Just before the holidays I heard from Mr. Stancill's daughter, Maxine Stancill Edwards. At the time her father was in ill health. After responding to her, it wasn't until today that I heard back from her and she shared her news. If anyone would like to send condolences you can follow the information on the obituary link, or I can hook you up with Maxine if you contact me directly. There are a couple of photos of him as a young man in the Navy that will be posted to the Memories of Strong page. Another shipmate lost, but he lives on in the hearts of his family and here on the web site. As long as we talk about them, as long as we remember them, they are never really gone. That's the way I like to think about it anyway.
Smooth sailing, Mr. Stancill. Calm seas and clear skies to you.
