Harry Arthur Stacy

March 16, 1944 ~ November 17, 2022 (age 78) 78 Years Old


Harry Arthur Stacy, age 78, passed comfortably at home on November 17, 2022, after battling cancer for many years.  Harry was pre-deceased by his wife of 59 years, Avis Lorraine Wallace, who was the love of his life and his Sunshine.  

Harry was the son of Ruth Beauregard Stacy and James Stacy. He is survived by one sister Joan Stacy, and pre-deceased by sisters Carol McKenzie, Martha Sampson, Mary Schafer.   

Harry grew up in Claremont and attended Saint Mary’s school. As a young man he enjoyed working at Putnam florist and he also worked at the papermill in Claremont.  Harry worked at Sturm Ruger & Company where he was manager of polishing and bluing departments and helped develop many finishes that were used on Ruger firearms. He was able to retire early at age 55. He also worked part-time for Home Depot as a greeter until his health declined.

Harry is survived by his three daughters Lorraine Stacy, Susan Sanderson and husband Michael, and Sandra Carleton. He was pre-deceased by grandchildren Tyler Maryn and Adam Pysz, and survived by grandchildren James Haselton and wife Jennifer, Lauren Barry and husband Kevin, Jennifer Sanderson, and Courtney Carleton, and great grandchildren Tristan and Preston-Adam Haselton, Olivia Bridge, and Finnegan Barry and leaves behind in-laws Paul and Sandra Duling, Brenda Wallace, and Richard Wallace, and many other loving family members. 

Harry was a kind, hardworking man who enjoyed life with his family. He loved working outside with his wife Avis and swimming with family and grilling up some food.  He always was known to be tinkering about on a few projects. He loved to go fishing with the family, even if it meant he got slapped by a fish or finding himself at the wrong end of a hook. 

We will miss him greatly but take comfort that he is no longer suffering and is now together again with Avis and the boys, and other loved ones that have gone before him.   

The family will be observing personal remembrance and there will be no funeral services at this time per his request. A  graveside ceremony will be held in spring/summer for family and friends.
