Stanley received a degree in Laboratory Technology, worked at Wake Forest Hospital, Wake Med, and retired from Duke / Wake Forest Family Physicians.

Stanley dedicated almost 50 years of his life to Wake Forest Fire Department as a volunteer, Assistant Chief and later as President of the Board of Directors.  It was only due to his declining health that he had to retire from the Fire Department.

He enjoyed working in the yard, growing many varieties of flowers and spending time with family.
