John Stamey, 79, passed peacefully at his home, surrounded by his family and friends, on October 9, 2017. John was born July 15, 1938 in Akron to the late Rush and Clina Stamey. John was a loving husband, father and grandpa. (Papa) John was a lifetime resident of Springfield Township where he and his wife, Patricia, raised their family. John was a member of the Wayfarer Lodge #789. He retired as a truck driver and always made friends along his routes. He was an avid car enthusiast and loved to wash and shine his rides. John never met an animal that wasn’t his friend. Through it all, he never lost his sense of humor or his charm. He will be truly missed.
In addition to his parents, John was preceded in death by his brother, Verne and sister, Barbara (Gilbert). He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Patricia; daughters, Gerri (Steve) Kenda and Terri (Jeff) Pickens; grandchildren, Sara (John) Kurtz, Katie (Mike Mullins) Younkins and Johnathon Kenda; sister, Janis; brother, Bill (Paula); along with many nieces and nephews and his best friend, Bailey.
