In November of 2007, Stacy's life changed forever when his family's van was struck by a drunk driver one mile from their home. Stacy, his wife Ellen (36), his son Bronson (10), his daughters Lequisa (18), Sydney (9), Shelly (4), and Ellie Ann-Marie (2), were all in the vehicle that night. Tragically, only Stacy and Shelly survived that night.
