Clarence “Stacey” Eastham, Jr. went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on December 16, 2021, at the age of eighty-four. Born in Galveston, he loved fishing and spending time with family on the Gulf Coast, and lived in Houston until he retired to Colorado in 2006. Graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, he went on to serve in the United States Navy as Commander, and then as a long-time reservist. He was a stockbroker for many years at Dean Witter Reynolds and Sunbelt Securities. Stacey would be quick to say that his career and accomplishments paled in comparison to his family and English bulldogs. In his retirement years his favorite spots were fishing the rivers of northern Colorado, and watching for whales off the Nantucket coast. His character was his most defining quality, being a friend to everyone, and always doing the right thing. Stacey is survived by his wife Susan, his son, Clay, his four sisters, Betty Simpson (Houston), Sally Chapoton (Buck, Chevy Chase, Maryland), Ruth Flournoy (Dan, Houston), and Mary King (Carl, Houston), and daughters Emily Heurman (Scott, Nashville), Kristi Ison (Stuart, Houston), along with four grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Our heartfelt thanks to Stacey’s nurses, Angela, Taylor, Ashley, and Kristi, and to the many friends who have surrounded him in prayer through the last months. A private graveside service is planned for a later date in Hitchcock, Texas. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Pathways Hospice of Northern Colorado, 305 Carpenter Road, Fort Collins, Colorado, 80525.
