    We have so many wonderful memories of riding with Joe (and Patty and Samantha!) all over Uwharrie and in Tennessee! He was an awesome horseman and friend. I lived how he always brought “Baby Girl” out with him when he drove around visiting. His love for his family, friends and animals was special. He was a “tough ole’ bird who fought a good fight and didn’t give up easily. Love and hugs to the family. God bless you and give you peace.

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.
