Cecil Whig - - OPINION -

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, of Wilm­ing­ton, DE; three step-grand­daugh­ters, Erin and Kate An­salvish and Lau­ren Precht and hus­band, Car­roll; and two great­grand­daugh­ters, Bai­ley and Hay­den Precht.

In ad­di­tion to his par­ents, Ed was pre­ceded in death by Eileen O’Hara Stubbs, mother of his three chil­dren; his sec­ond wife, Linda Ash­bridge Stubbs, who passed away at the age of 40; and his son, Ed­ward Stubbs, III.

The fam­ily would like to give spe­cial thanks to the Trin­ity Home Health Care­givers who have helped them care for Ed since Jan­uary 2015. A spe­cial thank you to CNA Rose who has been with him since May, and to Nurse RaeAnn of Amedisys Hospice.
