January 27, 1950 ~ September 5, 2023

Kevin Gale Stauffer, Sr., affectionately known as “Pop Pop,” passed away surrounded by his family on September 5, 2023, at Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center.  A resident of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Kevin was born in Bossier City, Louisiana, on January 27, 1950, to the late Kenneth George Stauffer and Dorothy Ann Gleason.


Kevin was a 1967 graduate of Morton High School in Morton, Mississippi, and earned his bachelor’s degree from Millsaps College, Jackson, Mississippi.  While at Millsaps, Kevin was a member of Alpha-Upsilon Chapter of Kappa Sigma.  He was active in intramural sports and was a cheerleader for the Millsaps Majors. After retiring from medical technology sales, Kevin spent his time working with his hands.  He was a remarkable craftsman and artist, loved to cook, and made the best gumbo friends and family ever put in their mouths.  He was an incredibly kind and humble man who never met a stranger and would do anything in his power to help someone in need.  His kindness touched many lives in his 73 years.


Kevin leaves behind his loving wife of 40 years, Wanda Kay Stauffer; his daughter, Caroline Turney (Brandon) of Tupelo, Mississippi; his stepson, Scott Cooper (Jennifer) of Central, Louisiana; his daughter-in-law, Beth Stauffer-Perez (Hal) of Prairieville, Louisiana; his sister Katie Stauffer of Washington state, his brother Jeff Twiss (Cathy) of Gautier, Mississippi, and the mother of his children, Debbie Brangenberg (Carl) of Tupelo, MS.  He also leaves behind his beloved grandchildren Dixie and Skip Stauffer, Parks and Shelby Gale Turney, Savannah and Hailey Cooper, along with a host of family and dear friends.  He was preceded in death by his father Kenneth George Stauffer, mother Dorothy Ann Twiss, step-father Arnie Twiss, brother Jon Twiss, and his best friend and son, Sergeant Kevin Gale Stauffer, Jr.


Pallbearers will be Dr. Kenneth Williams, Dr. Donnie Marascalco, Bruce Ray and Earl Yancey.

    “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Sorry to hear this news. I really enjoyed Kevin’s unique sense of humor. We will be out of town on the 30th and will not be able to attend the service. Glad that Kevin is no longer suffering.

    Kevin and I “bonded” from all the surgeries I had on my body and all of his health problems. He was one of my best friends and always had time to listen. I shall miss his gentle voice, sense of humor, and our connecting at church. Fly high, Kevin. I shall never forget your friendship. It makes me happy that you are no longer suffering and are walking with our LORD.

    I will always remember Kevin as my personal professor. The knowledge he shared with me about medicine and cooking. Now I can grill a tenderloin with out having to throw it away. And our political views on the world.
    Once he told me Kay’s medical knowledge is so vast she has forgotten more than most doctor’s ever lean in medical school. His dry sense of humor always made me laugh. He was so proud of you and all of his children.
    He will be dearly missed.
    I pray that God wraps all of you in his loving arms while going through this time of grief. Love and blessings.
    Debra and Barry
