Stacy was very nice in High School (THCA) and always positive. I saw him a few times at LSU-S as well. I will surely miss him. I am very sad to hear of your loss.

Just now learning about saddened to hear about this! I thoroughly enjoyed working with Stacey; he was always enjoyable to be around and I would like to think he had an impact on me as he did with so many other people's lives he touched. He'll definitely be missed by many but I have no doubt that he has gone to be in a much better place. Godspeed to his new journey and may peace always continue to be with his family and friends!

Lisa and Brandon - While working with Stacy at MetLife I got to know him really well and cared deeply for him as a friend. I talked to Stacy at CenturyLink several times at concerts after I left MetLife. Even when Stacy would tell me about his health he always seemed to keep a smile. I will always remember him and will keep you and Brandon in my prayers.

Thank you for teaching me to lean on my my Faith.

Lisa, Brandon, and family: I went by Met Life to visit with Mr. Larkin today, and was so sad to hear of his passing. You must know what an incredible human being he was. He was so helpful to me concerning my financial portfolio. It was evident to me that this man was very, very special. His Christian faith and his professional attitude have inspired me to be a better Christian example in all facets of my life. God comfort and be with you all.
