He will be remembered in a private memorial service. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests making a donation to the ALS Association at www.alsa.org.
I am the youngest daughter of Albert and Rosa Lee Franta from Baytown. My sisters were Peggy and Karen, sadly both deceased. We lived in Lakewood near Floyd and Huntice, as I recall. Paige was our cousin but he was closest in age to my sister Karen Franta Hawkins who passed away in December 2013. She and husband Pete enjoyed Paige's visit when they hosted a REL mini class reunion in the Boerne/San Antonio area at their home in the Fair Oaks Ranch community. I just learned from my cousin Gaylyn Lostak Pfahes from Austin of this and wish to extend my sympathy to the family. He was a lovely person with a big smile.

Although I did not personally know Mr. Stasney, my parents did and they named me after him. I met him once several years ago at one of my parents' reunions and it was nice to finally meet my namesake. My condolences to his family. RIP Paige.
