    He had a great sense of humor and we shared many laughs. Patty and their family are in my thoughts and prayers. He will be missed by so many.

  4. I extend my sincerest condolences to the Tobias family on the passing of Stanley. It is never easy to lose a loved one and the process of mourning takes time. I pray that the entire family will be guided through this time of grief by sharing their love for Stan, each other and those of us who wish you the very best. As a classmate of Stan’s at Athens High, we too feel his loss as we reconsider our own mortality, the brotherhood we shared in school and the meaningfulness having known each other at the beginning of our adulthood. May the Peace of the Lord be with you always.
