Peacetime Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served in the United States Navy as a Seaman on board the side-wheel steam warship "USS Rhode Island". He was awarded the CMOH for his bravery of the coast of Haiti on January 15, 1866. His citation reads "While coaling ship in the harbor of Cape Haiten, one of the crew of the Rhode Island fell overboard, and, after catching a rope, had been forced by exhaustion, to relinquish his hold. Although the sea was running high at the time, Stacy, at the peril of his life, jumped overboard, secured the rope around his shipmate, and thus saved him from drowning".
