Born April 17, 1957 in Anson County, Stanley was the third of four boys born to William Shelton "Bill" Marsh and Sarah Upchurch Marsh. He graduated Bowman High School in 1976. While in high school, Stanley started working for the Anson Shirt Company. In the 1980s he went to work for Corbin Mfg., a garment manufacturing company in Huntingdon, WV and in the 90s, he worked for the Carhardt Company out of Glasgow, KY, a manufacturer of work clothes. In the 2000s, Stanley returned to the Anson Shirt Company and following his retirement there, was fond of saying that he was lucky and blessed to have ended his career at the same place he started.
Survivors include his son, Justin Marsh of Kenova, WV; his daughter, Jenny March Workman of Kenova, WV; four grandchildren, Abigail Marsh, Millie Workman, Macie Workman, Macie Workman and Maggie Workman.
Stanleys family also includes three brothers, Sam Marsh (Whitney), Jeff Marsh, and Bradley Marsh; many special nephews and nieces and his very special extended McGlone-Lyons families in Kenova. In addition to his parents, a son, Jason McGlone preceded him in death.
The family would like to offer special thanks and praise to Dr. Gregory Brouse & his team of nurses, and also the wonderful folks at Union County Hospice. In addition, they would like to give a shout out to Stanleys friends for their love and support throughout his most difficult times.
The family suggests memorials be made to the Anson County Arts Council and earmarked for the Ansonia Theater where Stanley enjoyed helping assemble many of the theater stage production sets. The address is Anson County Arts Council, Attn: Ansonia Theater, 110 S. Rutherford Street, Wadesboro, NC 28170.
