Dale E. Stacy, 60

SACO — Dale E. Stacy, 60, of Saco, died peacefully on Jan. 8, 2013, at Seal Rock Health Care in Saco.

He was born in Portland on Dec. 14, 1952, the son of the late Randolph E. and Barbara (Edmunds) Stacy. Dale grew up in Kezar Falls and graduated from Sacopee Valley High School in 1972. He was a self-taught machinist and worked many years in the Bridgton and Harrison areas.

In 2008, at the age of 56, he suffered a devastating stroke that landed him in rehab for a year. He vowed to leave that place walking out the front door and after hard work and determination he reached his goal. Even though he used wheelchair, he was able to go wherever he chose. In 2009, he later moved to the Inn at Atlantic Heights in Saco. Sadly in September 2012, he was diagnosed with throat cancer. He fought this battle head on with a great amount of determination, but lost the battle on Jan. 8, 2013.

Dale will be sadly missed by a sister Vicki of Windham; an aunt and several cousins in Florida and Arizona.

Visitation was held at Dolby Funeral Chapel, 434 River Road, Windham, on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013, from 12 until 2 p.m. A celebration of life immediately followed at 2 p.m. Private spring burial will be in the Riverside Cemetery, Kezar Falls.
