Remembering Skip McLear

by on May.17, 2012, under Uncategorized

It is with great sadness that I write, that Skip McLear, my sister’s husband, left this world, last Sunday, May 13th, 2012. He died peacefully at home, surrounded by his loving wife and two children, Jimmy and Lisa.

I remember when Skip was first dating my sister.  He was still in the Navy and we were living in Matawan, N.J.  He would sleep in my room, one of us got the mattress on the floor, the other the box spring.  I have lots of good memories with Skip.  We did a lot of outdoorsy stuff, from canoeing in New Jersey, to Jet skiing on the Chesapeake Bay.

Once I was looking for a tail light for my car, a 1958 Mercury.  Skip drove us from South Jersey back to Matawan, on Route 9, and we stopped at every junkyard along the way.  We also hit some real hard core junkyards around Newark.  Never did find that tail light.

Heirlooms

my sister Bernadette is refinishing a bureau that came from my father’s Aunt Emma of Philadelphia.  The bureaus is at my sister Chris’ house in Georgia.    What a journey that bureau has had.  It was falling into disrepair sitting in a storage shed in Georgia.  I hope Bernadette can salvage it.

Bern says the original spelling was Strackbein, they came over as indentured servants around 1796.

I did a search on the “Strockbine” name at ellisisland.org and got the hits below.  But I think the Strockbines were in this country already.  Wasn’t one of our ancestors a ferry boat captain.  Grandma Neil would know all this stuff.

Richard Strockbine

by on Jun.30, 2009, under Uncategorized

Richard Strockbine left us last night.  He was my uncle, a grandfather to others.  Arrangements are still being made, I think a viewing will be held in Absecon.  We will miss him so much.  I used to see him a lot when I was a kid and a teenager.  We would stay at the farm on Pine Avenue and my dad would drive us to see his mom.  Uncle Dick and my grandma lived together.  We would stay at their place until it got dark.  On the drive back to the farm we would fall asleep.
