Just learned about Stanleys passing while hearing about this years Black Walnut Festival. We had so much fun playing music with Stanley at this festival - the band even rode in a truck for the parade! From 1984 to 1999, he played harmonica in our band for the square dances held monthly in the Shriver Center at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. He was also our oil man - we are grateful to have known Stanley and his family. Warren and Judy Waldron

Susie and family, What a BLESSING to have known you and your dad. It gave our family great peace knowing that we could lay down at night knowing Stanley would give us a report on moms activities. His Godly influence uplifted our visits. We always enjoyed his little tunes in his pocket. May God comfort you at this time and give you many sweet memories to come.

During our last few years of performing Blue Grass and Southern Gospel music at WCM we could always count on Stanley to join in with his harmonicas. Our group was referred as "The Smith Family Band", by many.

I believe Stanley played music with my father Paul Boyd, I am sure they are lighting up the heavens with music today. Sorry for your families loss. D. Harper

He will be so missed by all at WCM and beyond. I so enjoyed talking with him when I would visit my Dad and Mom there. His harmonica music was so beautiful, happy and toe-tapping and uplifting to all who heard him play. He also played when my Grandpa James Hackworth called square dances in the area. Play on, Stanley, in the heavenly choir praising Jesus
