Dear Velma,

I was saddened to just today read of Stuart’s passing. As I am writing, I find myself smiling with memories of seeing the 2 of you wearing your red volunteer jackets in the lobby of Yale-New Haven Hospital.

I am sure that you have many more memories of your own which I hope are bringing you comfort.

Dear Velma and Family,
Harriet and I are saddened by the passing of Stu. We met Stu and Bob when we fox hunted with Fairfield County Hounds in the early 1980’s. They were most welcoming and one of the reasons we moved to Woodbury CT. In 2000.
Stu had a passion for life and it resonated with family and friends. He generated great warmth to those fortunate to be in his presence. Laughter interspersed with wisdom readily shared was one way that you knew he cared about you.
He will be missed, but remembered for his love of family and friends, causes that he championed and the many fine deeds he quietly did for others. We call him friend and he personified giving back is a worthy tradition.
Rest In Peace. Joel and Harriet Serota

Dear Velma: Our sincere condolences for your loss of our very special friend, Sargent Stu Grodd.
For those of your family who might be interested: I first met Stu at Camp Atterbury in 1953 when we both began our active duty with the US Army Field Artillery. Stu was a recruit private, and I was a ROTC 2nd LT. It was very unusual at that time for officers to socialize with privates, but Stu and I managed to break the rules. One weekend we drove to Ky to spend a weekend with my brother, Bill Teegen. In late 1953 Camp Atterbury

was federally closed, and we were transferred to different division units at Ft Carson, Colorado. Evie & I and Stu and Velma were all married in 1952, and so we were permitted to live off the post and spent special social times together. In 1955 we completed our active duty time with the US Army and went our separate ways to begin our careers and raised our families.. We had little communications from 1955 to 2018. , Stu or Velma picked up our name on our daughters Dean & Martha Adolph Facebook.. We made contact and agreed to meet with you.. So after 64 years of little contact we met Stu & Velma at their New York resident apt, and for3 days partying in the Big Apple. A true and lasting friendship enjoying the days as well as many great memories of past years.. Thank the Lord for a wonderful and lasting friendship. Our love to Velma and so now appreciate our time of renewal. .

I met Stu only twice, but his unforgettable, exuberant personality made an indelible impression on me, as it did on so many others. So striking was his ability to connect and relate to strangers, and to instantly make them feel as his friend.
My deepest sympathies to Velma and to Grodd family.

I know you (Stu’s family) do not know me but I knew “Stewie”, thru my 51 years as a carpenter. As I read his obituary I felt such a feeling of loss. But continued to read and he lived such a GREAT life! Still skied at 85 years= unbelievable.
I miss him!

So very sorry to hear of Stuie’s passing! He always reminded me how much he remembered my mother and father from the Woodmont days on West Cherry St.
What a very handsome man and beautiful couple he and Velma were always. I saw him at Smilow where they volunteered, around Woodbridge and even while walking at the cornfield. My heartfelt condolences to the entire family!
