Service Date: 10/11/2014

Richard N.Stouffer, Jr. 87, of South Pasadena, FL and formerly of Montoursville, PA, died peacefully on September 14, 2014 in St. Petersburg, Florida. He was born on November 11, 1926 in Camden, NJ to parents Elizabeth Lippincott and Richard Nuttall Stouffer. He was the brother of the late Shirley Stouffer Goslin. "Dick" was raised in Lansdowne, PA where he made many lifelong friends and met his future wife, Peggy Louise Bressler. After graduating from Lansdowne High in 1944 he enlisted in the US Navy and was stationed in Pensacola, FL. He later was able to attend Temple University through the GI Bill and graduated in 1950. He made many friends as a member of Sigma Pi, and earned a degree in Business. Dick and Peggy were married in 1949 and began their new life in Radnor, PA. They had three daughters born in three different cities in Pennsylvania. The Stouffer family’s last move in PA was to Montoursville, where they lived for 31 years.

Dick’s outgoing personality and quick wit made him the ideal candidate as a sales representative; he worked mainly for companies in the audio-visual field, including Xerox and 3M, and travelled most of Pennsylvania's highways and byways while covering large territories. Often referred to as "King of the Road", he ended his career with Hoyer's Photo Supply, a small family owned business in Williamsport, PA.

After Peggy's death in 1996, Dick was grateful for the new friends he had made, and he continued to stay in touch with old friends during his 20 years in Florida. He was an honored volunteer at Neighborly Senior Center’s Alzheimer’s Support Group, and often drove others to meetings. He and his close companion Barbara Burke travelled to Europe, Hawaii and family events later in his life.

Dick is survived by his daughters, Suzanne (Michael) Nunziata, Elizabeth Stouffer (Frank Amaral) and Amy (Tony) Leta; grandchildren Nicole Bjornvick, Frank, Dominic and Alex Amaral, and Angela and Gina Leta, and great-granddaughter, Avery Amaral. He proudly attended all college graduations of his three daughters and three granddaughters.

He also leaves behind many cherished friends, cousins, nieces and nephews in the Philadelphia and Williamsport areas, as well as Florida and many other parts of the country.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to a charity of your choice or to the WASD Education Foundation (attn. Margaret B. Stouffer award), 2780 West Fourth Street, Williamsport, PA. www.wasd.org

Dr. Michael P. Brignola

Service Date: 10/11/2014 Funeral Mass

         Michael Peter Brignola, M.D.  was born June 29, 1921 to Gaetano P. Brignola and Ida (Catenacci).  Eldest brother to Armand and John, he was raised in South Philadelphia and went to Central High School.   Dad matriculated to the University of Pennsylvania at the age of 16 graduating with his B.A. degree. Michael continued his education at the Hahnemann Medical College where he graduated in 1945.  He then began his rotating internship at Hahnemann Hospital. In 1946 he served as a Captain in the United States Army for two years.  The following year he did an internship at Cornell University Medical School, the Bellevue Hospital, New York.  Dad came back to Philadelphia to complete a medical residency at Hahnemann Hospital from 1949-1951.   

            During his tenure as Associate Professor of Medicine at Hahnemann Medical College dad met his beautiful wife, Dolores.   Married for 58 years they shared a busy life together raising four children Michael, Barbara, Guy, and Debra.  Our father’s first medical office was in Center City Philadelphia where he resided for 25 years.  His practice evolved into the perfect blend of internal medicine with specialty interest in pulmonology.   During the 1960’s dad frequently published articles on pulmonary and respiratory disease for Philadelphia Medicine Magazine.   Dad then moved his private practice to Bala Cynwyd.   During that transition dad decided to take his own x-rays and develop them in his office so that his practice could be more efficient and expedite diagnosis and treatment for his patients.  For the next 30 years he continued working tirelessly and compassionately.  Upon his retirement the x-ray equipment was donated to a chest clinic in Romania.

  Our father was a consummate professional with a passion for his craft surpassed only by his love and devotion for family and friends. Our father loved the shore.  The Brignola family’s fondest memories are of Dad sitting on his beach chair at the waters edge reading his journals; the infamous journals that seemed to fill every room of our house.    We always knew how important he was to us, and us to him.

            Our father’s work ethic was tireless.  He worked 7 days a week always donning a suit with cordovan wingtip shoes with leather laces.  He always looked impeccable.   The weekends were no exception as he visited his patients in the hospital and would then continue his day by making house calls.  Any hour of the night our father would get up and meet his patients personally in the Emergency Room because they were his patients and that’s just what he did.   Through the years all of us in our travels have been stopped by many and asked “A Brignola?”  “Any relation to Dr. Brignola?” They would always proclaim:  “He is the doctor’s doctor”…” your father is an excellent diagnostician”, “He is a true gentleman”, “He is a remarkable man”,  “they  just don’t make doctors like him anymore. “

            Dad still found extra time to be involved in numerous medical societies and positions; FACP (Fellow of the American College of Physicians), FACCP (Fellow of the American College of Chest Physicians); Pennsylvania Medical Society, American Society of Internal Medicine, Philadelphia County Medical Society.   In 1995 Hahnemann University awarded him for 50 years of medical practice. He was given Emeritus Professor status at Hahnemann Medical University.   Dad served as President of the Medical Staff at St. Agnes Hospital.  In 1996 after 44 years on staff he was given the St Agnes Achievement Award for Excellence and Dedicated Service.  Dad also enjoyed the professional and personal relationships he developed as a member of the Union League of Philadelphia for 44 years. 

            Dad’s retirement in 2003 was followed by a over a decade surrounded by his family and friends.  Most importantly dad had mom, Dolores by his side, as it is and ever shall be.  Missed but never forgotten. 

            Our father loved St. Matthias Church and would be humbled seeing it filled with family and friends.  Thank you for joining us today in faithful celebration of Michael Peter Brignola.  (Daad)
