Stanley Arthur Crisher
May 19, 1947 – February 6, 2020
Stanley Crisher died peacefully in his sleep on February 6, 2020. Born in 1947 in Buckeye, he was a proud native Arizonan. After graduating from Glendale High School he signed up for the Marine Corps Reserves during the Vietnam War. He met and married his beautiful bride, Carolyn, in 1970. In 1971 Stanley joined the Carpenters' Union, and enjoyed working all over the state. He eventually taught in the Carpenters Apprenticeship program and became a Union Business Agent for the union local. Next to his beloved Union, Stanley's passion was being a part of the Glendale Desert Riders. He has been a continuous member since he was a teenager. The many rides, camp-outs and parades were the highlight of his life, and through them he made many of his closest, lifelong friendships. When he wasn't building something or riding horses, he pursued a wide range of interests from sky diving, white water rafting, deep sea fishing, and hunting (just ask him about his award winning mountain lion!). He also loved driving his lawn mower, irrigating, and tinkering with leather in his "spare" time. He had a soft spot for animals, and many of them found a home with him by just showing up on his doorstep. He was a great husband, father, grandfather, friend, carpenter, and cowboy. Stanley is survived by his wife Carolyn and daughters Jennifer and Allison (Ken), son Aaron, and grandsons Keith and Sam. Final arrangements by Advantage Crystal Rose Funeral Home. Goodbye until we meet again my love.
