He enjoyed playing golf with his wife, Bonnie, son, Larry, and others. Stanley made two hole-in-ones at Pond View and Pine View Golf Courses. He was a lifetime member of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles and former member of the Moose Lodge.

Stanley is survived by his wife, Bonnie; son, Larry Smith, Monticello; daughter, Sandy Bailey, Greenfield; grandchildren, Joe Smith, Monticello, Kimberly Smith, Monticello, Michael Bailey, Greenfield, and Ashley Bailey, Indianapolis; great-grandchildren, Hunter, Jaden, Alex and Tory Smith, and Gracey Bailey; brothers, Fred Smith and Jack Smith, Monticello; sister, Zonia Woods, Sun City, Ariz.; sisters-in-law, Vivian Smith and Betty Leep, Kokomo; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and cousins.

He is preceded in death by his parents; sister, Betty Chism; brothers, Frank, Edward and Paul Smith; infant sister, Dorothy Smith; infant brother, Richard Smith; and daughter-in-law, Ruth Smith.
