Stanley attended Atco Baptist Church. He was retired from Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company with 36 years of service. Stanley was generous, wise, a man of respect and honor who would give you the shirt off his back to help someone. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend and will be sorely missed. He enjoyed farming and cutting hay. The cattle barn and pastures will never be the same.
He is survived by his wife, Donna Perry of Cartersville; his daughter and son-in-law, Carol and Joe McDaniel; his sons, Lamar and Thomas Perry, of Cartersville; his sisters, Sue Brockman of Centre, Ala., Linda Wilson of Cartersville and Pete Starnes of Cartersville; his brother, Gene Perry of Cartersville; one granddaughter, Alex Cagle and husband, Shannon, of Cartersville; his grandsons, Kyle Denton and wife, Katherine, of Cartersville, and Taylor McDaniel of Cartersville; and his great-grandson and best friend, Kole Thomas Denton, of Cartersville.
