I want to express my deepest sympathy to Stan King's family over his death. Stan made a unique and lasting contribution to Clovis as well as FRESNO county. As a member of the Clovis City Council and the city's Mayor, Stan always made decisions based on what he be in the City's best and long. term interests,

In both the public and private aspects of his life Stan left us all an example of a life well lived.

There are many other words of praise condolence that will be said to celebrate Stan's life. Let me just say that I want to join in these sentiments.
