It is with great sadness that Stacy’s family announces his sudden passing on Saturday, March 16, 2019, at the age of 53 years.

Left to cherish his memory is his son, Nicolas Sanftleben; father Howard Sanftleben; siblings Trevor (Phyllis), Jessica; Lisa (Dave), Jaida and Kaitlyn; Nancy (Dustin), Boston; the mother of his son, (Tracey), Chelsey and Brandon; as well as extended family and friends. Stacy was predeceased by his mother, Phyllis Sanftleben, and both sets of grandparents.

Stacy attended St. Henry’s School, elementary and junior high, and graduated in 1984 from the Melville Comprehensive School. After graduation he worked in Melville, then decided he wanted to serve his country and enlisted in the Canadian Armed Forces from 1987-1999. Stacy was very proud to serve his country, as was his family so very proud of him. During his time with the Canadian Armed Forces, he completed two tours of Bosnia and one tour of the Gaza Strip. Stacy’s pride in serving his country could be seen when he was driving in his truck with his veteran plate, as well his truck tailgate having a beautiful logo of the Canadian Armed Forces.

Stacy’s proudest moment was when his son, Nicolas, was born; becoming a dad was the most rewarding day for him. This father and son created a very special bond. Not a day went by without them talking, having great conversations and spending time together. The love for his son truly showed each time Stacy spoke of Nicolas; his face would always light up and he would say “you know what? I have the best and smartest son.”

Stacy enjoyed his time when he lived on the island and had the ocean as his back yard. He would spend time out on the water in his Boston Whaler boat salmon fishing and just enjoying the peacefulness. Stacy moved back to Melville and went to work as a long-haul trucker. After a couple of years of trucking, he moved on to work for Trican Well Services in Drumheller and Red Deer, where he currently was a lead hand. Stacy enjoyed his work with Trican, the opportunities given to him, his coworkers and the management. He was always willing to share some of his knowledge and experience. Anyone who knew Stacy would also know anything he operated or owned was in immaculate condition. His red Ford F150 was meticulous both inside and out, and you better remember to have clean shoes when you entered his truck.

Stacy had a passion for NASCAR; we all knew what time not to call Stacy, as he was glued to television watching on race day. He also loved having the time to fish and, of course, shining up the truck. He would say he was a connoisseur of Saskatoon pies and could tell you that Dafoe 24-7 has the best Saskatoon pie to be found in his travels. However, his biggest passion was having time with Nicolas.

Donations in his memory can be made to: Wounded Warriors of Canada or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

My sisters and I were very saddened to hear of Stacy's passing. We all remember him as a sweet boy who grew up to be a sweet man. When he lived in Calgary, he and I would meet for lunch and a long chat. He'd always ask how my car was running, would scold me for not taking better care of it and then very patiently explain (again) how to do that.
We send our love and prayers to Uncle Howard, cousins Trevor, Lisa and Nancy, and mostly to his son Nicolas.

Howard,Lisa and Trevor,
I'm so sad to hear one of my old neighbors has passed. So sorry for your loss. The thing I remember the the most about Stacy from when we were kids is that he was always a battler. I'm sure he and Mom are having a good time together. Take care. :)
