Reflections for Sergeant Stacy Edward Levay

I was there at Andersen Air Force Base, remember the 633 security police. I was the NCOIC of security place armory. I recall that Mount Pinatubo eruption in the Philippines that brought Sergeant Levay to Andersen. I lived near the back gate that the assailants went out of. By the time I pulled my personal firearm, and set up at the back gate, they were already through. Sergeant Levay gave his life and performance of duty. Nothing will ever replace it.

Yes where IS Alice never heard from her again.

Thank you all for your reflections!
These memories, connections will keep him alive in our hearts. His family was devastated but found ways to live FOR him. Please honor his successful short life by also living according to your values.
His love was pure, he saved lives that day and was true to his airman oath. He modeled integrity. He died putting his life before others. Honor him by looking after your fellow men, women and communities.
I still miss him and visit his grave often.
My son serves as a Marine and has the sense of duty Stacy modeled to all.
Love you Stace )

I was stationed with Stacy in the Philippines. I saw a request by his mom for photos. I tried to email them to the email she left, but it bounced back. If someone can give her my email ([email protected]) I'd be happy to send them to her.

Sgt. Levay,
On today, the 30th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I was a USN MD and was in the ER when Stacy was brought into the US Naval Hospital on Guam. There before me was another young American, injured while serving our great nation, in a far away place. Before going to medical school, I was a civilian police officer for 11 years and had a special respect for Law Enforcement personnel. I was saddened that day by the story which resulted in his injuries, and felt a genuine heaviness as I considered that his family back home will now have to work their way through this life changing tragedy. I pray God’s grace on Stacy’s family, and may they experience a grand reunion with him, when they see him again in Heaven. My love to you all…

I was a doctor with the US Navy and attended to him when he came into the ER at Naval Hospital Guam . Although I had never met him, my heart ached for the loss of another of my fellow service members. I think of him and other members of our armed forces, that I cared for, who never came home to their families. May God bless your family and may you be reunited in heaven. 612 229 4896, Roger , MD

Today we will meet for another hearing for the man who killed my brother. I wish that these hearings disappeared but because Stacy was worth pause to revisit the a life that was gone too fast. He was the boy in the neighborhood, as kids, who would come out to psuh the younger ones on sleds down the hill on a snow day. He was the one that was easy going and never a bother to be around, he was older by 9 years, my step brother and the bond with he and I was very loving. I miss him still today. He gave me a lot of hurts donuts and was someone who today would be smiling and taking me to a movie in my dad's VW Van. Kind-was what I knew of him. Kind to a fault in the end. Thanks for sharing what you remember of him.

I ran across Stacy's memorial page yesterday. I was stationed with Stacy in Germany, in the 568/569 Security Forces, Einsiedlerhof/ Kapaun Air Stations, from 1986-1989. We used to go downtown together, hitting the bars and clubs. Stacy was always a lot of fun to be around. When I was about to leave Germany, I sold my car to Stacy (that is another story for another day). I lost track of Stacy after I left, but I heard a rumor that he had been killed in the line of duty trying to stop a robbery. RIP my brother!

I arrived at Anderson shortly after Sgt. Levay’s murder. I was stationed with the 633rd SFS. Most don’t know but I was asked to wear Sgt. Levay’s service dress jacket and take a picture with his Airman’s medal on it. I did this in honor of his sacrifice. The last I seen of this photo it was displayed proudly in the BDOC.

I will always remember that day; the search, the escorts to the navy brig, the trial, but most importantly...your bravery and your dedication to duty. During my career as a SF Flight Chief and superintendent I would call up your sacrifice - your courage as an example for my young troops. You humble me and you will always be in my thoughts brother. I salute you.

I appreciate all of the people who remember Stacy. He was a wonderful son and I was always so proud of him and I miss him daily. March 2017 his dad joined him and his brother Joel passed away this February 2018. Both died of broken hearts. If there are pictures you would like to get to me I can be contacted through Washington Concerns of Police Survivors at [email protected].

It's December and you are still heavy in my presence, in fact- the contractor working on my house right now reminds me strongly of you in many ways. still after all these years you come to me in my dreams vividly and I understand now the reason you would want to make a mark in this world through sacrifice. There was no kinder brother to grow up with, your heart was golden and you are still missed. I never forget December 29th. I hope daddy is with you now. Your memory is very much alive today. I welcome details about his final days for closure still.

I'm currently stationed at Andersen AFB. We recently completed a new outdoor pavillion/guardmount room and are naming it in Sgt Levay's honor. If anyone has contact with his immediate family our commander would like to send them some photos of the dedication. You can contact me.

I met Stacey when I was civilian employee at Ramstien AFB.
we had many good times, a lot of laughs, and about as many tears.
for some reason he was weighing heavy on me today.

God Bless, my friend.

I just found this page. My sincere condolences to the Levay family As the LE Desk Sergeant on duty this is one day I will never forget. Stacy had stopped by the LE Desk and we were talking when the Commissary called for a funds escort. Stacy stated he would do it. The details of that day will forever be remember by me. The worst part is knowing that the robbery was planned by a coward, a SP member. Stacy had a bright future ahead of him and performed bravely on that dark day. God bless.

I remember the day Stacy passed like it was yesterday. I received the call as the AFOSI duty agent and recalled I had just met Stacy a few days before this happened and enjoyed a great conversation with him. It was tough to handle. However, proud to have been part of a great team of folks from AFOSI, the 633rd SPS, the FBI and the Guam Police Department that worked tirelessly to track down these cowards and bring them to justice. I will always remember Stacy, his service, and ultimate sacrifice.

I didn't know you, but when I was stationed there as a cop from 98-00, I learned of your story. The ambush of cowards, and reading of Simoy's over turned verdict from death to life in prison is just another reason in a long line of tragic reasons the system is flawed. Rest in Peace brother.

My sincere condolences to the Levay family. Tracy L Wallace...some of us former US Air Force policemen would like to contact the family in order to personally convey our condolences. Do you, by any chance, have contact information for them?

Stacy...because of you I decided to do Security Police Augmentee Duty during my TDY on Guam...they had your name displayed on the LE window...I was so touch by what happened to you that I wanted to represent for all accounts a very fine man and airman. I was also sadden by the fact that you died on your birthday...I have always had the policy of never working on my birthday...I really wished you hadn't either that day...I never met you but wanted to show my respect for you by being a volunteer...tow the line that you well as lay down my life for another as you did...the newspapers didn't give all the details but I was told that you sacrificed your life for the Commissary clerk's...what a man/airman for doing that...I hope when day comes that you will be one of the people I get to meet in the afterlife...RIP STACY...I have not forgotten you in all this time and I promise you I never will my brother in arms.
