MILFORD — Kenneth “Stub” Gustin, 59, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, June 3, 2013, at Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown.

Son of Joseph and Melda Gustin of Gilboa, “Stub,” as his family and friends knew him, was an avid outdoorsman. He loved to hunt and tell his hunting stories. He loved taking care of the many calves that he called his little girl babies. He also enjoyed spending time with his cousins, with whom he worked very closely with for 35 years. Stub was always there whenever anyone needed him regardless of who you were or what time of day or night it was.

Stub is survived by his parents; two sisters, Amy and Nick Cudemo of Gilboa and Dorothy and Werner Schwab of Salem; brother, Joseph and Denise of Conesville; his second family, the Jahnke family of Milford; and the rest of his farm family on Hemlock Valley Farm, Milford; several aunts; uncles; nieces; nephews; cousins; great-nieces and great-nephews; and his two dogs.

Stub was predeceased by several uncles, aunts and both sets of grandparents, Michael and Mary Gustin and Albert and Dorothy Tompkins.

Friends may call from 11 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 8, at the Hall-Tari Funeral Home, 40 Main St., Stamford. A funeral service will follow at the funeral home at noon.

Those who wish may donate in his memory to the Susquehanna SPCA or Milford Fire and Rescue Squad.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Hall-Tari Funeral Home, under the direction of William A. Tari.
