Dr Stults was a wonderful man and I miss him dearly at Brennity.

, ,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Dr. Stults was a friend of two of my uncles who were a few years younger than my mother. He was my dentist and we were all fascinated by the dent in his brow. I know how much my uncles and their wives loved him. God bless you all at the time especially.

Thanks to my orthodontist Dr.Stultz,who was able to keep my teeth straight when I was a teenager.I was constantly breaking my braces and many afternoons I was dropped off to have them reset.Being good friends with my parents,he would take me in his office to lecture me!I can still remember the Human Scull on his shelf,I’d never seen a scull before.Even today as I pass by his office on Abercorn St.,I still see the steps I treaded up and down many an afternoons! God Bless Him!

Cooper, I am sorry to read about your Father's death. Strange that my Mother, Henry Garlington and your Father died within a few weeks of each other. They were life long friends that enjoyed each others company. I guess they are partying in the next world. Best wishes, Pearce Reeve

I grew up calling him Unkie Tom, and I was 13 before I figured out he was not my uncle! What a sweet, dear man, and one of my dad’s closest and longest friends. It’s appropriate they left us less than two months apart. Sending my dearest thoughts to Cooper and his family.
