Obituary for Ralph RJ Stalesky

McHenry, Illinois | Age 23

Loving Son, Brother, Uncle, Grandson and Friend


Ralph "RJ" T. Stalesky, age 23, passed away on Saturday, October 13, 2018. He was born in McHenry on July 4, 1995, the son of Ralph A. Stalesky and Belinda (Rhodes) Morrison.
RJ was a beloved son, brother, uncle, grandson and friend. He had a heart of gold and a smile that lit up the room. He enjoyed football and baseball. He worked for a tree cutting service and plumber by trade. He loved his family as much as they all loved him. RJ loved helping his grandpa cut trees in the yard and make bonfires. When he was in the room his presence was felt and laughter rang throughout; because RJ always cracked jokes and made everyone smile. That's who he was; he was the one that wanted everyone to be happy, smile and laugh.
He will be missed by so many and never forgotten. RJ will be forever in our hearts.
He is survived by his parents, Belinda (Rich) Morrison, Ralph (Christa) Stalesky; siblings: Katie, Shelby, Luke; half-brother: Matt Dykstra; step-siblings: Allison, Zach, Courtnee, Matthew, Destiney, Devin, Kaylee, Kamron.
RJ was preceded in death by his grandfather, Thomas Rhodes and great-grandparents, John and Virginia Ruppel.
