Memories Timeline


    • Dear Family, Mr.. Stuckey was such a very sweet, kind man. My late hubby and I served on the staff of Fletcher United Methodist Church and Mr. Stuckey was a very faithful church member and always had a sweet smile. He was also very supportive of our Ministry of Music and Senior Adults and was always complimentary of our service. It was a joy to have known him and I know I will see him one day again. May the Lord give you sweet memories and joys to remember in the days ahead. You are in my thoughts and prayers today. Priscilla

  1. Dave was a friend and a respected member of the human resource community. He always impressed me with his knowledge and I especially appreciated his delightful personality and sense of humor. I extend my deepest sympathy to the family on the occasion of his passing.
