    Mr. Stallings was born on March 18, 1924 in Pasadena, MD to the late Oliver and Nellie Stallings. He graduated from Glen Burnie High School in 1942. Immediately after graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corp and fought in the Philippines during World War II. His squadron flew Douglas A-20 airplanes and was known as the Grim Reapers. After being honorably discharged from the Army in 1946, Doc returned to Pasadena and began working for the Department of Natural Resources. After retiring from DNR in 1979, he went to work at NSA and retired from there in 1986.

He was also a dedicated lifelong member of Magothy United Methodist Church where he served on numerous committees. In his spare time, he enjoyed volunteering in the community, carving ducks, and taking winter vacations in Florida with his beloved Jean.
