We ask on behalf of the family that you keep your comments uplifting and appropriate to help all who come here to find comfort and healing.
John was born March 23, 1950 in Pocatello, Idaho to John and Kathryne Stanley. In John’s later years he settled in Lawrence, Kansas to attend Haskell Indian University and later to live in Baldwin with his family. John was a man of many talents and his love and great knowledge of working with wood was shown as he loved to share this knowledge with many. With his wealth of knowledge as you spoke to him about a project you could see him designing in his head. He loved to help anyone he could to reach the end project.
John celebrated 23 years of recovery in January. He dedicated his years of recovery to service work, sponsorship and supporting his home group. His passion to help those who suffer from addiction to live a life of recovery was seen by many. To share the words from a man he loved and was his sponsor, your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.
John was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Judy Stanley.
Survivors include wife Sherree and his mother in law Delores Shaw who he loved very much. Children Sarah Haugh (Spouse Mark) of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Alven Haulmark, Katie Renne (Haulmark) of Phoenix, Arizona; his 5 beautiful granddaughters, Faith and Phoebe Haugh of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Ashtin Renne of Omaha, Nebraska, Caitlyn Renne of Fairborn, Ohio and Megan Renne of Osan, South Korea and many many friends.
A celebration of John’s life will be held Saturday March 23, 2019 at 11:00 am. Services will be held at the New Life Assembly of God Church, 118 5th Street in Baldwin City, KS.
The family is asking for any donations to be made to the DCCCA Recovery Fund to honor John’s memory of recovery and service: Please note John Stanley in donation. Beginning a life in recovery often means addressing tangible barriers that were products of chronic substance abuse. The work associated with entering life in recovery is difficult and creating a stable foundation outside of treatment can seem impossible when late utility payments, evictions, and lack of transportation are immediate problems to be addressed with limited financial resources available. Your donation to the Recovery Today Fund will help clients in DCCCA treatment programs overcome barriers like these, supporting their transition into a stable, healthy life in recovery.
