The journey for Stanley Eugene Mayhue began February 4, 1961. He was the son of Floyd and Virginia Mayhue. Accepting the Lord as his personal savior, “Stan” as he was affectionately known, received his Ministerial license and began to witness to his family, friends and anyone who wanted to hear the word. Stan fell in love with and married Eileen Gregory and two children were born to this union. He worked at Sperry Vickers and was also self-employed in various side ventures until his health began to fail. His strong faith in the Lord and his love for his family is what saw him through.
On May 20, 2010, his journey ended.
The family preceding him home were his parents, two brothers, Pentoke Mayhue and Roy Lee Warrior and one sister, Virginia Fletcher.
