Leonard “Red” Stanley of Lucknow, died at Pinecrest Manor Nursing Home, Aug. 18, 2023, at the age of 79. Beloved husband of Shirley. Missed by his children, Connie and Tony, Cathy and Glen, and Terry; as well as his grandchildren, Kayla and Evan, Ryan, Brandon and Ashley, Haydn, Logan, Haley and Lian; and his great-grandchildren, Quinn and Hayes. Predeceased by their daughter, Cindy. Red was born in Kincardine, son of the late Ezra and Lulu Stanley. He was one of seven children raised in Kinlough on a farm. He was full of life and lived each and every day to the fullest. Red and Shirley were young sweethearts, who spent more than 60 years together. He was extremely proud of his children and grandchildren and never missed watching their games or an opportunity to take them hunting, fishing or on the road. He was a friend to many, who can vouch he was a law unto himself - the man, the myth, the legend! A memorial service was held at the Lucknow Community Christian Reformed Church, Monday, Aug. 21, 2023, at 2 p.m. Interment, Durham Road Baptist Cemetery. Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Lucknow Community Christian Reformed Church, would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy; arrangements entrusted to the MacKenzie and McCreath Funeral Home, Lucknow;
