2 Condolences for Goodwyn Worton Stanley, Jr.

  • Stephanie and I are obviously sorry to hear about the loss of Goodie. Our prayers and thoughts are with Shawn, Dawn and family.

    I have good memories of him while I was growing up in Ohio. He was always there for conversation and stories with his soft spoken words.

    Rest In Peace!

  • “Goodie” was our client at Financial House. He would bring Vicki in with him to his appointments and he was so happy to have her dance, etc. for us and give us her pictures. Goodie would always end our conversations with “thank you, I appreciate you guys very much”. I was very saddened to hear of Goodie’s passing. He will be missed. We send his family our deepest condolences.
