   Chester Jefferson Stafford - In Memory of a Special Person The Republican Party in Southwest Virgini today is mourning the loss of one of its leaders, Del. C. Jefferson Stafford, of Giles County, who died early this morning at his home after a bout with Pancreatic cancer. He was 51 years old. Stafford represented Pulaski County in the General Assembly for half of his almost 20 years of service. He was the second ranking Republican in terms of seniority in the House of Delegates. Known for his youthful appearance and conservative philosophy of government, in 1984 Stafford ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. House of Representatives seat in the Ninth Congressional District against incumbent Congressman Rick Boucher. As was noted by former Pulaski County GOP Chairman Rod Layman, Stafford carried Pulaski County by a large margin in that congressional race. "He was well known and well liked here. Even after he was gerry-mandered out of the district he kept in close contact." The Southwest Times Pulaski County's Hometown Newspaper Since 1906 July 24, 1990
Jeanette, Robert, Betty, Bryce
   My thanks to Robert, Betty, Jeanette, Bryce, and Andy for the wonderful hospitality extended to me today. We spent the day talking about the past, present, and future. We shared stories, pictures, and each other to learn more about our families and ourselves. One point that can not be understated was the meal that we shared. Betty made a stew that was made in the old fashion way. I ate so much that I nearly cracked a rib. I can't think of many days that can top those that are spent with family. Thank you for sharing it with me. Larry Allen Stafford
