Stanley was born on October 14, 1949 in Jacksonville, Florida to William Ralph and Esther Louise Ponder Childs. He worked for Bell South in Montgomery for 27 years before retiring. Throughout his life, Stanley enjoyed working on projects around the house, whether they included wood-working, mechanical repairs, or building structures in their house. His family knew him as a kind-hearted and jolly person. A debilitating stroke made his last few years difficult for the Stanley we knew and loved.
