Condolences

Condolence From: Sally Knutty Ritz Barkley
Condolence: My mother, Ruth M. Knutty, was Ike's first cousin and resided in Black River, NY for over 50 years until she moved to Texas to live with me. She passed away when she was two months shy of 106 and she and Ike talked a lot by phone, so I took over keeping up with him after she died in 2010. We talked often and always discussed the family and his wonderful Susie that his missed so much. Ike was always happy and we shared jokes with every conversation and he'd always ask if I'd heard any new jokes. I'm sure Nancy will find plenty that I sent him and he "stashed away" but never knew where to find them!!! He was a great guy and I will miss talking with him so much. I never knew of his death until the day of his funeral when I just happened to pick up the phone to call him as we hadn't been in touch for several months-what a shock when Nancy picked up his phone and told me. My deepest sympathy is extended to all of his remaining family and his happy spirit will remain with me always-there was no one like him and I will miss him in my life!!

Condolence From: Janet Trumbore Davey
Condolence: Cousin Ike was my Dad, James Henry Trumbore's first cousin. I have never met him, but my Dad was very close to him and his brother Dick when they were kids. James is 5 years younger than Ike. My Dad would tell us how gregarious and funny He was. He was always the jokester. They saw each other on very few occasions as they lived on different coasts. Our family never met his. My Dad talked about what a beautiful couple he and his wife were and how lost he was when she passed. He talked about how they loved to dance and knew them all. They did the jitterbug like no others and were king and queen on the dancefloor. They talked on the phone once in awhile up until a short time ago. He alway was uplifting and telling jokes on the phone, my Dad said. When my kids were young he would send them each one dollar in the mail with a note. We had never met before, but this must have been his way of staying in touch with family. I always thought that was so sweet especially for a man to do. I would always have my kids write thank you letters to him and draw pictures. He seemed to love that. Rest in Peace Cousin Ike, I wish I had met you.
