Obituary for Stanley A. N. Dawdy

January 22, 1922 - February 9, 2020
Maceo, Kentucky | Age 98


Stanley A.N. Dawdy, 98, of Maceo, passed away February 9, 2020, at his home. He was born January 22, 1922, in Lawton, Iowa, to the late Fred and Arrilla Dawdy. Stanley loved fishing at Carpenter Lake in Maceo, and attending auctions and garage sells, and even had his own booth set up at the local consumer mall for years. He had earned a degree in horticulture and was an avid gardener, he loved being in his yard working with his flowers and planting his wife's little green onions and radishes. Stanley enjoyed watching western movies and playing cribbage with his son-in-law. He was a fan of NASCAR, especially Jimmy Johnson. Stanley looked forward to visits from his great-grandchildren, as it gave him an audience for his storytelling, something his family will always remember about him. One of his favorite things was his homemade apple pies that his daughter-in-law made him every other week. Something his children will always cherish is how he sang "Billy Boy" to them at the end of every day when they were small.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 78 years, and his high school sweetheart, Avon Mae Dawdy; son, Eddie Dawdy; grandson, Guy Dawdy; great-grandson, Tyler Dawdy; son-in-law, Robert Griffith; and his brothers, Cleown, Orville, and Melvin Dawdy.

Stanley is survived by his children, Judy (Gayln) Taylor, Pat Griffith, Larry (Charlene) Dawdy, Gary (Karen) Dawdy, Kari Fuller, and Beatrice (Larry) Davison; 21 grandchildren. 23 great-grandchildren; 21 great-great grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; and his sidekick, his Yorkie, Penny.
