It is with great sadness that the family of Stacey Vant announce his sudden passing on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, at Hamilton General Hospital. Stacey was born on July 21,1968. Beloved son of the late Steve Vant (2000) and Donna Vant (2017). Stacey will be infinitely missed by his two children, Ryan and Brooke, as well as their mother Brandi. He will be lovingly remembered by his siblings Jamie, Ray, Shawn, Shari, and Jason (Kandy). Uncle Stacey will be deeply missed by his nieces and nephews: Christopher, Amanda, Samantha (Dave), Kamrin, Keith (Shian), Julia (Ryan), Eric, Mitchell, Dylan, and great nephews, Crosby and Carter, and by his great niece, Cadence. Predeceased by many aunts, uncles and cousins. Stacey had a longtime close group of friends, like brothers, who will miss him extensively and feel his loss terribly, as well as many other friends and colleagues. He’ll also be lovingly remembered by Andrea.

Stacey loved playing golf, pool and spending time with his children, family and friends any chance he could get. His infectious smile, laughter and cherished memories will forever be remembered by those who knew him. Big Daddy loved everyone. Cremation has taken place, and an intimate service for immediate family will be held.

Stacey was a care free fun loving man who always had a smile on his face. Even as co workers he always made me laugh and it was always enjoyable and a pleasure working beside him. He never sweat the small things and his smile will be missed. Our hearts and prayers go out to his two children and family during their time of sorrow.
