I was Mr, Stock’s Secretary from 1996 to 1998, after which time I moved to Florida.
He was the best boss I ever had, and I always remember him saying
“the cream always rises to the top.”

Last of the great true gentlemen. He loved his country, his wife and his children. He was a great father in law, he welcomed me with open arms and was always thoughtful of mine and every ones needs. Cannot say enough good things about this man. I will miss him deeply! I love you and may you rest in peace!
