At one time he was sexton for several cemeteries in the area with his last being Clarksville Cemetery where he was still working.
He loved to hunt, fish, and go camping in his RV.
In addition to his wife he is survived by his children, Roderick A. (Joanna) Sisson of Clarksville, Charlene D. (Daniel) Davison of Bolivar and Roger E.

He was predeceased by his parents and brother Ronald Sisson.
Honoring Stubs wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral services. Burial will be in West Genesee Cemetery, Genesee New York.
