Stancil W. Wilson

He was the oldest living male member of First Baptist Church in Hamlet where he served as a Deacon and Trustee. He also was a member of the Masonic Lodge in Rockingham, where he was recognized as serving for over 60 years.

He and his wife Lib were owners and operators of Wilson’s Cake Shop. During his years in the Cake Shop, and until he was called home, Stan never met a stranger. He always had a smile on his face, a joke to tell, or he was thinking of dancing with his beloved wife. His life was full of love and joy and he continually brought out the best in others. He demonstrated this best in the way he loved his family and the impact that he left on their lives.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years Elizabeth Wilson, sisters Susie Bowling, Sarah Chappell, Lillian Carpenter and brothers Lonnie Wilson and Robert Wilson.

Surviving include a son, Wayne Wilson and wife Sandy of Winston-Salem; a daughter, Judy Walker and husband Lowry of Rockingham; grandchildren, Courtnae Blount and husband Davis, Holt Walker and wife Suzy and Stancil (Chip) Wilson and wife Christen; great grandchildren, Tyler Kantor, Davis Blount, Walker Blount, Blake Walker and Lauren Walker.

Funeral services will be conducted Monday, October 6, 2014 at 2:30 the First Baptist Church in Hamlet with Rev. Randy Bishop officiating. Entombment will follow at Richmond County Memorial Park Mausoleum.

The family will receive friends Monday from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. prior to the service at the church and at other times at the home of his daughter at 105 Elizabeth St. Rockingham.

Memorials may be made to the First Baptist Church, 208 Charlotte St. Hamlet, NC 28345. If Stan had an impact on your life, you can honor his memory by passing on his love and spirit: worry less, laugh more, smile all the time, help others, love God and your family.
