Stanley has proudly been a lifelong resident of Limestone County and has seen it grow from a humble cotton growing community into a pillar of technology, aerospace, and industry. Stanley learned the principles of business and management by working on the family farm; where they raised cotton, soybeans, and corn. During the Vietnam era, he served with the National Guard 1343rd Engineering Battalion from 1966-1972, and held the rank of Staff Sergeant by the end of his service. He has been married to his wife, Wanda, since 1969 and they have a son, Stan, daughter-in-law, Shaviny, and two granddaughters, Madelyn and Molly.

Since leaving office in 2002, Stanley stayed active in the Association of County Commissions of Alabama (ACCA) and had the opportunity of working in the private sector consulting on various projects with local governments and private businesses.
Stanley attended the Alabama County Government Institute (ACGI) through the Auburn University Center for Governmental Service, being one of the first to graduate from the institute. The ACGI works with the county officials to explore ways for counties to enhance their revenue, economic development, and growth to effectively build for the future with budgeting, planning and effective project management. Some of Stanley's most important accomplishments while previously serving on the Limestone County Commission were the building of the Limestone County Annex, the development of the current Solid Waste Plan and the construction of the Limestone County Sherriff's Department and Detention Center.
