Hub and I had some great adventures in the jungles of Venezuela and Ecuador, from catching trophy-size peacock bass, to eating capybara to paddling a dugout canoe in piranha-infested waters. He was a great friend, always to be remembered. My sincere condolences to Dona, family and all who knew and loved him. Hub, string up some hammocks for us.

Hub was a fellow Civil War relic hunter and had worked at Kingston Pencil Co. with my mother many years ago. Recently he had asked me to find out about the first Boy Scout camp. It was at Camp Boulder Nook in 1915 at Falling Water.
He will be missed by all the Chattanooga Area Relic and Historical Association.
