    Gene was first cousin to my father James Noah Hinson, M.D. and his siblings William Crowell “June” Hinson, Richard “Chub” Hinson, Betty Lou Hinson. Heath, Rachel Evelyn Hinson Hill and Margaret Ann Hinson Gordon. Gene’s father Ed was a brother to my paternal grandmother Virgie Irene Eagle Hinson. Ed’s wife was my grand Aunt Vi. She is the one who gave my grandmother some bannies when I was around 5 or 6 years old. It seems everyone is gone and I am trying to send a letter to his nieces, but need an address. My sympathies.

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.
