    Frank was a kind and godly servant to God and his congregations. His life exemplified grace and Christlikeness. He will be greatly missed, but many others will meet him one day in heaven because he shared his love of the Lord wherever he went. My prayers are with his delightful wife, Doris, and their entire family. Earth was a grander place because of Frank!

  • David and Caroline Weldon says:

    We are deeply saddened by the loss of our pastor, mentor and friend. We do not know the plans and purposes that God has for him, but know that they are great plans and significant for the kingdom on the heavenly side. “There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another.” (I Corinthians 15:50). May God comfort the family and friends who remain. We didn’t expect this loss at this time, but with God’s strength we accept it. His Christian witness and the lessons taught will remain an inspiration to us for the rest of our lives!

  • Enid Mercado says:

    My sincere condolences to your whole family. God gave us the opportunity to meet him and it was an honor but his memories are with all of us. Rest in peace.

  • John and Geraldine Petrulis says:

    Heaven gained a very special person, a teacher, a prayer warrior, a friend, a husband, a father, a grandfather. He was never too busy to listen to your woes, to pray with you, for you or too help in your time of need. I know, because I was one of these people, he was never to busy to let me cry, with him, through my losses, to pray for strength and to see me through my trails.
    We are praying for strength and comfort for the family, to get through this time. We send our condolences to you and your family.

  • Renei Scott Scarano says:

    Pastor Stanley was a wonderful man with a very kind smile. I enjoyed him as my Pastor for many years. He married me & my husband in my parents’ living room. He was always very supportive and ready to listen in times of trouble. The Stanley family will always have a big place in my heart. Praying the amazing comfort & peace that our Lord gives. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I’m sure Pastor Stanley will hear God say, “Well done thou good & faithful servant.

  • Lisa Kincaid says:

    I know that everyone he came in contact with had to be blessed because you could just feel the presence of the Lord on him. I learned so much from him and I am sure will continue to learn because we still have his taped church messages and listen to them. My love goes out to the family and know that if you ever need anything I will be there for you.

    Love you!
