Rep. Tina Pickett recently presented a citation to mark the milestone birthday of Edgar Chubbuck, who turned 90. Pictured, right, is his daughter, Susan Bird. He also has two sons now deceased, Lynn and Marc Chubbuck.
On Saturday, July 26 at the Dille Parish in LeRaysville, family, close friends and invited guest Rep. Tina Pickett came to honor Edgar Martin Chubbuck. Edgar was born on July 25, 1928, at home near Potterville.
Edgar attended a one-room schoolhouse in Potterville that he walked to and from, then he attended LeRaysville High School. He was a dairy and veal farmer and contractor building homes.
He is still a builder on a smaller scale — he makes houses, covered bridges and churches out of popsicles sticks in the winter months. Popsicles were on hand for those attending to sign their name to for a winter building project.
Edgar is a grandfather to six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Cards can be sent to Edgar at 21 Williams Rd., Rome, Pa. 18837.
