I fought a good fight; I finished my course. I have kept the faith.

After serving several years in the army, Stanley received an honorable discharge and returned to New York City.
Stanley retired from the NYC Metro Transit Authority after 24 years of work as a station clerk in January of 1996. As a dedicated family man Stanley took pride in spending time with family and friends in his retirement years. He was a lover of music, dancing, chatting with others, and playing a variety of video games. He enjoyed every moment spent with loved ones. He greeted all with a kind spirit and big smile. Stanley truly wore his heart on his sleeve.
