Joseph Stanley

July 10, 1933 — April 14, 2021

Joseph Webster Stanley of Cambridge, Maryland was called to rest on April 14, 2021. Joe as he was fondly called, was born on July 10, 1933 to the late Minnie Stanley Dennis of Cambridge, Maryland.

Joe received his formal education in the Dorchester County School System, and he was a proud graduate of F.D. St. Clair High School, Cambridge, Maryland, class of 1951.

After being honorably discharged from the United States Army, Joe was employed by Granville Hooper Fuel Company.  In later years, he was employed by Cambridge Wire Cloth Company until his retirement.  During the same years, Joe opened and operated Stanley’s Cleaning Service.

Joe’s hobbies were gardening, watching western TV shows and traveling.

Joe was a loving and caring father, grandfather and great-grandfather.  During the family’s annual Father’s Day gathering at Olde Mill Restaurant in Delmar, Delaware, he would ask about everyone and encourage the grandchildren to listen to their parents.

Joe was preceded in death by his late wife Avonderine Stanley, son, Joel L. Molock, mother, Minnie S. Dennis and sister, Diane R. Wilson.

Joe leaves to cherish fond memories a son, Joseph Z. Stanley and daughter, Linda M. Jones (Frederick); four grandchildren Joseph Stanley, Jr., Stacey Locke (Dennis), Ebony Stanley, Amirah Brown (Gregory); several great grandchildren and a host of family members and friends. He also leaves a devoted and special friend Mary Cephas.

Lovingly submitted,
The Family
