John Roy Stanley passed away Sept. 4, 2019 at the age of 81.

John was born Feb. 17, 1938 in Dublin, Texas to Roy and Ada Mae Stanley. He grew up in Spur, Texas, moving to Fort Worth after high school. John married the love of his life, Mary, in 1960 and started a family while working at Bell Helicopter for more than 30 years. In retirement he and Mary were able to fulfill their lifelong dreams of traveling. Family was always a priority for John. He was very active in the church and other charities and voluntary associations. He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary, by only a few days.

John is survived by two sons and daughters-in-law, Mike and Deby Stanley and David and Cindy Stanley. John had seven grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, Oct. 19, at First Baptist Church in Hurst, with a gathering after the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to a charity in their name.
