Stanley ‘Stan’ Earle Stinchfield
1945 – 2010

LEWISTON — Stanley ‘Stan’ Earle Stinchfield, 64, a long-time resident of Wilton, passed away at Central Maine Medical Center after courageously battling leukemia.

Stan was born in Rumford, graduated from Stephens High School and served in the Army National Guard. Throughout his professional career, he was a truck driver and entrepreneur and once retired, he was active with the Lion’s Club and also attended United Baptist Church of Dryden.

He was passionate about his family, his faith in God and his work. He never knew a stranger, had a delightful spirit and a powerful handshake. He was an avid football fan, NASCAR enthusiast and enjoyed motorcycle rides with his dog and sidecar sidekick, “Cinnamon.”

In the latter part of his life, he enjoyed watching Law and Order and Ice Road Truckers and enjoyed his phone conversations with his former co-workers and fellow truck drivers. Even as he fought his illness, he maintained his uplifting attitude and concern for others as well as a sense of humor and always did so with a smile.

He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Joyce Brown Stinchfield of Wilton; three daughters, Shelley Jackson and husband, James, of Stratton, Vicki Stinchfield and boyfriend, Stacy Henderson, of Jacksonville, N.C., and Susan LeGrand and husband, William, of Wilton; five grandchildren, Jordyn Jackson and boyfriend, Larry McCormick, of Red Springs, N.C., Samantha McGregor and husband, Michael James, of Gray, Kian LeGrand, Kayla LeGrand and Kyla LeGrand of Wilton; two siblings, Pamela Lincoln of Colman, Mich., and Richard Stinchfield of Methuen, Mass.; three aunts and one uncle, Marjorie Richard of Phillips, Eleanor Fish of Weld, Gloria Jones of Canton and Lester Libby of Rumford; several nieces and nephews; and many cousins.

He was predeceased by his father, Richard Stinchfield; and his mother, Jean Libby Stinchfield Goodwin.
