Roland Stanley, Sr. Obituary

He was born in 1933 to Woodrow and Annie Laura Stanley of Tuscumbia, AL. He was a beloved dad and “granddaddy” to his family and loved by many other family and friends. He spent his life taking care of his family and serving others. He was always ready and willing with a smile to enjoy whatever project was put before him.  He loved being outside and working in his yard and garden. We called him our “energizer bunny” because he was always busy tinkering or working on something.
