Stanley attended North Syracuse High School and the University of Colorado at Boulder where he completed the Air Force ROTC program with a bachelor’s degree in Botany. During his summers in college, he worked for U.S. Forest Service in Nevada, as a forest fire scout. He met his wife Helen Shaw in South Dakota at Ellsworth Air Force Base, where both were serving in the Air Force. They married in June in the late 1960’s.

A dedicated husband and devoted grandfather, he was a kind-hearted man who enjoyed nature and loved animals - especially dogs and birds. A fan of history, hiking, gardening, jogging and traveling, he also loved country music. He was a longtime member of Spinnaker Point Recreational Center, where he especially enjoyed the indoor jogging track and the people he met there.
