Stacy Dean White
April 13, 1969 ~ September 30, 2013
Stacy Dean White was born April 13, 1969 in Albany OR. He moved to Washington when he was three and grew up in Brewster with his mother, Charlotte; brothers, Jesse and Darryl; and sisters, Donna and Amanda. In his youth, he loved to ride motorcycles, tinker with jacked up pick-up trucks, and spend time in the shop, working on projects. Stacy lived his adult years in East Wenatchee, WA, where he raised his children, Kristin and Josh. Stacy worked as a pipe welder and pipe fitter for 22 years, as a member of Local 32 in Wenatchee, where he developed close friendships with his “brothers”.
Stacy was passionate about spending time with his family and many friends. His shop was a gathering place for friends and family to hang out, spending many hours helping others with projects big and small. His shop was a place to laugh and talk, a place to teach his children and nieces and nephews lessons about life and for them to confide in him and seek advice. Stacy opened his home, not only for family gatherings, but also to anyone needing a place to live. Stacy was a very giving man with a heart of gold. He was very generous, genuine and forgiving. He will always be remembered by his sparkling eyes and wonderful sense of humor. You always knew you were important in Stacy’s life and you always got a big bear hug, girls and guys alike.
Stacy loved hunting, fishing and camping and looked forward to these adventures with his family and friends. He loved race cars and spent many hours with friends, building them from the ground up. He could often be found in the pits at the Wenatchee Super Oval.Stacy was an avid fan of his sister, Donna’s, Wenatchee women’s softball team. Attending games and rooting them on, and hosting the end of year celebrations.
Stacy is survived by his mother and stepfather, Charlotte and Wes Glessner; daughter, Kristen and fiance; Bret Desmond; son, Joshua; grandchildren, Brookelyn, Brodie, Burlyn and Mia Rose; sisters, Donna and Amanda; brothers, Jesse and Darryl; nieces and nephews, Kristina, Bryce, Whitney, Paige, Bradley, Kalie, Harley, CJ, Kolbie, Madison and Samantha. He will also be missed by special friend and love of his life Gail Sauve. Stacy was preceded in death by his stepfather, Lester McCullough.
