Frisco, TX

Richard Knight Stofer II was born on September 16, 1948, in Akron, Ohio to parents Richard Knight Stofer I and Doris Lind Stofer (whom he comedically nicknamed “Grandma Doorless”). Rich, as he was commonly known to his family and friends, was the oldest of 4 brothers. He was also known to his wife Gail as “Pie” (short for “Sweetie Pie”), to his Grandchildren as “Pie Pie”, to his immediate family as “Taco Man”, to his Air Force squadron as “Turnip”, and to his AA flight crew as “Big Daddy”. Rich passed away peacefully at his home in Frisco, Texas, with his family by his side on February 7th, 2024, after a 2-year battle with prostate cancer. He fought hard and remained strong throughout his entire treatment process. Rich grew up in the Preston Hollow area of Dallas, Texas, and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in 1966. He grew up attending Lutheran Church with his family. The four Stofer boys enjoyed countless shenanigans throughout their childhood, including the time when he put his younger brother John in the trash can with the lid on when their mom came searching for him. When Rich and John were young, their nicknames were ‘Dickie & Jackie’. Rich & John talked almost daily on the telephone for decades and always referred to one another as ‘Captain Dickie’ and ‘Captain Jackie’. From an early age, Rich knew he wanted to fly airplanes, so he saved every dollar for flying lessons, working at Jack-in-the-Box, and other odd jobs. In high school circa ‘64/’65, Rich and a friend flew a small airplane up to St. Louis to see the Beatles in Concert and paid $5/ticket. He would later joke with his brother Jimmy who had gone to see Paul McCartney in Concert, that he (Rich) got to see McCartney perform “when he was with those other 3 guys.” Rich graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, in 1971 with a degree in Psychology. During college, he flew for the Forest Service and also flew Parachute Jumpers on weekends. After college, he was an Air Force Pilot for 5 years and served at the end of the Vietnam War. In the Air Force, Rich flew C-141, T-38, and T-37 airplanes. Rich was married to his first wife Stacy from 1971 to 1981 and they had a daughter Gretchen in Big Spring, Texas while Rich was still in the Air Force. They lived in New Jersey and Texas. During this period, Richard started flying for American Airlines in 1976 and retired in 2008 as a Senior Captain after 32 years of employment. He flew various types of airplanes at AA, including 777, 737, & 727. Rich married Gail Stofer in 1983 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and had a son Max, and a daughter Meg. They lived in Carrollton, McKinney, and most recently, for the past 4 years in Frisco, Texas. Rich and Gail celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary in May 2023. Throughout his life, Rich enjoyed working on and maintaining cars, skiing, auto-racing, duck hunting with his friend Eddie, shooting guns, and astronomy. He loved riding his Harley Davidson Motorcycle, hosting Taco Night for this family, watching Sci-Fi movies, and going to concerts. He was quite a sports car buff, owning several throughout the years. He enjoyed traveling all over the world, and especially scuba diving in sunny Caribbean locations like Grand Cayman. He was incredibly gifted as an artist, showcasing his talent in painting and Calligraphy. He loved to wear funny t-shirts and had a great sense of humor. When it came to his kids and grandkids, Rich enjoyed dressing up like the Easter Bunny for family Easter Egg Hunts, carving pumpkins at Halloween, and “posting” little ones on the wall to hear them giggle with delight. Rich enjoyed going out to eat with his friends and family and especially loved Tex-Mex & margaritas and pizza & red wine. Rich was loved by all who knew him and was a very laid-back, sweet, and caring person. He was also incredibly intelligent, practical, funny, and quick-witted. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to UT Southwestern, Baylor Scott & White Prosper, Texas Oncology, and Pathway Hospice for their continued care of Rich throughout his illness. Rich is survived by wife Gail Stofer of Frisco, Texas; children Gretchen Darby and her husband James of Prosper, Texas, Max Stofer and Jenn Wehba of Dallas, Texas, Meg Stofer and Trevor Trpkosh of Dallas, Texas; grandchildren Presley and twins Jagger & Jax Darby of Prosper, Texas; brothers John Stofer and his fiancée Helie Buck of Houston, Texas, Mike Stofer and his wife Deedra of Hot Springs, Arkansas, Jim Stofer and his wife Andrea of Dallas, Texas; nieces and nephews Nicole and John Michael, Alex, Keely Kristin and Paul Stofer. He is preceded in death by his father, Richard Knight Stofer I, who passed away in 1994. Rich will be laid to rest with military honors at the Dallas Fort Worth National Cemetery on a date to be announced soon. In addition, the family is planning a Celebration of Life; with details to be posted soon. If desired, contributions may be made in Rich’s honor to the charitable organization of your choice.

Frisco, TX

James “Jim” Philip Budarf, Sr., known better to most of his family as “PopPop,” passed away after a brief illness on February, 11, 2024 in Frisco, Texas. Although he battled several serious medical issues in recent years (including Alzheimer’s), he never lost his zest for life or his joy in meeting others. He was born June 6, 1950, in New York City, New York to Philip Kladis and Irene Chalamides. Although he proudly grew up in Yonkers, New York, where he became an Eagle Scout, he finally came to his senses and moved to Texas to attend Texas A&M University. He was, forever after, a proud Aggie. After graduation he joined the Marine Corps and was honorably discharged. Jim spent his entire career working as an electrical engineer and retired from Seimens Corporation. Among his many passions, Jim served as the first fire chief of the Trophy Club Volunteer Fire Department from 1982 – 1984 and, years later, came back to volunteer again. When not working or fighting fires, Jim could either be found traveling with his wife, Brenda, or spending time with his family. One of his greatest pleasures was spending time with his grandchildren and doing his best to spoil them rotten. Jim is survived by his wife of 33 years, Brenda Shields Budarf of Frisco, Texas, and his sister, Barbara Lane of Ocala, Florida. He is also survived by his five children: Melissa Harper and husband Geoffrey of Dallas, Texas, Monica Wolfe and wife Jen of Plano, Texas, Debbie Mashburn of Ringgole, Georgia, Wesley Wolfe and wife Erin of Cleveland, Ohio, and James Philip Budarf, II (Jim) and wife Lisa of Graham, Texas. Finally, he is survived by his pride and joys, his 14 grandchildren and one great grandchild: Tatum Circle, Wilson Wolfe, Dylan Mashburn, Mason Harper, Skylar Mashburn, James Philip Budarf, III (Trey), Victoria Harper, Aiden Wolfe, Jackson Budarf, Abby Wolfe, Easton Budarf, Isabella Wolfe, Kayden Wolfe, Ryder Wolfe, and the newest addition, James Philip Budarf, IV (Quade). A memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at 2 p.m. at Stonebriar Funeral Home, 10375 Preston Rd., Frisco, Texas 75033. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Alzheimer’s Association (act.alz.org).
