I have so many wonderful childhood memories of both Stafford and Muriel. Stafford was always the life of the party for us kids - always making up games, jokes and stories. I will hold his memory dear. My deepest sympathies to Mrs Wilbur, Larry, Nancy, Stephen and Laura.

We met Staff and Muriel when our son, Oscar, married their niece, Linda McKenny. There were many good times at Oscar and Linda's cabin in the mountains of West Virginia. Staff was one of those persons you liked from the beginning. We always felt at home around Staff and Muriel. Good people. We will miss Staff at our family gatherings.

Many pleasant memories will continue of the over more than 50 years' association with Staff -- working with him at NASA, and even more, interacting with the Wilbur family at their home.

I remember the many visits to camp in Massachusetts with my uncle Staff's family. Uncle Staff was always very kind and interesting .... as a youngster growing we thought of him as the "rocket scientist" with NASA, yet he always was humble about his work. My earliest recollection was of him giving me a piece of the material they used to make one of the first satellites...(echo)... and how valuable that aluminized piece of mylar seemed to me. It really fostered my life long interest in science. I have been very fortunate to have been part if my dad's , his sister, and Staff,'s families and experiances. Thank you to this generation for shaping who I am , and my condolences to aunt Murial and family, while celebrating my uncles life that has made a difference in mine. Bruce Wilbur
