My new writing project

The Stubby Currence ProjectWith my grandmother passing away this spring, I’ve been delving into a lot of family mementos and photos. It’s been bittersweet to see all the items she and my grandfather, who passed in 1981, collected over their lifetimes. This was the first time I’ve seen many of these things: my grandmother’s childhood photos, my grandpa’s newspaper scrapbooks. As a way to share some of these items, I’ve started the Stubby Currence Project. See, he was a newspaper writer for 52 years, and he lived a pretty neat life.

While running the errands that inevitable with planning a funeral, I took an elevator ride with a gentleman who was asking about my family. “Your grandfather meant a lot to us around here,” he said.

With this blog, I’m started to realize just how much he did.

    Hi! I “liked” the FB pgage some time ago…I worked at WHIS in Bluefield for six year, covered Beaver’ games for 4 and ran into Stubby in press boxes all over the state! Enjoyed chatting with him and reading his work. It appears he passed away shortly after I left for Tulsa in June of ’81. Thanks for keeping his legacy alive!
