In retirement he enjoyed real estate investment and “junkin”. Holly loved nothing more than a good real estate deal or a great  “junkin” find!  He had a special business savvy for finding a good deal!  Holly and Ernestine had booths in antique malls in Granbury and Benbrook. For 17 years they had a space at Warrenton during the Roundtop Antique Sale.

Beloved by his family, he had the special tribute of having two of his grandchildren named for him; Holly Danielle Peterson and Logan Wesley DeLeon. 

Holly is survived by his three daughters and their spouses, Rick and Carla Trussell of Stephenville, Ron and Kaye Quinn of De Leon and Danny and Leslie Peterson of Aledo. He is survived by 6 grandchildren, Daron Trussell (Hillary)of Stephenville, Lindsay DeLeon (Max) of McAllen, Jeremy Quinn ((Kristy) of Joshua, Dusty Quinn (Leah) of Brock, Tarren Peterson of Chicago, Illinois, and Holly Peterson of Washington, D.C.  He is also survived by 10 great-grandchildren; Keller and Lola Trussell; Aiden, Wyatt, and Logan DeLeon; Miller, Granger, and Chandler Quinn; Makenna and Snyder Quinn. 

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Ernestine; his parents Barm and Ida Stacy; his brothers Aubrey and Albert Stacy and his sister Polly Jacobs. 

Holly loved his dog, Lucy, his loyal companion. She was recused from Stephenville Humane Society and donations in Holly’s memory to the local animal shelter would be much appreciated. 

Stacy family ask that those who attend the memorial service PLEASE WEAR  MASKS.
