    Hugh Hinson was an amazing gentleman. Whenever you saw him, you had a smile waiting for you. Hugh loved his family and had so many wonderful friends, including my dad, Johnny Burleson. I can only imagine the wonderful craftsmanship that Hugh and Dad are working on in Heaven. Hugh will be missed.

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.
