Obituary

Stacy Latham Angle passed away at Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln, Massachusetts, at the age of 90, on the night of February 19, 2021. Stacy is survived by his wife, Mary Ann, of Acton, Massachusetts, his three sons Steven, Jeff, and Rich, his four grandchildren Derrick, Tyler, Morgan, Christopher, and his great-granddaughter Grace.

Stacy was born on March 13, 1930, in Hennepin, Minnesota. He attended Northwestern University and then spent several years in the navy. He received a master’s degree from UCLA. Stacy spent most of his career working as an electrical engineer in the aerospace industry. His job with Honeywell took him to China Lake, California, where he met and proposed to Mary Ann Goetz. The two were married in Van Nuys, California, on June 22, 1957. Work then brought the couple to Massachusetts, where they raised their family in Sudbury, living for thirty-nine years on Powers Road. In retirement, Stacy and Mary Ann moved to their current residence in Acton.

Stacy’s first name struck many as unusual and was a source of some confusion and humor even in the last week of his life. It was a name Stacy bore proudly as it was both his father’s and his grandfather’s first name. To his wife Mary Ann, to whom he was married for almost sixty-four years, he was Stace. To his three sons, he was Dad. To his four grandchildren, Stacy would answer to Grandpa, Pepop, or Papa Stacy.His great-granddaughter just turned one and is too young to have a name for Stacy, but he made her smile the first day he met her.

Stacy’s focus was always on his family. He took his boys fishing on Cape Cod, skiing at King Ridge, and camping on Mount Desert Island in Maine. He helped his sons and grandchildren with math and physics homework. There were family trips to visit relatives in California and Minnesota and family cruises to celebrate his 50th wedding anniversary and 75th birthday.He was content to watch SpongeBob and even wore a SpongeBob t-shirt to make his grandchildren smile.

The Presbyterian Church of Sudbury was both a spiritual and a social focus of Stacy’s life. He and Mary Ann joined the church in 1962 and remained loyal members despite the COVID-19 pandemic, attending more than fifty zoom services. Stacy's sons' favorite memories are attending the Presbyterian Camp Wilmot as a family and participating in the annual Christmas pageants. Stacy sang in the church choir, served as treasurer, and taught Sunday school.The Angle family is grateful for the love and support that the church community provides.

Stacy had many hobbies. He loved chess and taught the game to others. He was a ham radio enthusiast, holding a unique call sign, W1QW. He spent years carefully cataloging family history as a genealogist. A history buff, Stacy visited all the state capitols. He was happy if a jigsaw puzzle was set up on a table.He always had mechanical puzzles, brainteasers, and Rubik’s cubes nearby that he loved to study and master. He played the harmonica and clarinet. Mary Ann and Stacy had a vacation home in Plymouth, Vermont, for many years. Stacy loved to explore the night sky during his time up north and "absorb the environment," a phrase that he coined and for which his family will always remember him. Vermont was a place where Stacy discovered the Weston Priory, and the music of the monks that live there was the soundtrack for family gatherings in Vermont.

Stacy was deliberate in all of his actions but most famous for how he savored one of his favorite foods, ice cream. Stacy had a special tiny spoon at home that he would use to make his chocolate chip ice cream serving last as long as possible. If he ate too much, he had the unusual tendency to have his wrists sweat and might exclaim, "oh, my," another of his favorite expressions.

In honoring and remembering Stacy, the Angle family is grateful for his patience, gentleness, and unconditional kindness. He was always a good sport,even giving the family a demonstration of what his hair looked like without his typical Vitalis grooming regimen. We smile when we think of his funny jokes and how he would laugh at them. There was nothing better than hearing Stacy chuckle.

An online memorial service will be conducted via Zoom on March 13, 2021, through the Presbyterian Church of Sudbury. A link will be posted at http://pcsudbury.org one day before the service

Although I never had the opportunity to meet Stacy, I read his story with so much familiarity and warmth. He was so much like the rest of the ham radio enthusiasts I know, loving his family and sharing his energy. I wish I had met him. May the angels welcome him into Paradise and may his memory be eternal!
