Obituary - Richard Douglas Stage
August 29, 1951 - December 14, 2018
Rich Stage passed away peacefully in his sleep after a brief illness at home on Anna Maria Island, Florida. Surrounded by family, he left this earth without fear or regret. This was a man who loved and lived life to the fullest. He leaves a great many stories, and fond remembrances.
Rich was an avid outdoor enthusiast who enjoyed mountain skiing, picturesque hiking, good tennis and bad golf. Quiet, reflective beach walks became his best friend at the end of his life on this planet. His big beautiful smile will be remembered by all that knew and loved him.
A celebration of Rich’s life will be held at Buck’s T-4 Lodge in Big Sky on January 30, 2019 from 5 - 8 p.m. Please join us in joy, at this very special gathering, in honor of an incredibly special man.
In memory of Rich, “Pay it Forward” with some small act of kindness. Buy a total stranger a cup of coffee, an ice cream cone, a beer at the brewery. Give a big bear hug, a genuine compliment, a double tip. Make someone else’s day. The world will be a sweeter place.
