I remember both Stu & Arlene when my husband Jon Jerore and Stu were on the Wixom Volunteer Fire Department. What a loving couple. Great times at the Wixom picnics through the years.
Their children went to school with our daughters.
Rest in Peace Stu & Arlene.

Stu not only was a Fire Fighter and Fire Marshal for the City of Wixom, he worked at the Wixom Assembly Plant. My job for many years at Ford Motor and while at Wixom Assembly was that of the Fire Specialist. Because of my job title, Stu and myself worked side by side for many years ensuring all those who worked at the Wixom facility were well protected related to Life Safety. I look back at Stu's life and smile knowing he was an unsung hero of all those he represented not only throughout the City of Wixom but all those who worked at the Wixom Assembly Plant. Rest in Peace my good friend, God's Speed to life eternal with your lovely wife of many years. Your life's work and dedication to public service will never be forgotten!
