    So loved Shubert’s friendliness and his ready smile. He always remembered me when our paths crossed. And i so appreciated his many contributions of time , talent, and wonderful stories at Eagle Fest, too.
    Soar on, Shubert!

    Although we didn’t know him personally, we always enjoyed visiting with Shubert at the swap meet. We would always hope for him to be there with more tools!! He always had interesting fun treasures to look at, and we bought things from him quite often. He was a very nice, kind man. What a very nice obituary, and it’s heartwarming to hear his legacy lives on with so many family members, and a Shubert the 4th! We are very sorry for your loss. We will miss seeing him. Rest in Peace Shubert.
