IN 1964 he moved from Osyka to Picayune with his mother and brother where he united with St. Matthew Baptist Church under the leadership of the Rev. Jessie James, where he attended Sunday School, was a member of the choir and Cub Scouts. Tito loved his Goodyear Community.

Stallings; brother Rufus (Elizabeth) Stallings; nieces, Roshundra Stallings Goss, and Rachel Stallings, all of Picayune; uncle, Marshall (Viola) Stallings of Osyka, and Aunt, Alberta Stallings of Picayune; one great niece, two great-nephews; special friend, Allison Bender Bowling; and a host of other relatives and friends.
