MICHAEL REGINALD STASKY
Michael Reginald Stasky, 82, passed away Tuesday, October 24, 2017.
Services were Friday, October 27, 2017.
Michael was born October 24, 1935, in Bremond, Texas, to Mary and Michael Stasky. He was the fifth of their six children. Michael grew up in Bremond, met his childhood sweetheart, Frances, and they married November 20, 1957. Their first child, Michaline, was born in 1958. In 1960, Michael took a job with North Texas Steel and moved to Fort Worth. Michael and Frances had their second child, Christopher, in 1970. He also worked as a maintenance supervisor for ABM and managed Guys and Dolls in Fort Worth with Frances. In 1991, his first grandchild, Stephanie, was born and became the apple of his eye.
After retiring from ABM, he opened Stasky's Aluminum Can Recycling, which we all just know as "The Can Place". Even though it was his business, he used it as his own social club. Working there was often a family affair, and he could spend all day talking to customers. He always had an open ear and often a smart alecky remark. He always knew the right thing to say to put a smile on your face and make your day better.
Michael was always a father and grandpa first, and took great pride in his family. We will always carry him in our hearts and memories.
He is preceded in death by his wife, Frances Stasky; his parents, Mary and Michael Stasky; and brothers, Frank, Marion and Richard Stasky.
Survivors include his daughter, Michaline Elko; son, Christopher Stasky; granddaughter, Stephanie Elko; and sisters, Cecila Holt and Doris Stasky.
Lucas and Blessing Funeral Home handled the arrangements. 817-295-9000
