|Let the memory of Stanley be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Stanley Williams.
Stanley Eugene Williams was born in Alliance, Nebraska on June 1, 1933. He graduated from Grants Pass High School and continued on to receive a degree from the University of Oregon.
Stan enjoyed life until at the young age of 79 he passed away in his home in Yuma, AZ on January 6, 2013.
Stan is survived by the love of his life, Judy, who he shared greater than 30 years of love. They were married just short of 30 years starting on January 15th 1983. Stan is also survived by his daughters Denise, Diana, and Teresa, and his sons Darryl and Douglas.
Stan last worked as a GED Examiner for the Arizona Western College. Stan worked for 6 years passionately encouraging students, from all walks of life, to further their education after they passed their GED. Stan enjoyed reading books, playing cribbage, sudoko, and billiards. He loved mathematics, and was an avid woodworker who created many beautiful works of art for his family and friends. Stan was rarely seen without a smile on his face.
The family wishes to thank friends and family for your loving support and a special thanks to neighbors Len and Dee Lahonda for their devoted care over the last several months.

"I think about Stan often and miss his words. He always made me think outside the box. I wonder what he would say about our America today. I don't miss the job but I sure do miss the Math Man! Keep an eye out for us down here."
"This is the 4th year anniversary of my wonderful husbands death. I miss him more today than ever. Stan was the most wonderful human being I ever knew. He was loving, kind, considerate and never had a bad word to say about anyone. He was always smiling and I consider myself so lucky to have had the honor of being his wife for the years that I did. Rest in peace my love."
"I miss Stan and his great smile, was a great neighbor here in Yuma, I went to high school with him also in Oregon, lived here for 4 years before realizing he lived two doors up from us. Just was a wonderful person & is greatly missed. Judy and I have become good friends so still feel like he is still with us."
"Thoughts prayers and love to Judy and all of Stan's friends and family. You are certainly missed!!"
"Stan met my 1st Grandson 8 yrs ago. We decided then that he will love MATH. He really loves it. I will remind him that he met a really man that was so smart on math. I will also remind him that he had lots of lesson for all of us to learn. I do miss him so much.
ELEANOR SAYLES & FAMILY"
"Stan was such a kind, good sweet man. I went to high school with him, I didn't know him, but, knew who he was. Was neighbors for 4 yrs here in Yuma before realizing we were school mates, then became friends, always enjoyed visiting with him and Judy, always made you feel so welcome, like family. Loved his smile & gentle nature. The last time I heard from him thru an email, told me he had brain surgery, said I would pray for him, he said, 'prayers accepted'. Bless his heart, I truly miss him, seeing him drive by and waving. He was a very special man & feel it was an honor to know him."
"Judy, my heart is absolutely broken for you and your family. I didn't know Stan, but I know how much you loved him and that he brought a lot of joy and happiness to your heart and life. In seeing these pictures and reading about him, I can tell that he was a tremendous and wonderful person. He is with you Judy - he always will be. And he will always love you. Lots of love to you."

"We didnt know Stan very well, but we did meet him at Darryls house from time to time, in the past 30 years we've know Darryl. I did know that he wasnt just a step father, he was most likely more than that, and alot of his greatness and charm did rub off onto Darryl and made him the man he is today. I consider my stepfather,my father, and sure Darryl did too. Love & Prayers, P&J"
"Ted and I knew Stan as a great fun loving man. He was always smiling or laughing (as Linda C. said) and funny too. We will miss him at your get togethers. Our best to the family. I know he will be around in spirit and guidance. Peace and love."
"There was never a time when I saw Stan that he wasn't smiling or laughing. His love for his family and friends was with him everywhere he went. I always enjoyed our conversations during his visits to San Diego. The special celebrations will not be the same without you Stan. May you rest in peace, my friend. xoxo"
