  • So sorry for your loss to the family. Mr. Stack was one of my teachers in Brennan and he was always so patient and kind. He never made any of the kids feel dumb for not knowing and he was an excellent teacher. I hated the subject but loved Mr. Stack. RIP, sir. You did your job very well and you were a kind person.

    Saddened to learn of Mr Stack’s passing. So many fond memories in the classroom and on the softball field. He was a fair and kind man. Thinking of you all during the difficult time. May he rest in peace. 

  • My deepest sympathies to Larry’s family. I have known Larry for some 25 years at least. I have been his dental hygienist and saw him religiously every 4 months. Larry was a genuinely good man and spoke often about his family and the fur babies. He had helped my son get a job at Bass pro in his senior year of high school in the Santa winter wonderland. I was always amazed by his positive attitude even in the midst of his health issues. He was one of my favorite patients and I’m deeply saddened by his loss. I will always remember him ?

  • Larry was my mentor that led me to who I am today.  Jean, I’m sorry for your loss.  He was an AWESOME teacher.

  • My deepest condolences to the Stack family. Mr. Stack was my favorite teacher in Brennan Middle School back in the early 70’s and Miss Gray was my homeroom teacher. I never forgot his kindness and how he made Science so interesting. I am greatful to have had such a great teacher who clearly cared about his students. I was saddened to see his obituary in the Sun Chronicle. My thoughts and prayers are with you. God be with you at this difficult time.
