life, always a" How You Doing" to everyone. I don't recall him ever being in a bad mood. He was always busy doing something, and if he saw me doing something the wrong way he would come over and show me the correct way, like trimming boxwood I never quite got that clip, clip, clip down. I could go on and on talking about Jim, I shall miss him, he was such a part of my daily, however, I believe he was a blessing to anyone who came in contact with him. Rest in Peace Dear Friend.

I knew John throughout our professional careers, as our paths crossed often. The Harbour family is an institution in the field of historical administration, and I was inspired by his style, his values, and the huge difference he made to the work we do. My sincere sympathies to the Harbour family.

"Grampy", affectionately referred to by his granddaughter Michelle and all her friends at The Life Skills Learning Center and The E 3 Center... Your gracious and tireless service to us will always be cherished and remembered. From driving us here, there, and everywhere, to constructing and landscaping our awesome centers, in addition to your infectious joke telling that left us in stitches... all will forever draw a smile. You are greatly loved and will be greatly missed. Rest well my friend.

Sorry to learn of Jim’s passing. He was a special guy, always helpful and cheerful. When helping me one time fixing something on my car, he asked me to get him a wrench. When I gave him mine, he told me to put it back in Danielle’s toy box and he got his own. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Jim, my name is Linda Cross and Amy was my best friend in high school. I have been looking for her for years on line and even spoke to Longwood. They suggested I write a letter and they would forward to her. I did, but never heard back. I just found her obituary over the weekend and I am so heartbroken. I so wanted to meet up with her again but just couldn't find her. If you are up to it, I would love to talk to you about her. I have missed her for so many years. Please send me an email and I will forward my phone number. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful, free spirit person and had a heart of gold.

I saw this poem recently and adapted it in memory of my sister, Joan….. ….When tomorrow starts without you, I try to understand That an Angel came and called your name, and took you by the hand; The angel said your place was ready in Heaven far above, And that you would have to leave behind all those you dearly love. But when you walked through Heaven’s Gate, you felt so much at home, For God looked down and smiled at you, and told you “Welcome Home”. So when tomorrow starts without you, Don’t think we’re far apart, for every time I think of you, you are right there in my heart.

I just wanted to correct that it is John E. Harbour. His mother was my High School English teacher and she would never have forgiven me if I got it wrong.


Maynard Benjamin posted on 10/19/20

It is hard to believe that John Harbor has passed away. We enjoyed many years of friendship and he was a man that you looked up to. We all called him Evans and later John when he became so famous. He was a historian of the Fifes and Drums of Williamsburg and the first leader of the Corps. He helped memorialize our history and helped many of us along the way as we grew. John was one of those that came into and out of your life and he influenced all of us. He will be missed.

Joan will forever be in my mind.....From working together at Target to our monthly dinners and shopping outings and our weekly calls. She was a trip, always humerous and strong as hell, even when you just knew she wasn't feeling good she still knew how to make someone else smile. I'm truly blessed that she was a part of my life even though it was just a few short years. I find comfort knowing she is no longer suffering. Rest easy Joanie. ❤

My Nanny was one of rhe sweetest, most gentle and kind souls I will ever have the pleasure of knowing. I was blessed to have her in my life. I will miss her dearly but will cherish so many happy growing up, going to Busch Gardens, watching Price Is Right, talking to her about anything comfortably, baking and sharing recipes, watching and enjoying Zach grow up, laughing, hugging, watching her make my Halloween costumes as a kid...just having her here in my life! I don't think she met anyone that walked away and said, "I don't like Eva!" Everyone liked Eva! But we LOVED her and the loss is great. I miss her sweet smile and warm hugs and the way she always called me sweetheart and she has only been in Heaven for 7 days. I'm sure she is the most beautiful Angel, walking hand in hand with my Granddad and her son Denny. And I am sure they will greet me when I get there. RIP Nanny, my heart is forever broken.

First met Stan at Le Yaca the day before my job interview. Within 5 minutes we were talking about bourbon, with Stan taking notes. I asked him a few years later about it and he said that within the first 5 minutes I'd decided that you were to be hired/made an offer, and I wanted to get as much information from you about bourbon. Having moved back to Louisville, KY, Stan was the only one who regularly kept in touch from my contacts in Williamsburg - used to get cutting from magazines and newspapers regarding bourbon/whiskey/rum followed by a call to discuss article a couple of weeks later. Received one as recent as early Oct. Still remember his words of wisdom when I was leaving the company "never burn a bridge, never reveal a source". Will open that Puerto Rican rum, which I'd promised to sip with him on Louisville stop over, while driving to Greenwood, IN.

I write this to honor the memory of Stan Sutliff and to celebrate his life. His life touched ways we may not fully realize...his kindness, compassion, service, wisdom, and his goodness- strong, steadfast and true. I first met Stan 30 years ago in St. Louis at a Saturday morning sports fellowship gathering at Bonhomme Presbyterian Church. My first impression of meeting Stan was a feeling of open, exuberant energy. We learned we had both grown up in Indiana and shared so many common experiences and interests, including a faith in God, the outdoors and discussing philosophical questions we never answered. Through the church and on his won he went on to join organizations caring for hurting people and mentoring students. Stan in his heart grabbed life, whether in the outdoors, serving others or philosophizing, and was always grounded in his love for and pride in his family. I remember visiting Stan’s St. Louis home one Saturday morning and seeing him like a happy whirlwind collecting and washing the family laundry. Over the years I learned from him in great detail about happy family sailing and rafting vacations and the proud accomplishments of his daughters. I enjoyed a true, deep friendship with Stan and that I can never lose. Even after years apart Stan and I picked up with each other right where we left off. Losing such a good friend who knew me and what I was over 30 years ago feels like I am burying part of my life, part of my history. A part of me has died and has gone with him but not the comfort and memories of having had such a friend. Stan, may you rest in peace.

Stan always had a great story to tell. I admired his loyalty and quick wit. I learned a great deal about business from him and his recipes and the food network helped me to be a better cook! Sometimes he’d share his food and made my day. Stan loved his family and talked non stop about his girls and his grandchildren. Stan lived his life his way and will always be remembered as an open book, passionate about all his hobbies and the dogs don’t get me started! I hope the family cherishes these memories and I’ll hold up my glass tomorrow because it is 5 o’clock somewhere!



Dana R Hodson posted on 10/16/20

"I should reach back out to Mr. Steffey," I said to myself. Sadly it seems I missed that opportunity. One of my favorite teachers, he always called me "Spielberg" and told me I was "destined to do great things." I only hope that, two decades later, my accomplishments are even a fraction of enough to warrant the oddly-specific pedestal he put me on. Rest in peace, you wonderful man.

I'm not sure if they came for the fitness or because the instructor Lane was such a sweetheart ! After workout we would all retire to the coffee room to read newspapers ,drink coffee and talk about what ever .

Ethel, dear dear friend ... I miss you so very much! Our times together were always precious and too short - thank you for being my bowling partner in crime, and our driving the waiter nuts because we wanted our toast dark! and for gifting me with many presents; beautiful basket that holds my towels, figurine from England, and two that you made (I never got one of your dolls!) - and the loving care everyday when you came to my home to make sure I ate and had grapes before I was hospitalized with double pneumonia. Years and years of your counsel and friendship. We laughed a lot and will always remember more than I'm writing here. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Give William and Sir Andy hugs, too. Ethel, you are loved always. 12Sep2020 Gentle as you go ...

Greg and I became friends in 1975. We roller skated together and later worked together at Rollerama. After graduating high school in 1981, we moved to Tampa, Florida. We were 18 and trying to make it on our own. We talked about what the future held for us, what career paths we would take. Greg was one of those men who truly lit up a room when he walked in. He was a good man. I'm going to miss him.


Mark Flanary posted on 9/4/20

I’ve known Greg for 13 years he was my salesman and employee during that time. We had many good times together. He genuinely cared about his family, friends, job and customers. He was a good friend with an infectious smile. I will miss him and his smile.


John Ruffin posted on 9/4/20

To the Hornsby family, Bobby, Bruce, and John, the loss of your mother is heartbreaking for all who knew her, yet the memory of her remarkable life is truly a celebration. It's been an honor to know her and all of you from the time I was a teen living around the corner on Indian Springs Rd. Her community contributions are well noted by others, and I particularly remember her championing of the Up with People spirit and the creation of Sing Out Williamsburg. You all rocked, and the talent of course continued. Your mother was one of the principal speakers at my own mother's memorial service, as they had shared a long and deep friendship. I also counted your mother as a personal friend, loved the occasional shared Facebook posts with her, and she never lost touch with the real world. Lois Hornsby was one of a kind and will be lovingly remembered by all who had the delight to know her. My deepest condolences to all, John Ruffin


Maris Segal and Ken Ashby posted on 9/4/20

Lois Hornsby was a beautiful person inside and out! She always greeted us with her bright smile and always in a lovely stylish outfit. Her wisdom and legacy will forever be felt in Williamsburg and beyond. We shared a history and commitment to engaging young people in service leadership through music and performing arts with Up with People. Ken and I send the Hornsby family our warm love during this time.


Will Hummel posted on 9/4/20

Dear Hornsby Family On behalf of The Rotary Club of Williamsburg, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the Hornsby Family for the loss of your mother. She was a pillar in our community and her concern and caring for those less fortunate was an inspiration to all. Her support of education, love of the arts and focus on minority achievement were abundantly evident in the generosity she displayed. We would be remiss in not mentioning our past Rotary president Robert Hornsby who was an exemplary community leader as well. Both of them were two of Williamsburg's finest citizens and truly embraced our Rotary motto of Service Above Self. In sympathy, Will Hummel President The Rotary Club of Williamsburg


Margaret (Peggy) McComb posted on 9/3/20

Lois was such a loving, friendly, caring friend and a remarkable woman. She was a faithful supporter in all aspects of our Christian Science church. It is amazing how many organizations she supported and took active roles in and is so appreciated. My heartfelt condolences to all of the family.

Dudley escapes the back yard and came into mine. I live a street over on Cary. My niece went to return him - she was a law student at the time, since graduated. We had been playing banjo and mandolin in our backyard on the ravine. Lois and her husband took Dudley back, and invited my niece in. Told her their son was a musician and was interested in my niece’s law studies. Very kind people.

Meredith Collins posted on 9/2/20

Joe and I are so very sorry to hear of Lois’ passing. Lois was a woman of purpose – of family, education, diversity and many other worthwhile pursuits in life. I remember one time I took her to lunch and she directed me to Matoaka Elementary. At first I wasn’t sure why we were there, but then it became apparent that we were going to enjoy lunch at those little tables in the children’s cafeteria, sharing our lunchtime with young children who were just starting their lives. And that was not the first time that Lois had been there. The folks who worked in the kitchen greeted her by name and welcomed her when we came in. Who knows how many things Lois did that fell under the radar. I only know despite her visibility and contributions to our community, there was a woman who also quietly lived her truth.


Leah Ohman posted on 9/2/20

My deepest sympathy is extended to each member of the Hornsby family on the passing of your beautiful loved one. When I came to Williamsburg to work in the school system in 1961, Lois was one of the first individuals in the community to extend a welcome to me. Once that you met her, she made you feel that everything was going to be 'all right". She was compassionate, a community leader and most of all a LADY at all times. Because of her, she helped to make Williamsburg a better community for all residents. GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU!

Lois was an example of genuineness, thoughtfulness, and inclusiveness that all of us should aspire to in our lives. A wonderful lady who always made anyone she spoke to feel like they were the most important person in the room. She gave you 100 percent attention when she was with you. She could be funny, introspective and a little bit of an extrovert all at the same time. Of all of the LOL's I have known (Little Old Ladies) she is definitely my favorite and she will be sorely missed. She will be remembered by me always.

I met Lois and Bruce through my neighbor in Newport News, Mary Raney, who knew Lois and family through the Christian Science Church in Williamsburg when Mary lived in Williamsburg. Mary and I went to hear Bruce in Norfolk and Mary introduced my to Lois and Bruce. Alan Diamonstein asked me to join him at a political evening at Bruce's house. Bruce showed me his room of musical achievements and then he went to jam with a musician in Norfolk but invited any of us who play the piano to his piano a workout which we did. Lois invited me to ask my grandson Louis to be part of the children's Shakespeare Festival. So all of my stick horses were used on stage as the theme of the Shakespeare play had horse back riders galloping around. Lois attended the Yoder Barn plays I acted in before CNU took over the Barn and John David Yoder's house that he lived in with his family. I attended many of Bruce's concerts and the ones on the lawn of the Museum in Williamsburg. Lois--such a remarkable person and championed so many important causes that truly needed addressing.

So sorry to learn of the passing of Lois Hornsby. As a teenager, I was often called to babysit her three boys.


Debra Dike posted on 8/29/20

Your mother will be missed! My brother was in “Up with people” years ago. Lois was an institution in Wmsbg. I’m sorry for your loss.

What a beautiful, gracious woman who just brightened the world every day with her smile and did so much good along the way. I consider myself very lucky to have known her.


Elaine Cochakos Liner posted on 8/28/20

From the first time I met Mrs. Hornsby back in our “Sing Out” days, I knew she was someone special. She was amazingly kind and was always welcoming. Another time during my high school years I was at her home for a party for one of the school clubs. She was so gracious and open. These were my thoughts of Lois Hornsby when I was a teenager in the late 1960’s. Now, at 68 years old this is how I still remember her. My condolences to the entire Hornsby family.

I am truly saddened to hear of her passing. I recall fondly those times when she would drop by the middle school and just visit. It was always an interesting conversation.

I remember Mrs. Horns-bee fondly from elementary school to middle school and high school, from interactions with her at Williamsburg Players, and have always thought of her as someone I admired and appreciated. She gave to all of us in the community and her presence will be missed. My condolences and sincere heartfelt sympathy to Bruce, Jonathan, and Bobby.

Bobby, Bruce and Jonathan: As you know your mother was a very special lady. Got to know her well in 1966 when I was in Sing Out and performing with the group at different venues including the Virginia Beach Dome. My condolances to you all for your loss.

I remember her being instrumental in organizing our "Sing Out" "Up With People" performances when I was a teenager attending James Blair High School (Class of 1968). For me, performing in the shows, was something I will always remember, and I thank her for making that possible.

I'm so saddened to hear of Wanda's passing. I have a lot of fond memories of her from church, the marina and all of the good cooking. I remember her, me and my grandma Anna Nixon spending time together not only on Sunday afternoon after church but at other times as well. I'm sure her and my grandma are having a grand time with their Lord. My heart is heavy because she is no longer on earth but I'm so happy she is Home and catching up with friends and family that went Home before. May God bless the family at this time.

I was a one-week beginning assistant professor of mathematics at Cal State Long Beach in 1961. My task was math course placement of about 300 high school graduates. I placed Roger in trigonometry which he hadn't taken in HS. Then I looked at the 700 trigonometry entrance test scores. The highest score was by Roger Villecco! I took him for an interview with Feynman at Cal Tech. Cal Tech waived his tuition and allowed him to transfer to Cal Tech with sophomore standing. From then until my retirement in 1988 I never encountered another Roger Villecco. He stayed in contact with me through his time in the Navy.

Willie was a true professional. If he had to arrest you he always found something positive to say about the defendant. He was particularly good with juveniles and took time with them to explain what was happening both before and after court. I often commented that they were lucky because they had been stopped by the nicest police officer in James City County. He will be missed.

Bob, the first person who greeted me for my interview at the Manor Club. He instantly made me feel welcomed and already part of the team. As he did myself he greeted everyone with a smile and twinkle in his eyes. During the 7 years I worked at Manor Club Bob and I developed a friendship that I will always hold close to my heart...he was Bobster to me, a nickname I would call him. The last time I saw Bob was last August when I visited the Manor Club, I am so glad I was able to give him a hug. Our last text was just a couple months ago and it breaks my heart to know he is gone. I believe he is in a better place and know one day we will meet again. Deepest condolences to Bob's entire family. A good man, may he Rest In Peace. ❤️

He never told a guest or associate no, he always worked to make it happen and was part of the "Diamond Club" for the number of "WAY TO GO's" he received from our guest and owners. He has left a big hole here at Manor Club, but leaves us with many memories and lots of love!

On Wednesday August 12th we lost a great person who will be dearly missed. JImmy was a role model for us all. He had a great giving and loving personality, a wonderful outlook on life,and was a superb husband and father. For me, I have lost a brother whom i deeply loved and admired. Jim always knew what he wanted to achieve in life, He chased his dreams, had a passion for living and most importantly had perspective that was truly admirable. He worked hard, had a great career, great family and a real passion for his interests, which centered almost exclusively on MOPAR and MUSIC! Great things he loved and which he so openly shared with others. These are memories I will always cherish and will deeply miss. I am so happy he is at peace. I know he had many things on his list of life's to do's, and while a few of them might not have been completely checked, when you put it all together, his accomplishments, especially in the face of challenges are more than most anyone accomplishes. An inspiration for me and for all of us. I Love you greatly, will miss you deeply, and will always be thinking of you. Love you brother

I will always remember their kindness and sincerity towards me. Therese, I know the pain of losing your parents at the same time. Like mine, who vowed that only death can do them part, they too did not allow death to separate them. They have ascended together so their love story continues in heaven. I will have Tito and Tita in my heart and pray that their souls Rest In Peace.

Ed will be sorely missed. I so enjoyed his engaging company and inquisitive mind and we'll never forget has several visits to Tuckahoe where he taught us about our outbuildings and especially the portico over the north entrance later destroyed by hurricane Isabel. He spent several hours crawling around inside to document it and it's history of being expanded. We affectionately called it Ed's dog house.

So sorry to hear of Ed's passing. Ed's grandmother and my grandmother were sisters, and as I understand it my mom and Ed's mom were close growing up in rural Virginia. I remember Ed and his family meeting several times a year throughout our childhood usually at Christmas and family reunions. Over the years I have been fascinated in following Ed's career and I have done a great deal research of our family history.

Ed and I got acquainted through my participation in the Architectural Review Board. Ed was always willing to lend his expertise and offer his opinion on preservation topics here in Williamsburg. I valued his advice and lcame to respect his wisdom and integrity. I am saddened by his premature and untimely death at what I have come to believe is the best time of life.

I came to know Ed through his generous sharing of expertise and enthusiasm regarding the Dudley Digges house as a possible home of the Bray School, and then too through his extraordinary publication on and knowledge of Zuni pottery. His passing is a tragedy on so many levels and to so many people--such a devastating loss. My heart goes out to his wife and family.

Lucy Pollard-Gott posted on 7/31/20

I have thanked God so many times for His good Providence in bringing me to meet Mary when our daughters were both in kindergarten at Maurice Hawk School. Mary and I would wait at the door together, looking for our daughters Elizabeth and Katie, and for Mary's son Chris (then in 3rd grade), to walk down the school's long hallway at the end of each school day. It was a beautiful time of getting acquainted and finding all that we had in common. It was also a such a pleasure getting to know Katie and Chris. After our girls finished 1st grade, they were assigned to different schools (Katie stayed at Hawk and my daughter went to Dutch Neck for the next two years). Mary and I decided to keep in touch by going out for lunch at least once a month and phone chatting in between times. That began a tradition that continued all the way to the present, and thankfully our families became close friends and shared in more milestones of school and daily life than I can name. Mary and Bob have been wonderfully generous friends in so many ways and on so many precious occasions, and our children have had the blessing of knowing each other well and sharing their own deep friendship. When Mary and Bob fulfilled the dream of living in Virginia, in the heart of Williamsburg, our lunches stopped but we still had special visits and many phone calls, and truly our friendship was closer than any geographical distance could change. I still feel so connected to Mary, as if she were just a phone call away. I think daily of Bob, Katie and Paul, Chris and Lucy, and the many friends who were blessed to know Mary, the best of friends a person could have in this life. We all send our love to Mary's family and friends, along with prayers for their consolation. I believe that Mary will be praying for all of us, and for me that is a great comfort. With much love, Lucy and Richard Gott

To all of Jean's family and loved ones, I have so many memories of Jean and Dennis and Patty and Debbie. I was eleven years old when I started babysitting the girls and enjoyed their family in our neighborhood and at church. I had the opportunity to sing in the church choir with Dennis and loved to hear him sing. Jean was the epitomy of what a woman could be and do in a lifetime. I empathize with your pain at her passing and hope loving thoughts will help you through missing her so much. Love and warm wishes to all of you at this time and always. Sherry Bentley Turpin

I had the privilege and pleasure of knowing Ann Madonia for 20 plus years. She was an art enthusiast and aficionado. She was intellectually astute, vibrant, and most passionate about her work. She sustained and supported young art students and artists. She had passion and verve! Her design and orchestration of the Georgia O’Keefe show at the Muscarelle was a thrilling life and professional achievement. She grew up in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York. She will long be remembered, honored, and missed. Her sister, Barbara, and niece, Nicole will honor her memory. Indeed she was “one of a kind.”


Jim and Fran Whitney posted on 7/25/20

We have so many fond memories of Jean - watching her singing in the Choir at WBC, sitting in the Pew with Pete Freeman and me, and a wonderful invitation to dinner at the Landing. Jean was a dear, sweet Lady and we have missed her presence at WBC. Now she is with her beloved Dennis.

So saddened by the sudden passing of John, fortunately Maureen and I spent a few days with John and Lori remembering old times, a few great days of fun and laughter. When out, as usual, John would be very engaging with strangers, if they had kids it was like the three of us didn't exist we have so many happy memories! My deepest condolences to the entire family God bless

Patty and Debbie- As sad as I was to learn of the passing of your mom, I got a smile on my face at the memory of what a loving, gracious lady that she was. I would so look forward to babysitting you sweet, talented, piano playing (!) girls, but the bonus to coming to your home was to visit with your lovely mom and dad. My sympathy goes to you girls, and certainly to your whole family. Love, Jeannine

I am grateful to have known George as a coach during my freshman-year introduction to rowing at the College of William & Mary. Rowing demands patience, timing, and maturity. None of these were in abundant supply among our gaggle of loud, clumsy 18-year olds. George's 5:00am lessons, delivered with soft-spoken persistence and good humor, were not lost on our Novice 8+. The women of the "heavy 8" are among my closest friends today. Thank you, George, for sharing your love of sport and life-long learning.


Lynn Garrett posted on 7/23/20

I'm sorry for your great loss. I met George when I worked at Haynes Furniture in Va. Bch about 40 years ago. There was a problem, if I remember correctly, with some wing chairs that had been purchased and an issue with an exchange. I worked with the family to correct the issue, and in the meantime found out that he worked for CBN, where my wife worked. I had been trying to get a job at CBN for years in an art capacity with no avail. A couple of years later, George initiated, with Nat Tate, and Dick Lovelace, introducing a perfect fit for me managing the Scenic Warehouse at CBN, which I began Feb of 1985. I often dropped in to see him and have such fond memories of his friendship during that time. I'm grateful of how God used him to channel my life, what a blessing he was to me. God bless you all, heaven has received a jewel. Grateful to Jesus for making a way for us to be received. I'll continue to pray for comfort for your family.

Dr. Young was and always will be special to me. I was one of his first patients in 1960 when he moved to Rolla, MO. I was 16 years old and on June 11th, 1960, was in a severe gasoline explosion. My body suffered 2nd & 3rd degree burns over most of it. Dr. Young was my doctor and I survived. My case was written up in medical history. I am 77 years old and have lived a wonderful, happy life, thanks to this courageous man. He kept me alive. I will always carry a place for Dr. Young in my heart. Such a special human being.

We are so sorry for your loss. I was telling Katie the other day that it meant so much to Nick and me that Mary was so enthusiastic about our wedding in 2015. At the time, I wasn't even sure if my own parents were attending. Her kindness helped sustain me through some very sad moments. I will never forget that and I will always be grateful. I was so honored to have met Mary at Katie and Paul's wedding. I remember seeing her at the top of the staircase outside the room where the ceremony was held. We made eye contact and both smiled. It was one of those smiles that lights up a room, just like Katie's.

Truly one of the kindest, calmest, humblest men I’ve ever met. I recall meeting him at work once, and never have I met someone who was so clearly, universally esteemed by those around him. You just knew immediately he was special. He introduced me to the wonderful board game “Settlers of Catan”. I well-remember the glint in his eye as he said “would you like to learn?” Graciously ruthless in that game—truly unbeatable—but gave me a set of the game afterwards—and I still think of him every time I pull the copy he gave me to play now. He doubtlessly touched countless lives. He certainly touched mine. I’m without words, Yvonne and family, for the acuteness of your loss. He was a great man.

I met George and Yvonne back in 1978 when I first started going to Berean Chapel. They both struck me immediately as people of character. They exuded the kindness and love of Christ! When I think of George I’m reminded of 1Cor. 11:1 “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” He knew what it meant to follow Jesus from his heart, mind, soul and strength! He made me feel accepted. Both Rose and I valued all those things about him and more and it’s why we asked him if he would marry us. What a blessing that was. I’m sorry for your loss. I know he will be missed and remembered. What must it have been like to hear those faithful words uttered “Well done good and faithful servant enter into your Fathers rest! I wish I could’ve been an angel In heaven when George and Jorge meet for the first time there, what a glorious reunion that must have been! So it will be for us all one day. May Gods grace and peace fill you’re entire family to over-flowing, May God grant you His comfort as He wraps His loving arms around you all. In JESUS name amen!

From the words of a song, "Friends are friends forever if the Lord is Lord of them" is how I will always remember Beverly. Although Bruce and she moved from Pennsylvania when he was in the service our friendship remained strong. We shared the same faith, thought the same thoughts and held onto the same values. Whenever we would visit via the telephone it was though we were living next to one another as neighbors. Our friendship will go on, for one day we will again visit for eternity. My condolences go to Bruce, Sandy, Harvey, Kelly, Stephen, Bev's extended family and all her many friends. I keep all of you close to my heart for as Beverly's Mom said, "We are family".

I know that the family has had to watch her decline over the past few years - my memories will always be of her as a teenager and young woman - young forever.

I love you uncle mack, I miss you every day. Its very hard trying to keep rolling without you and without your wisdom for all the things you help me get through each day. I hope that you help guide us to do everything you want. Wish you were here. I still can't believe this is all happening and that we'll never get to see you in physical form or hear your voice and know whatever you say is because you care. Alot of us are missing you and would do anything for one more day, one more moment with you. I love you and swear I will do what you want me to do you have my word. I miss you and always will.

I hope you are having a laugh, a beer and shot with the big man upstairs. Forgive me for the bad times as I do you. Keep your eye on me and let me know your ok. Rest easy now, be at peace, it was a pleasure to know you and call you my friend even when you were being a dumb ass. I love you brother. Always your friend Big E

Susie Bryhn was a joy to know! She had boundless energy and a very upbeat personality - a lovely combination of patience and sparkle. Susie was always a very busy lady - she devoted a lot of time and effort to several Williamsburg organizations that helped to improve our community. Family was very important to Susie - she loved to spend time with her children and grandchildren. I met her through community work and through friendship with her children. Later, Susie and I enjoyed many happy afternoons as her grandson, Jonathan, and my daughter, Melody, played together. We had lots of happy times - I remember Susie's bright smile, her buoyancy and her positive attitude and comforting encouragement. Susie was a wonderful soul who was a joy to know! Susie's family, please accept my deepest condolences - I know that you know that you were all so very lucky to have her in your life and I was blessed to have her touch my life, too.

Stuart D. Ogren had a distinguished career as a health care leader, including a lengthy tenure as President of the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association (VHHA), an alliance of hospitals and health systems in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Mr. Ogren served as the first executive of the Association, which he joined in 1962. Over the course of 27 years in that leadership role, he made substantial contributions to the provision of health care services and the development of health care public policy. In 1990, VHHA institutional members joined with Mr. Ogren’s friends and colleagues to establish the Stuart D. Orgen Scholarship Fund to support the education of exceptional students pursuing studies in health care administration. The scholarships benefit highly-qualified, academically exceptional Virginia students. Through this enduring scholarship program, and the lasting importance of his many contributions to improve the health care delivery system, Mr. Ogren’s accomplishments live on. We at the Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. Ogren and we extend our sincere condolences to all who knew and loved him.

Hans Christian von Baeyer posted on 5/27/20

In memoriam: John Lacy McKnight 1976 marked the bicentennial of the USA. In order to spotlight the sadly neglected role of science in the celebrations of the founding of this country, John and I set out to recreate an 18th century itinerant physics lecture. Supported by The National Science Foundation and Colonial Williamsburg, we assembled the appropriate electrical, pneumatic, and astronomical equipment, wrote a script, rehearsed our demonstration experiments, practiced our patter in a rough approximation of colonial English, packed a rental truck, and took to the road. Our first venture was a week-long tour of performances at Cornell and the universities of Syracuse, Rochester, and SUNY-Buffalo, in that order. It was exhilarating, unconventional, and exhausting, but we felt that we had succeeded in giving our young audiences a faithful glimpse of the impressive state of physics two centuries ago. The following years brought a couple of dozen invitations from universities up and down the East coast, science labs, museums and, appropriately, the New York Academy of Science in New York as well as the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia. Of course William & Mary, Colonial Williamsburg, and Nasa Langley Research Center hosted us too. But we were full-time, ageing physics professors, not truckers, gaffers, grips, actors, or stage performers. Working without support staff we grew weary – both physically and mentally. In order to assure some return on the investment of all that energy and money, we decided to film our lecture. “Mailing it in” sounded like an attractive option for satisfying future invitations! Not! A couple of video recordings of our lecture looked ridiculous. We learned that filming a story requires more than simply aiming a camera. So we went back to the NSF, secured a much bigger grant, and, again with CW, made a real movie. It was recorded on film, and later a DVD which is still available at the Visitor Center of Colonial Williamsburg under the title “A Glorious System of Things.” John and I are listed as science advisers. I am proud of that project, and I think John was too. What I know for sure is that for both us it was a profound, unforgettable and deeply satisfying adventure in a friendship lasting half a century. Hans Christian von Baeyer Chancellor Professor of Physics, emeritus William & Mary

My wife and I were only spectators but we enjoyed the weekends as much as our sons. George gave much to the worlds of music and reenacting and will truly be missed, but his legacy will continue for many years with the students he trained.

Pam and many of us Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Nurses worked closely together for many years and formed a bond as we cared for others. Pam was a teacher to me as a young ICU Nurse and I remember her and her teachings to this day. Our time together was a golden time for me in my life and I will always be grateful for the opportunities, lessons, and times we all spent together.. Pam and many others helped with the transformation of a New young ICU Nurse to an Experienced, Professional, Compassionate, Knowledgeable, Capable, and Caring ICU Nurse. That was many years ago and I will cherish the memories we shared together. Happy International Year of the Nurse Pam 2020 as you were an Integral part of our Nursing Profession. You will be missed and not forgotten. Sending Prayers for Peace, Love, Support, and Comfort to Pam's Family, and Friends. Rest well Pam, well deserved, and job well done. Until we meet again.

Just received Frank's passing on email. I live in Myrtle Beach, SC and today being tFriday I would not be able to be in Williamsburg in time.. I met Frank at James Blair High School and we were friends for a long time. Frank talked me into getting a job with C&P Telephone Co. I retired in 1998 as Bellatlantic. Thanks Frank for all the memories. I just lost my mother and I know Franks family will miss you.

Dear Cindy and Mitzi, we are so sorry for your loss. I met your dad in the sixties after we moved to Williamsburg. We had similar interests and had a casual friendship that would lead to a life changing moment for me. I mentioned to Frank that I had started taking electronics courses and he encouraged me apply for a job at C&P Telephone Company and the rest is history. Frank became a coworker and mentor and I appreciate all the time we spent together. He was a great role model for a new employee and a lifelong friend.

Frank would come into my work place and always, always stop by to say hello and smile and make me laugh he will be missed. God bless every one he touched especially his family.


Laura Gibbons posted on 5/14/20

I'm so sorry for your loss. Frank,and his beloved dog Chester, used to walk by my house most every day (Capitol Landing Road). He would often stop to chat. My mom and dad also went to school with him and always had nice things to say about him. He was a sweetheart and will be missed for sure.


Betty Brantley posted on 5/14/20

Your Dad was a kind and giving person, a friend to so many. He left a place on this earth that will not be filled. I picture him in heaven fishing with his many friends and telling stories. The best is yet to come for him. Take comfort in that vision.


Susan Wood Parker posted on 5/14/20

So sorry for your loss. I worked with Frank at C&P in the '70's but he was a family friend long before that. He and my stepmother shared a birthday. He will be remembered by his humor and brilliant smile.

Robert Singleton posted on 5/13/20

I have been fortunate to known Frank through all our school years there in Williamsburg. He indeed was a generous and gentle soul to many. Even though time and distance has separated us, I could call him and catch up on all the news of our classmates and his life (mostly fishing). Frank we were such close friends’ way back. Take care and see you on the other side someday.

Pam and I worked at WCH in ICU together.She was a wonderful person and strong nurse. When I left she made a lap quilt and had the doctors and nurses that I worked with sign it. It is the first thing you see when you come into my home. I was proud to be Pam's godmother on Jan 13, 1991 at St. George's Episcopal Church In Newport News, VA. I don't know if it was that day but I remember embarrassing her by not waiting to go up to communion when the usher said but practically running up when communion was announced. Pam, also, invited me to stay at her condo when I went back to Williamsburg to visit the nurses I worked with in ICU at a luncheon. It is a wonderful memory. Pam introduced me to her Carolina Wrens in her garden. Pam's last words to me were " Don't forget me." My condolences to her sister Kim and her family.


Fran Whitney posted on 5/12/20

I volunteered with Pam at Wetherburn's Tavern and the Everard House in Colonial Williamsburg for many years. She was always fun to be around and I enjoyed volunteering with her. Unfortunately, she had to give up her volunteering due to her duties as a Visiting Nurse.

I was so sadden to read of Ms Judy’s passing. She worked with my Mother at Eastern State before her retirement and I had the great pleasure of working with her as well, when I started at the hospital as well. My Mom still has some of the crochet items that Ms Judy made for her. Her smile will be greatly missed. Our deepest sympathy to her family. May GOD Bless you all.

I reconnected with Virginia when I drove Lorene Hooker to visit her shortly before she also passed away. We had all been neighbors many years ago. I visited again and took homemade banana popsicles for her. I found out later that she started making them for others to share. What an extraordinary woman and I feel honored to have been touched by her presence in my life. She was the most loving, generous and optimistic woman and will be missed my those of us who were fortunate enough to have known her.

Dearest Linnie and Eddie, Your Mom was a sweet, caring and funny lady. She could always make me laugh, with something she would come out with! Use to love when they came to Halifax and stopped to visit when on a flea market trip. She will be missed, but she has a new body in heaven now and we will see her again! Prayers for you as you go through this very hard time! Love you both!

Sherie Stockman Harbin posted on 5/10/20

My mother, Betty Stockman, loved Jean so! We were always going to visit in Williamsburg but work, children and life seemed to get in the way. I did reach you via phone several years ago, Gary, and did not realize Jean was now back in Williamsburg. Mother was 96 last week but has severe dementia and is in a home near me. I remember their fun trips to Edisto and they seemed to share so many memories. My heart goes out to Jan, Gary and your families.


Jennifer Whitt posted on 5/10/20

So sorry for your loss. She was a amazing lady. We shared lots of laughs. Praying for family.


Marcia Munn posted on 5/10/20

Jan and Gary - My husband Tom and I and my wonderful mom Liz, had the honor of getting to know Joan when she lived in Memory Care at Brookdale where my mom was. Though we only knew her during this time, all three of us found her to be such a delight, warm, engaging and so inquisitive. Tom and I were there everyday to either take my mom out or spend time with her at Brookdale and as such your mom came to "know" us and feel "safe" with us. She shared a meal table with my mom when she originally came there. We also often sat in the "fireplace" place room with my mom, reading, listening to music and/or having my mom play her violin, and your mom would often join us as she liked the "quiet" and "serenity". She was a true joy during this time and my husband and I still often talked about her even after my mom passed away. Our thoughts are with both of you and your families. Tom and Marcia Munn

Dear Family, I worked w/Virginia when she was a nurse's aide at the original Williamsburg Community Hospital from 1978-1987. She was the Best! We kept in contact w/each other through Christmas cards. She babysat my son for me and always asked for a picture. The last time we visited, we sat and went through all her pictures and news clippings. I left w/a loaf of her strawberry bread. I'm glad that she passed peacefully. I will miss hearing from her at Christmas.

He was a sensitive and caring person who shared a common interest in music and the natural beauty and wildlife here . Our regards and prayers go out to his brother and daughter in this time of loss . We also grieved at the loss of two of our sons this year but our faith kept us aware of the future ressurection to eternal life which all believers can share .

We are so sorry about Norm's passing. We first met him at the Williamsburg Camera Club and became friends and camera buddies. He was always so helpful in teaching photo techniques, places to go, swapping stories and relating a great deal of history. We will miss him very much, he was a good man.


Gail Price posted on 5/3/20

I grieve with Summer Ventis and with the many of us whose lives Larry enhanced. I feel fortunate to have known him for over 50 years, since I was an undergraduate at William and Mary. He was a significant influence in my young life and contributed to my becoming a psychologist and moving to California. Larry was a gentle, compassionate, humorous person with a great joy for life and great caring for family, friends, students. He saw the beauty in people and in the world. Larry, thank you for the time we had. Sorry for the time we won't share.


Mary Ann Rishel posted on 5/3/20

My deepest sympathy to Larry’s family and friends. This is a sad time. I remember him for his kindness, for his considered respect of scholarship in humor studies, that is, both its science and its humanities, and for his willingness to listen to all perspectives of humor theory. During our many years as colleagues and during our ISHS conferences, his commitment to the discipline provided a deep platform for understanding its complexities. Simply said, he was easy to talk to, always approachable, and always generous with his time I’m not sure when we first met, but I know it was in the early days of our discipline. He was “among the first” and through the years a good friend. I will miss him very much. My deepest sympathy.

To , Brian , Kim, Evan, Nicole , and Nigel. I Knew Ruth Ann in 1977. She was district supervisor for Central Pennsylvania B.P .oil co. She gave me my first managerial position as an 18 year old kid. I'll always remember her as an encourager. She saw the best in people. I remember her stories about her dad, saying that he taught her how to fix her car with shoe strings and bubble gum. Always positive and business minded with humility , not intimidated. I learned a lot from how she treated people. Always good memories. I haven't seen her since 1979, but what an impact she made on me. I've always been thankful and proud to have known her. Suppose we'll all see her again. Bless you all, Bob Goeke

Jean Shivel was a dear friend of my mother, Sonja Landvogt, for many years. I had the privilege of visiting Jean, with my mom, in her lovely home one lovely summer day. We had a delightful lunch and enjoyed our conversations immensely. Jean was an intelligent and caring woman, admired by many. She lived a full and extraordinary life. I send my sympathies to her family. May she rest in peace in the light of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Dear Jan, Gary, and Family, When my Mother (Sonja Landvogt) moved from Florida to Williamsburg in December of 2000, she became at parishioner at St. Stephen Lutheran Church. It was there that she and met Jean. Soon thereafter, Mom and Jean became good friends, enjoying lunches and conversations on a regular basis until Mom passed in 2018. We have fond memories of the times Jean and Sonja spent together. On behalf of the Landvogt family, I thank Jean for the wonderful Christian fellowship she extended to our Mother. We send our deepest sympathies to you during this time of sorrow and fond remembrance..
