I met Stacy at Whit- Ash less than 2 years ago when I was hired on. Around day 3 , he came to me and welcomed me aboard and told me I was " going to do Great " and if I needed help , he was there for me. He flashed that fabulous smile and his words were genuine and true and I KNEW I had met an amazing co-worker..Nothing ever changed , it Just got better . HE was a daily dose of positive inspiration and often downright silliness with his boyish charm and never ending antics that the entire staff & customers loved and could not resist . I am forever thankful that our paths crossed and though our time together short , you left a very special imprint in my heart . YOU were just THAT Special . I know your Light will Continue to Shine brightly always and I will miss you .

My main man Stacy. You were always a good friend and a stand up guy. Even though we didn’t speak on a regular basis; we never skipped a beat when we did link up. You will be missed brother. Fly high and hold a spot for me. Love you.

I first meet Stacy in high school. He was a friend of my sister Bonnie. He was always so nice and sweet. He would always say Hello to me in passing while going down the hallways and in times when he couldn't talk he would just look at me and smile. He will be missed greatly. To the Cook family from all of us in the Denton family, our prayers and thoughts are with you. Stacy, you were a angel on earth so be it in heaven.

The first time I met Stacy, I was teaching at Lake Murray Elementary where I taught Alexis and Cody and he and Angie were parent volunteers. I have always said to them what a beautiful pair they were and since then have always called them Barbie and Ken. We’ve all had some great memories from our Hayley and Alexis playing soccer together, to “borrowing” your Great Dane for a day. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. I pray that God gives you all a “peace which surpasses all understanding...”

Stacy, You will be missed here. But I know you have gone to a place where we don't understand. But I do believe we will see you again. Please help us to keep that in mind. I look forward to seeing your contagious smile. For now I will be praying for your Mom, family and friends. See you again my friend.

A true polite gentleman (a rare trait), man of integrity, hero and brother in Christ. You oozed charisma and chivalry, love for humanity and most of all how you cherished your beloved children and grandchildren that you were compelled to brag on- how you anticipate being a glam-dad again. I can only imagine what an awesome man you were by the outpouring of compliments from those fortunate enough to have met you, how you respected your mother and your commitment to family life. Your children ARE you r legacy and I am just sick at heart for your handsome family and to be sure your presence will be missed by your family, coworkers and all whom you touched. Earth lost an awesome human being- evident in your smile that I fear was of an eccedentesiast. I am quite sure you raised a fine young man who will no doubt treat others and women with respect as you have showed by example, and I hope your daughters will wait for the man who treats them like the queen that they were in your eyes. I have the honor of having some of your last sentiments which will remain a fond memory, including your willingness to sacrifice for others, your adamant testimony about Jesus being your Lord and Savior, your expectation and belief that people (your daughters) should never settle for less than they deserve and waiting for "the one", your unconditional trust of others and generous nature in being a giver even at great personal sacrifice, "my kids are my world", "God and my children saved me", "I couldn't imagine going that long without my kids""I love what I do, I get great satisfaction of being a fireman and EMT", "my grandkids - I have one on the way in January- what an awesome feeling". I know you faced trials and I trust you are now at the ultimate place of peace, joy and love. One of my biggest regrets will be deferring the chance to meet with you in person until 3 days after this fateful day. Go rest high on that mountain Sir until we meet in the firmament. ....Fondly Julie

One of my fondest memories of Stacy was when he, Angie, myself, and my husband Russell got together and went out to eat at the Olive Garden. We had a blast. We talked and laughed and just enjoyed each other’s company. Stacy was always kind and polite to me, and I dearly loved Stacy and Angie. In the Bible, Jesus said, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also.” Angie, Alexis, Cody, Santana, and Madison I pray that The Holy Spirit of God will give you peace and comfort and strength to support and to love each other during this time. Your father loved you deeply, and now, he is in Heaven where he can watch over you always. With my love, condolences, and deepest affection, Bambi.

Stacy bought my grandaughter her very own pink recliner for her 1st birthday. He was so proud to give that to her, although I didn't know him that well, only met him a couple of times, I can honestly say he had not only one of the brightest smiles, but also the warmest. I know you will be missed by your whitash family , but I also pray for your children, and the rest of your family. And knowing that to be absent from the body, is to be present with the lord. Give peace to all who grieve.
