OBITUARY: Roger Wayne Stacy

Posted 5/27/21
Roger Wayne Stacy, 69, of Baxter, passed away on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, at the Iowa Lutheran Hospital in Des Moines.
Visitation will be held from 10-11 a.m., Saturday, May 29, 2021, at Caldwell Parrish Funeral Home - McCalley Chapel in Adel followed by the service at 11 a.m. Burial will follow in the Altoona Cemetery.
Roger was born on Nov. 1, 1951, to Charles R. “Dick” and Dorothy E. (Stephens) Stacy in Winterset. He graduated from Adel High School with the class of 1970. He then graduated from Des Moines Area Community College with a degree in diesel mechanics. He worked for more than 40 years as a diesel mechanic, first for Pulley Freight Lines and finishing his career at George Transit Lines.
Roger enjoyed working on cars, trucks, motorcycles and anything mechanical. He could fix just about anything himself or give you guidance on how to do it yourself. Roger was creative and used his skills like welding, cutting and grinding to help anyone who needed something built or fixed. He looked like a rough and tough guy, but his family and friends knew he was the kindest and nicest person you could ever meet. He had a giving heart and would help anyone in need. He loved hanging out with his grandchildren and would do almost anything they asked, from teaching them things like how to fish, ride ATVs, shoot guns, work on cars; watching them play sports; and even to jumping on the trampoline and pulling them on a sled behind the four-wheeler. The best part was spending time with them and making them laugh.
Roger also had an unconditional love of animals, which began at an early age, raising hogs and chickens on the farm, and continued throughout his life with the companionship of his dogs.
Roger was preceded in death by his parents, Dick and Dorothy Stacy, and granddaughter, Brooklyn Neff.
He is survived by his daughter, Heather (Kim) Stacy-Howard; stepdaughter, Angela (Shane) Wagner; stepson, Jason Holsinger; and six grandchildren, Tim, Miguel, Isabella, Jada, Journee and Harper.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be donated to the American Cancer Society in memory of Roger.
