    A man with a big heart. You are going to be missed by a lot of people. You mean a lot to a lot of people. I miss our talks and the fishing under the WW Bridge. Lots of good times. I thank you for teaching Al all about being an excellent electrician. You made life fun. You’re thought about a lot. RIP Steve!!!

    You are missed and thought of often. I Trust that you are in Heaven with our Savior. I laugh as I think if the Sunday we were in church and the preacher gave the altar call and while you didn’t go up, he asked if anyone didn’t know for sure that they were saved raise their hand. You did raise your hand but never expected the preacher to come to you which he did and he spent about 20 minutes praying with you. I’m so glad he did but I can remember you having a fit after church and we laughed because you said you wouldn’t have ever raised your hand if you thought he was coming to you. It was funny remembering how you reacted but at the same time now grateful that you made sure. Love and miss you always

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.
