Stanley met the love of his life, Frances Adams, while singing in the choir at St. Paul's UMC. Excited to start their new lives together, the two were married June 2, 1956. They had two children, Stacy Hawkinson of Albuquerque, NM and Roxanne Hawkinson Dillon of Plano, TX. Their children meant the world to them. Stanley enjoyed his role as a grandpa. He treasured his time with his grandkids Dylan Hawkinson and Tanner and Tyler Dillon, and loved being their Papa. Stanley was passionate about his job at White Sands Missile Range. He started working there in college and continued for his entire career. Stanley was an active member of University United Methodist Church, devoting his time and energy to the choir and teaching adult Sunday School classes.
