Stanley was trained in Coast Artillery at Camp Callan, CA, and embarked to active service on March 10, 1944. He served in the Southwest Pacific Theatre and was on-board a ship that was sunk by a Japanese torpedo off the coast of Leyte on December 6, 1944. He returned to the United States as a Corporal on January 7, 1946. He was awarded the Good Conduct Medal after serving for a total of 28 months. In 1947, Stanley went to work as a brakeman for the Chicago Northwestern Railroad. He continued his career on the railroad until an injury prompted his retirement in 1977. On July 5, 1978, Stanley married Phyllis Atkinson in Las Vegas. He enjoyed woodworking, fishing, camping, trains, and rides in the country.
