Oh no! Stu was such a dear friend, this really breaks my heart. I can’t tell you how many times I would open my mailbox to find packages from Stu. A great musician too. You will be missed dearly, bud!

I got the news from Josh Dubin not more than an hour ago.

This is tragic to me. Stu and I have been the closest of friends... more "brothers in arms" really... for 49 years. A humble man with a god-given talent and a great musical resume. He will be missed profoundly.

It's so very sad. He was one of the nicest persons I ever met, an amazing musician, and a very funny guy. At a local jam, he could play guitar, psg, dobro, keyboard.
Stu introduced me to the pedal steel, and I had just started taking lessons with him last year. RIP, my friend.

Really awful news! My deepest condolences and prayers to his family and his many friends. Stu was a real mensch, and this forum will seem hollow without his presence.

I am so sad to hear this. I too have received many gifts from Stu… picks, tone bars, a yankee candle and even an LTD amp. He was a wonderful friend and will truly be missed. Crying or Very sad

Such sad news. I never met Stu in person, but we exchanged several emails over the years and he sent me some of his CDs. He was a kind person and a credit to the music/steel guitar world. Rest in Peace, Stu.

Looking over some emails from Stu, he had just turned 70 on April 10.

There are so many incredible and funny stories Stu told, I don’t know if it would be cool to repeat them here, so only in person I guess.

What a nice guy. He had been through so much. He loved meeting new people and people in general. He loved his Desert Rose Guitars. I'll miss him. RP

Irene and I have very fond memories of Stu at the conventions in Mesa. His remarkable comeback from that stroke was inspiring.

How sad. I met him at the SWSGA shows. He was a very kind man and I really enjoyed his Facebook posts.

I am so sorry to hear about Stu. It's quite a shock, as I had been corresponding with him only a few days ago. Rest in Peace, man.

This is tragic news. Stu was one of the nicest guys you could ever meet and an awesome musician. I met him at one of the Phoenix steel guitar shows. He was super inquisitive and wanted to know about the music I was into, equipment, etc. He’d say, oh you like that? Then let me introduce you to this guy over here. I felt like I’d walked into a foreign country and met the welcoming mayor or something. Just a great guy!

I told him about some high end tone struggles I was having with a guitar. The next time I saw him (a year later!) he gave me a box with a tone cut switch and pot that he had designed and had made. I still use that thing all the time. Hearing the stories of the packages he’s sent out to people, he must have had a running list in his head of what all these steel players across the country were interested in, and what they might like. A rare, deep generosity.

Condolences to family and all of his long time and more recently met pals. He left a big foot print. I’ll miss you buddy.
