Stanley Ray drove a truck for many years until he retired.  He had a zest for life and his daughters would say “he never grew up!” He was so proud of his Santa Claus beard he grew.  Everyone that knew him, loved him.  He lived life to the fullest and was always happy to see anyone.  Stanley Ray had the biggest heart and loved his horses and Harleys.  Deer hunting was his favorite pastime.  He will be deeply missed by all.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Alberta Dortlon; and granddaughter, Lillie Hartford.
