In Leo's Words

Listen to Leo Stock talk about Judy, his wife of 63 years.

This recording was made in Leo Stock's home. I sat across from Leo in his living room while he told me stories about his life with Judy. This clip is shared with permission from Leo.

Life Without Judy

I had the privilege of participating in the 71st Missouri Photo Workshop in September 2019 in Boonville, Mo. I spent five days documenting the life of 89-year-old Leo Stock, whose wife Judy had recently died after 63 years of marriage. The chance to get to know Leo while being trusted to document the struggle of learning to live without one's spouse was humbling.
