Heaven gained another amazing soul on June 30th, 2017. Stanley Harry Haddox, born July 9, 1940, has joined his preceding mother Elizabeth Merle, his beloved father-in-law James Wilson, mother-in-law Virginia Wilson, and his loving brother Kenneth in peace. Stan, better known to some as Satch, originated from Lorain and Sheffield Lake, Ohio and later lived out his life in Corpus Christi and Lockhart, Texas. He is survived by his beautiful wife of 57 years Sally, his three children Sonya (husband Tom), Paula, and Julie, his four grandchildren, Michael, Krystal, Stacie, and Jesi, his four great grand-kids, Alyssa, Justin, Nathan, and Kynsleigh, his sister Carol (husband James), and his brother George (wife Helen), wife of Kenneth, Hilda, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Stan served our country's Navy on the USS Manley from 1958-1962, as a Pilot Rescuer and was known as "The Swimmer". He strived to make a wonderful life for his family. He worked as a painter in Corpus for over 35 years. He and his wife retired and built a gorgeous home in Lockhart on a large plot of land to live out the life they had dreamed of. Stan grew up with very little and worked hard to help provide something better for his family. He often regarded his life as a blessing, saying he "never thought he could have something so nice." In turn, showing us all how hard work can pay off.

He told the best stories, and only the ones that made you laugh. On most days you could find him baking cookies, playing golf, watching John Wayne, or visiting all the neighborhood garage sales. He often got "spiffed up", always meticulously combed his hair, and took his wife dancing, where they were desirously looked upon by friends and family for their display of love. Rarely could you find the two apart.

Stan wasn't rich or famous or even without flaws, but he was widely loved and always remembered because of his quick wit, sense of humor, and his tremendous will to help others. We will never forget those grey blue eyes and the way his love emitted from them. "Glad you got to see me."
