Ed­ward Stubbs, Jr., “Bunger”, age 92, of Elk­ton, MD, passed away on Thurs­day, July 21, 2016.

Ed was born in Ch­e­sa­peake City, MD, on De­cem­ber 19, 1923, the son of the late Ed­ward, Sr. and Ida Sim­mons Stubbs. In 1929, Ed’s par­ents built their new home on Elk For­est Road where ten of Ed’s un­cles and aunts lived in houses next to each other – they called it “Stubb­sville”. He was an avid farmer from age 7 when he thinned corn on the farm just down the road. The same farm he and his par­ents pur­chased in 1946, and where he planted his own crops of corn and soy­beans un­til he was 86 years old.

In ad­di­tion to farm­ing, Ed worked in his cho­sen field of HR/Per­son­nel at Tri­umph Ex­plo­sives, Bain­bridge and Aberdeen Prov­ing Ground from 1942 un­til he re­tired in 1984. Fol­low­ing re­tire­ment, he worked for Ce­cil County for one year. Ed served on the So­cial Ser­vices Board, where he was named board mem­ber of the year in 2001. He then went on to serve on the Hu­man Ser­vices De­vel­op­ment Com­mit­tee.

Ed was an APGFCU vol­un­teer for 35 years be­gin­ning in 1958. First he served as Chair­man of the Credit Com­mit­tee, then served on the Board of Di­rec­tors from 1963 through 1985, serv­ing as Chair­man for 17 years.

Ed was a loyal mem­ber of Elk­ton United Methodist Church.
