From his good friend, Jim Walton:

Stan was frugal with his resources, but.. He should have a picture here shirtless. He was always quietly giving the shirt off of his back to anyone in need. He loved animals especially cats and dogs. I have known him to spend big money on reconstructing a cats smashed leg at a orthopod's (vet bone surgeon) If you got a dog but couldn't afford a doghouse at the time, he would show up and build the pup a doghouse. A gentile giant of a man who was my best friend!


Stanley's updating of his biography:
for better or worse; here is last 40 years...
After graduating from Central High; I attended the University of Memphis. I was a member of Kappa Alpha Order. I received my BBA with a major in marketing, specifically sales.
In 1968 I joined the U.S.Army with a primary M.O.S. as an infantryman. After discharge, I was employed with the U.S. Corps of Engineers. I worked on the Mississippi River with an engineering team doing survey work. It was interesting work, but temporary. Being a veteran has some benefits, as the various services have numerous civilian contractors. Flying U 2 aircraft pays well, but can be dangerous.
I was employed by Crump Lime and Cement Co in 1973 selling building materials. I joined Wittichen Lime and Cement in l980, where I am at present. I call on contractors and architects. Recently, I have been involved with several projects in downtown and midtown Memphis.

I enjoy Memphis history, occasionally target shoot, and bird hunt. I still live in midtown Memphis with my immediate family, four cats and two dogs, all previously homeless.

I have long been interested in a former Centralite, Machinegun Kelly. A friend sent me a photo of his grave in Texas. Kelly should have a nicer marker.
