Hugh Klein (HK) Staiger of Palmyra, VA departed this life peacefully on June 9, 2022. He was born October 8, 1922 in Crafton, PA, the first son of Daniel Staiger and Juliana Flora Klein. Hugh frequently commented that in his younger life, during the Great Depression, he didn’t know that the family was poor since everybody was poor. He attended the proverbial one room school, where he ate a lunch made by “Mother”. Surely he must have played marbles and such on the playground. There were no buses then and he walked through the woods along the one-mile long trail no matter the weather. Home life was simple, with a bed to share, crows to shoot, a cow to milk, water to haul, and chickens to pluck. There was the weekly Grit newspaper for news since they had no radio. Electricity and running water came just before he left home, while indoor plumbing and freedom from the outhouse became realities after he left home. His chores served him well, teaching him independence and thankfulness for the “good” life. Hugh was a superior student and in 1940 he graduated from Slippery Rock High School in Slippery Rock, PA. He attended Keystone School in Pittsburgh, PA and worked as a draftsman for Duquesne Light Co. In December 1942, he joined the US Navy as an Aviation Cadet and was commissioned as an Ensign in April 1944. While attached to ZP-15 in Brunswick, GA, he met Addie Lucille Haygood and they were married on March 25, 1945. After the war he remained on active duty with the Navy, where he worked at various duty stations on the east coast, and in Panama and Iceland. Hugh and Lucille bought his current home and farm in Palmyra, VA in late 1963. He retired from the Navy as a Lt. Commander in 1964. Hugh enjoyed his life and counted many friends. He was a good father and did his best to instill in his children a confidence for their potential. His constant example of thrift, honesty and diligence had a lasting positive influence on each of them. He was an excellent cook and will be remembered for his good bread. While in high school, he received a blue ribbon for his homemade cake entry at the county fair. He enjoyed entertaining friends, sharing his home-cooked meals of “Chicken and Almonds” and “Spare Ribs and Sauerkraut”—to name a few. One of his greatest enjoyments in his younger years was fly- fishing. Later, he and Lucille enjoyed many years of square dancing and its close circle of friends. Hugh was noted for his charity to friends and neighbors. One of his most memorable services was the sponsoring of a family of Vietnamese refugees. The success and contributions of this family were, and continue to be, a source of great satisfaction to him. Hugh was an avid woodworker. He built two fine fishing boats, his lovely home, and was noted for his skill in building small boxes. He enjoyed...

Damian was born in Charlottesville at UVA on Nov 2, 1990 at approximately 2 pm. He came to live with his Grandmother Brenda when he was 6 months old. He graduated from Louisa County High School in 2009. Damian thought he wanted to go to college but could never get his mind with his wants. So after starting his classes at Piedmont, it didn’t last too long. Going to class, at least that is what he told Nanny, turned into riding around for 2 hours. He gave that up after 2 semesters. His employment has included everything from working at UPS, the morning shift when he had to get up at 3 am, and loaded trucks for 4 hours – which I might add only lasted about 6 months – then doing lawn care – working for a junk yard – and doing nothing for several periods of time. He finally said in January that he was going to find a job that he really wanted and would like and was going to work and make something of his life. Klockner Pentaplast in Gordonsville hired him and he was working towards advancement already. Damian loved his Rap music, once in a while I would catch him listening to County music and he would turn it off pretty quickly. Did not want Nanny to know that he liked that. He was a pretty sharp video game player. At one point when he was in one of those “not working periods” he often said he was going to become a professional player and compete! Damian also loved to read – When Harry Potter books came out – I always knew what to buy for him – the next volume. And he loved math- He could solve a math problem or do algebra easier than most of us could learn our ABC’s. Among those Damian has left behind to Cherish his loving memories are his Nanny, Brenda Kiser Malcolm and his 2 sons, David Price and Joseph, his father, Donald Heath Kiser, and sister Tammy Kiser of Lorton, VA. He is also survived by his beautiful little daughter Khalani and her Mother Mackenzie. A visitation will be held Saturday, June 11 at Sheridan Funeral Home at 1pm followed by a funeral service at Sheridan Funeral Home at 2pm.
