Some of my fondest memories involve Stan. He ranks as one of a few people I have known with true sincerity and integrity. He was a true friend. God rest his soul.

To all of Stan's family, you have my deepest sympathy. Will always remember him as one of the really smart, yet funny guys in our class. We called him "Peanuts" and yet I don't recall how he acquired that name. In recent years he would come over to Newton and bring a tractor or something to the John Deere place and since I worked right behind it at Heartland Classics , he would always come back and we would visit for a bit. I will always have fond memories. Prayers to you all.

Stanley was such a good friend. We would laugh and talk for hours. He was such a nice, quiet, and thoughtful guy. He will always hold a special place in my heart as my dear, sweet friend from the old Annapolis Grade School and Hutsonville High School (Chemistry class) days. I believe God has some very special plans for him. I plan to only think happy thoughts about him being free once again with God, his family and friends who departed before him. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers at this time.
