When his nation called, he answered by joining the US Army. Stahl worked briefly as a Texas State trooper but found his calling as a technician for GTE/Verizon. Stahl found great joy in coaching little league baseball and softball. Several nights a week were spent at the fields with dinner being from the snack bar. Many of the relationships he made with his players have lasted to this day. After retirement Stahl became a regular at the smoke ring. Watching the price is right with his friends while he enjoyed a cigar became his daily ritual. Stahl enjoyed going on semiannual cruises with his brother Robert Whitten, especially looking forward to Ponchos Back Yard. Never going further into Cozumel than this. He was a people person and loved to make a friend everywhere he went. Above all else he loved his family, and spending time with them. Words cannot convey how caring a person Stahl was. He felt genuine empathy for everyone he met. The lives he touched are uncountable, and the impressions he made are indelible.
