Stanley was trained in Coast Artillery at Camp Callan, CA, and embarked to active service on March 10, 1944.

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.
