Patty and family,
We were deeply saddend to hear about T.R. He was a good man and a hell of a cowboy. He will be missed by everyone who knew him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you guys.

Sandy (my sister) just called me with the sad news about TR. I just want you to know that we are thinking about you and the kids and will remember all of you in our prayers.
TR was one-of-a-kind. I have been taking many trips down memory lane today-thinking of our college rodeo years. What great times we all had. TR was always our "captain". He just seemed to be able to lead us all in that quiet but firm way of his. He was a great person and will surely be missed.
Please take care, Patti, and cherish all those memories.
Dear Patti & family:
Tucker (my oldest son) called me today to tell me about T.R. Johnny & Sharon Holloway had told him about T.R.'s passing. I still can't believe T.R. is gone--what a great guy. He was an awesome friend, husband, father and grand-father and will be missed by many.
Oh I remember those good old rodeo days--what fun we had. And he was best man for my wedding to Walt. But my all time favorite T.R. memory is at the dance in Wagner after the rodeo and they played Roll Out The Barrel and here come T.R. and Walt out on the floor dancing with barrels!
Patti, always remember the good times, the laughs, the smiles, the love and yes, even remember the not-so-good times and even the tears. They will help you to heal.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

We are so sorry for your loss.Jim & Doreen Hursh Family - 12/27/2007
I remember the day that TR, Patti and Wylie came to Springfield. They came in TR’s beige Ford pickup with an authentic Ace Reid homemade plywood camper; complete with bronc saddles tied on top. TR & Wylie were fairly fresh out of Viet Nam with intentions of college and college rodeo. I asked my friend Jack who these guys were? Jack said he heard it was Wylie Schwalm and TR Stalley; one hellava bronc rider.
It turned out Jack was right, but we found out that TR was so much more than that. To this day, I am proud to call him my friend. This didn’t happen a long time ago, it happened only yesterday.
It always seems that when a friend passes away suddenly like this; that I ask myself, “Why didn’t I take the time to call TR or stop by to see him once in awhile.” It seems that we are always too busy to do simple little things like that. But still, I can say that even though I did not stay in touch very well, I often think about TR, Patti and Wylie and the good times we had.
The truth is (especially with old friends), a friend is for life and beyond. Even though I live with this regret, somehow a feeling deep down says that there will be a day when we will again renew old friendships in a far better place.
So I will say, “So long for now TR”.
So sorry to hear of the loss of TR. I'm Sandy and Sheila Pederson's younger sister; therefore I din't get to rodeo with him, but I was the tag along little sister at several rodeos. I remember him staying with Mom and Dad on weekends of rodeos. I especially remember Clearfield's rodeo. I was so lucky to have so many "big brothers" with everyone hanging around Mom and Dad's with the big sisters!!!! What a great time that was. I know he held a special place in my parents (Melvin & Maxine Pederson) hearts. Take care, we will keep you in our prayers.

Patti, Kari, Kelly, Colleen, and Colin and all: Our hearts are with you. I just learned today (Dec 28) that T.R. passed away. I really enjoyed knowing him. He was such a thoughtful person. May God bless you and comfort you. Love and miss you all. Take care. Shanna (Newland) Howell)& Guy and girls)Shanna (Newland) Howell - 12/28/2007
I didn't know T.R., however, you were always a caring co-worker. I know how difficult it is to go through the death of a spouse, especially at holiday time. My best to you and your family.
