  1. Dear Shaq, I will miss you my fellow Gemini. Thank you for your friendship while I rented space from Triad and your heart of gold support when I was sick for many years. Your impeccable style and confidence, humor, perspective and quick pace always brought joy and I’m confident you are still brightening our world with your spirit. I will treasure how you got me ready to play golf with the “guys” by giving me various items, including your Shinnecock towel. Thank you for introducing me to amazing Ruth as well as your lovely wife and son, Jeff, years ago. You welcomed me fully. I told you then as I tell you know, I love you. Rest in peace knowing that you lived well and impacted my life. Love, Stacey

  2. The Valencia Pointe golfers at Indian Spring CC have lost an irreplaceable part of our group. We all loved playing with Stu who was always ready with a story. Most of us only knew him for a short time but we all came to love him as a man and a friend. May his memory be a blessing for his family and all who had the privilege of knowing him. Rest in peace.

  3. It is with great sadness that I learned of Stu’s passing. My deepest sympathies go out to Nancy, Scott, Jeff and their families. Stu & I shared some great years together and he was always a warm and loving friend and partner.

  4. The world has lost one of the greats…I worked with Shaq at Triad for many years…he was my desk mate through so many life events. My heart is breaking. Love to Nancy, Jeff and Scott
