Our prayers are with Stan's family. We wish to express our deepest sympathy for your loss. We both worked with Stan at Bobby Fryar Trucking. We are glad to have known him. He truly had a kind heart and a helping hand extended to anyone in need.
I remember he used to greet me with a gruff "Mornin'". The first time, I said, "Good Morning". He laughed and said "I didn't say it was good. Just morning." After that we both greeted each other with gruff "Mornin' ". To this day every single time I greet someone I think of Stan when I say "Mornin' ". Thanks to Stan I know the difference. Now thankfully, all his mornings are good.

I am thankful that the Lord blesses us with such wonderful people that become threads in the fabric of our beings.

I AM SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT STANLEY. HE WAS A GREAT GUY. I ATTENED SCHOOL WITH STAN AND HE WAS ALWAYS SO MUCH FUN TO BE AROUND. HE WAS A DEAR SWEET GUY THAT WOULD HELP ANYONE. AFTER WE GOT OUT OF SCHOOL I HAD A FLAT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE DAM. I HAD A MAN STOP AND HE TRIED TO GET ME IN HIS CAR AND WOULD NOT TAKE NO FOR A ANSWER. WELL FINALLY STAN SEEN ME SITTING ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AND HE STOPPED TO HELP ME. HE TOLD THE MAN TO GO ON BECAUSE HE WAS MY BIG BROTHER AND HE WAS GOING TO HELP ME. STAN STAYED THERE WITH ME TILL MY HUSBAND ARRIVED BECAUSE I WAS SO SCARED. WHAT A GREAT FRIEND. HE WILL BE SADLY MISSED. LIKE KENT SAD, HE HAD SUCH A BIG HEART. MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO ALL OF STAN'S FAMILY.

I did not know Stanley as well as my brother did was but I always knew he was a very good person. Everyone always had such great things to say about him and I know how much he loved his family. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his family and friends at this very sad time.

Didn't know Stanley as an adult but if he was anything like his parents he was a very special person. So sorry to hear this and will be in prayer for Wanda and all the family.
