Stafford came into my shop one day, and we instantly became friends. Over the years, he would stop by and we would pick up where we left off the time before. There was never a lull in conversation and more laughs than anything. We shared tough times and testimonies. I will forever miss him and his smile! I am praying for his sons and his grand babies (oh, how he loved those babies!) and the rest of the family as I am sure there is a gaping hole! God bless and comfort you all in the days ahead.

Met Stafford when I was employed at Port Arthur Towing Co. (PATCO) and he was employed with International Paint. We became friends and remained friends for over 30 years. We shared a many drinks, laughs and good times at Arthur’s Pub. He will truly be missed. I was definitely blessed to have met him, and not only become friends but also neighbors. Fly high Stafford - until we meet again.
