Our prayers, thoughts, and condolences go out to the Stuck family.
I first knew of knew Mr and Mrs Stuck when he was the principal at Juniata Joint High School in the 1960s.
They both attended several of our class reunions over the years.
I've always admired them both.
Mrs Stuck was a "classy" lady.
