Stan had love for working with farm machinery handed down to him from his grandfather McClain that he forged into a career after high school as a tractor mechanic working at several Ford and John Deere tractor dealerships throughout his life. Stan also loved fine tools so much that his workshop would rival any store tool section. He also worked with Tropical Liqueurs in Columbia for many years and enjoyed birding trips with his wife Mary.
Stan will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Mary Dodds McCarthy; his sister, Linda Lawman (Eric); his father David McCarthy (Sherry); his stepchildren Alan Dodds and Rebecca LeCain, their children, and his nieces, nephews and their children.
Services will be held on Sunday, December 10, 2023 at Memorial Funeral Home in Columbia, with visitation beginning at 1:00 PM and a time for sharing memories at 2:00 PM. Please come prepared to tell all your favorite Stan stories; everyone is encouraged to share. In his memory, donations may be made to the Columbia Parkinson’s Support Group, 1311 Vintage Drive, Columbia, Missouri 65203.
