I am so sorry to hear. Mr Stallings was always a pleasure to be around. I truly enjoyed our conversations and being a Rotarian with him. May God be with the family and grant you comfort and strength.

My heart is saddened by the passing of Mr. Stallings, and my prayers for comfort and peace go up for the Stallings family. I remember shooting basketball for hours on weekends at the Stallings’ house, probably making all kinds of noise when Mr. and Mrs. Stallings were probably trying to get some weekend rest...they always welcomed us, though. They were always very kind to us neighborhood kids. Thank you for allowing us to make those great memories that we still talk about to this day.

Bryant and I were buddies for years at Greenwood Forest Baptist Church. He always had a smile for everyone and a great attitude.
