Thank you to everyone who has asked about an obituary for my grandfather, George J. Stroup, Sr. He passed away on 6 Nov 2014 but did not want an obituary placed in any newspaper. He also did not want a funeral or viewing. We had a modest graveside ceremony for him with our immediate family.
If you are interested in sending or doing something to honor his memory, we ask that you instead make a donation in his memory to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (www.stjude.org). This is a charity that was near and dear to my grandfather’s heart.
Another more detailed post commemorating my grandfather will be coming soon.
