We were very saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Stu Beckett on January 7, 2017. Stu was a dedicated member of the Asylum Hill Congregational Church, and in that capacity he was instrumental in the foundation of ServCorps, the building ministry that worked to re-build homes in disaster-stricken areas around the country. ServCorps, of course, was a long-time partner with NINA, and although we met Stu through ServCorps we quickly came to know him in his own right. Stu lent his carpentry skills to our projects, and his involvement can be seen on many of the porches of our homes. We still have a batch of trim that he ordered for us in our storage area, and we will think fondly of him as we install it at 94-96 Ashley Street.
Stu was a wonderful person to have around, and NINA and our homeowners all appreciate the contributions he made toward our work and toward the revitalization of Asylum Hill. Our deepest condolences go out to his family.
