Robert E. Stacy. Sr.

Robert E. Stacy Sr., 74, of Pleasant Prairie, succumbed to his valiant four year battle with pancreatic cancer, Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014, at Aurora Medical Center.

He was born in Kenosha, the son of the late Raymond and Evelyn Stacy. He was a lifelong resident of Kenosha and Pleasant Prairie, Wis. Robert graduated from Mary D. Bradford in 1957 and continued his education at Racine Technical College.

On Aug. 6, 1960, he united in marriage to his childhood sweetheart, Marie Ohmstead at Bethany Lutheran Church.

Robert was employed for almost 50 years as Vice President of manufacturing at Motor Specialty of Racine.

After retiring, he and his daughter Christina rehabbed her first home.

As a child he attended and sang in St. Matthews Episcopal Choir. He loved music, gardening, hunting, fishing, biking and ruling-the-roost. He enjoyed checking out St. Vinnies and playing cribbage in the gazebo. But most of all he loved outings with his beloved granddaughter, Parker.

He was a past member of the Kenosha Bowman, the Elks Club, Racine Manufacturing Association and the Republican Party. He faithfully donated to the VFW and the Disabled Vets.

Surviving is his loving wife of 53 years, Marie, his son Robert Stacy Jr. of Watertown, his daughter, Christina and his son-in-law, Jason Van Dusen of Kenosha, his beloved granddaughter, Parker Van Dusen. Many loving nieces and nephews also survive him.

He is preceded in death by his parents, his two sisters, Evelyn Ruud and Charlotte Hall, and his brother-in-law Deane Ohmstead on April 5, 2013.

Funeral services for Robert will be held on Friday, Jan., 31, at 11 a.m. at the Bruch Funeral Home. Interment will follow at Green Ridge Cemetery.
