    Jack Faulkner and I attended the East Albemarle School together for eight years. He was an avid football player and tried to organize games during many recesses. Now I’m talking about tackle, not tag or flag! After East Albemarle we attended and graduated from Albemarle High School in 1956. After graduation I went off to college and then came out to Las Vegas so I lost contact with Jack for 60 years. In 2016 before our 60th anniversary graduation, I called him at his home in Albemarle. He told me he was going to try to attend the reunion. He came to the Friday night get together at the Albemarle Inn and then the dinner at Hamanco’s. My wife Ming got some photos of him mixing with some of his classmates and one can see him on the DVD of our 60th reunion. I’ve been terrible over the years in keeping in contact with my classmates and the wonderful people there in Stanly County but Jack Faulkner has always had a small place in my heart. And always will. We’ve lost a special one.

Stanly overwhelmingly met or exceeded our family’s expectations. Family and friends both expressed how thoughtful, caring and professional they were. We’re glad you’re in Locust!


We never felt hurried or rushed in any way even though they had other funerals that day.  Everyone at Stanly Funeral Home made us feel like we were family and did everything they could for us in this most trying time in our lives.


Everyone went out of their way to make sure that every detail was good with me.  Their kindness, patience and love they show is superior.  Stephen Aldridge and his ENTIRE staff are the best.


The whole staff was wonderful but Stephen Aldridge was excellent, even sending us a note one month later.
