  4. I have known Stanley for years! When I was on my work he was walking down to fire department. He would start waving as soon he saw my car. I have missed seeing him.
    Stanley you will be missed by the city of Kenova. RIP

  5. Stanley “Tuck” was an integral part of my my childhood. He would always see my mama and say “Roll on big mama” This would crack us up! We were raised at the fire department and he was always around. We loved him and he will be missed.
