A Short Look Into Stacy Van Dyke’s Parents Dick & Margie’s Relationship

Stacy’s parents Dick and Margie first met in their teenage years while her mother was still in high school. During this time, her father was trying to break into Hollywood with his comedy and acting skills.

Moreover, Stacy Van Dyke’s mother Margie Willett was dating another guy while she fell in love with her then-future husband. The actor even talked about Margie and her then-boyfriend’s love story in one of his books titled My Lucky Life in and Out of Show Business.
