Stub Burril was born Oct. 22, 1927, at Pierce, Idaho, to Charles and Lulu Burril. He attended schools around the Wilder, Idaho, area.

He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1945, and served as a radio operator until 1947. Stub married Vera Obeta Huckabee on May 7, 1951, at Wilder, Idaho. He worked in the timber industry in various areas around Oregon.

After moving to Unity in 1959, Stub was a logging truck driver, a profession he greatly enjoyed, until his retirement. In 1994, he moved to Baker City where he lived with his companion, LaVelle Givens, for 11 years.

Stub had many friends through his association with the Baker Senior Center. For many years, he enjoyed playing music for dances at the center. Times with family and friends enjoying the outdoors, camping, playing music, throwing horseshoes, and just driving out in the forests were Stub’s greatest joys.

Survivors include his companion, LaVelle Givens of Baker City; a brother Ralph “Lyle” Burril of Kuna, Idaho; a son, Lexie Burril of Baker City; a daughter, Doneena Vandecar of Umatilla; grandson, Joseph Vandecar II, and his wife, Brandi, and their children, Baylea and Joseph III; grandson, Joshua Vandecar, and his wife, Amie; and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 40 years, Obeta; his parents; four brothers, Donald Burril, Clyde Burril, Lex Burril, and Burt (Fay) Burril; and one sister, Vivian (Lyla) Cornwell.
