As an new and nervous OD driver in 2005, I met Stan on my 1st run to Greensboro. His patient and light-hearted instruction got me through it. Always hoped Stan was on duty when ever I went there and disappointed when he was not. Great Guy, will miss him in this life - looking forward to seeing him in the next.

We just want to express to Kevin and his family how much we all loved Stan. He made us smile, laugh and enjoy his friendship at all the golf outings! He was one of the most kind men with a gentle spirit, not to mention also a great golfer. Hank and A.T. will truly miss him at the golf outings as will I. But I want to say to Kevin, you are much like your Dad and so we look forward to being with you again and fondly remember "Stan the Man" together today and always! May our God above give you strength and peace as you move through the days ahead. We are lifting your family up in our prayers!
We love you,
Hank & Patti, A.T. and Chelsea Cashwell

Stan was a good friend and co-worker, he kept me laughing at his crazy women's reading glasses. Everytime that I look at my reading glasses I will remember Stan. Also when I look at the Carolina and Duke games I will remember you are still pulling for Carolina and I will be pulling for Duke. Will miss you bunches Stan!!! Thought and Prayers go out to the family.
