    I’m sad to hear of Lee’s pasting and my sympathy to his family and friends. The funniest guy I ever had the pleasure to work with.at Steel Tech.

    Lee was long time friend of our family for years.
    His smile and wonderful sense of humor will surely be missed by all who knew him. We love you buddy

    Judy and family, I am so very sorry about your son. I don’t remember him, but, I’ll always remember you and the good times we had when we worked together.I have thought about you often and wondered how you were doing and where you lived now. I can’t say I know how you feel because I’ve never lost a child,but I know how it feels to lose a grandchild. I lost a granddaughter 3 years ago September 27. She was 33years old.I know it has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever lived through .If it had not been for my faith and trust in God I wouldn’t be here today. Please know that I will be praying for you during this sad time, that God will give you the peace and comfort that only He can give. I love you, and would love to talk to you sometime. God bless you and your family.

    We are so saddened by Lee’s passing. It was a shock when one of my customers at the bank told me this morning. Our thoughts and prayers from the Pearl Hatley family go out to all of Lee’s family.

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.
