  1. Mrs Stacho and Family,
    I would like to express my sincere condolences. Mr Stacho was a great teacher. I was a student of his at John Hay High School, 1981 to 1983.
    He will forever be remembered.
    Memories keeps us close…
    In my prayers.
    Cynthia ( Garrett) Acoff

  2. I got to know Bill for a very short time, and appreciated his visits to Esther’s room at Kemper House. I was not aware of his interests and occupation and it is sad that we could not converse together as our lives are very similar. My heartfelt sympathy to you Linda and the family.

  3. My condolences to the Stacho family! I had Mr. Stacho at John Hay High as one of my teachers. Great man and teacher. He will be missed. Will be keeping the family in prayer.
