Stanley enjoyed old time country and bluegrass music. He played electric bass guitar and was in a band with his brothers in the 1960s. He was a jack-of-all-trades having worked on an international pipeline in Venezuela, owned his own auto mechanics garage and even delivered the U.S. mail.

He married Bonnie Brecht on Jan. 3, 1955, in Mankato, Minn. Together, they lived in Minnesota, Idaho and Benton County, Iowa, before settling in Toddville, where they spent most of their married life raising four daughters. They moved to Kiln in 1997.
