March 11, 1939 - January 7, 2022


R. William (Bill) Stacy, Jr.


Bill Stacy, 82, Lee’s Summit, Missouri, passed away Friday, January 7, 2022.

Bill was a loving husband to Ann L. Stacy for 35 years, until her passing in 1995, and a devoted father to his two children. Later in life, he became a world class grandpa.

He graduated from Central Missouri State College in 1961.

In 1965 Bill went to work for the Ambassador division of Hallmark Cards where he retired as the Marketing Vice-President – Retail Development in 1997. He was instrumental in the introduction of the Hallmark brand to the grocery and mass-merchandising markets. His accomplishments at Hallmark and his personal life were due to his genuine interest in helping others succeed.

Bill was a mentor to his children, grandchildren, friends, co-workers and neighbors. He was an active church member, volunteering his resources and skills in the development of his church family.

Bill will be remembered as an avid outdoorsman who especially enjoyed fishing, having introduced two generations to the sport.

Bill loved his country and flew the US flag daily at his house.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Ann L. Stacy and his sister, Sheila K. Johnson.

Bill is survived by his children; David (Lyn) Stacy and Susan (John) Faulkenberry and grandchildren; Bobby (Samantha) Faulkenberry and Thomas Faulkenberry, brothers; James (Jan) Stacy and John (Karen) Stacy, brother-in-law; Philip Johnson.

In light of the current Covid surge, and with respect to all health care workers, a celebration of life will be held late spring, 2022. Specific information will be forthcoming from the family.

I always looked forward to seeing him every Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday morning when we worked on John and Romans. He was a great inspiration. I will always remember his love. Thank God for his present in my life.

Bill was one true Man of God. A man that loved his family and showed and demonstrated love to everyone he ever met and befriended. He will always be the most honorable man I have ever known in my lifetime.

I met Bill through the former Heartland Emmaus Community in the Kansas City area in which he participated in for many years. He was proud of his beautiful wife that he loved so much. He shared much to us about her and the beauty they created in their family and her beautiful photography.

Bill was always one of the first people to greet and introduce himself to anyone new walking through the door or in a crowd. Bill was very intelligent and a true leader in the most gentle ways for every occasion. I wish I could have a friend like him now to talk with and share time with. He will be in my memory for as long as I live.

May he rest in peace and I know he will be with our God in heaven.
