Edward Stubbs Jr.
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.
Ed is survived by his wife of 28 years, Nancy Sheridan Stubbs; his daughter, Eileen Viars and husband, John, of Elkton, MD, and son, Alan Stubbs, of Pasadena, MD; stepchildren, John E. Ansalvish and wife, Pam, of Delta, PA, and L. Robin Ansalvish,
