  1. I know this is a long time from Stan’s death for me to respond, but have not had the opportunity to do so in the past. However, Stan and I were very close buddies when we were young. He and I are first cousins, and we were the closest of buddies, friends and cousins. I send, after all these years, my deepest love and compassion to all those who truly loved Stan. I have a genealogy record of all of our family and I certainly wanted to include Stan’s information in it. I am now 88 yrs old and I still have wonderful memories of our young lives together. I loved Him, His Sisters, His Mom and Dad and wish all of his remaining family God’s best. James E. Wallis

  2. Peggy and Ken; We were so sorry to hear about Stan. We really admired him as a father and a man. Trevor and Mindy send their regards also. We pray that God will watch over you both,and give you the strength you need. In christian love Cal,Jan,Mindy, and Trevor (Garcia) Beck

  3. Uncle Stan will always be remembered by me and my family as a gentle, loving, and cheerful companion. He loved his whole family, was especially proud of his son Ken (my cousin) and his young family and always spoke of them with genuine love and affection, and treated everyone he knew with good will and a light heart. I cannot recall an unkind word from him to or about anyone, and I will always remember his ready smile and easy laughter. We will all miss him. – Scott, Cheree, Adriana and Neil Paul Hammond

  4. Peggy, Gilberdean and all of the family, please know that we are thinking of you at this sad time. We are remembering all of the wonderful times that we spent together.

With love, Don and Betty Honeycutt

  5. Dear Peggy & Family,
    I was so sorry to hear about the loss of Stan. I have fond memories of him from Wallis family reunions, and I was sorry you were unable to make the last one in Grand Junction a couple of years ago. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. Love, Dee & Family

  6. Dear Peggy, Ken, Susan, and Rache,
    Please know how sorry we are that
    you all had to go through all the
    trials and tribulations of Stan’s
    sickness and death.

    If we can do anything now or in the future please call on us.
    With lots of love
    Terry & Barbara Lee

  8. To my Uncle Stan,
    You have, and will always, hold a special place in my heart. Thanks for all of the wonderful memories. Love, Becky (Becky Boo)

  9. Peggy and family, I am saddened to learn of Stan’s death. I have many wonderful memories of Stan during the 25+ years we worked together. He got my late wife Carol her first job as a legal secretary, a vocation that she continued in until her death. Stan, Ray Garcia and I had our spirited little competitions over our favorite baseball teams, and Stan always found a way to have the last word for his beloved Cardinals. He was a good friend and a fine man. Blessings to you all. — Tom Tucker

  10. Mrs. Wallis, Ken and family, My heartfelt condolences for our loss. Stan remains an important fatherly figure and mentor in my life. His strong work ethic, family devotion, and wise counsel were formative influences throughout our childhood and his mentorship a part of my daily life as I raise my kids. Two oreos will remain at the bottom of my cookie jar for you.
