Stanley Norris Trammell II, 48, was born November 21, 1968 in Denison TX. His parents were Gail Jackson (Rambo) and Stanley Norris Trammell. He passed away peacefully February 9, at home in his sleep.

Stan worked for many years as a server in many restaurants during his life with the last place of employment being Salt Grass Steak House in McKinney where he made friends that quickly became part of his extended family. He was an avid scuba diver and loved all marine life even having a beautiful salt water aquarium that he was very proud of. During his life, he traveled to many exotic locations and made numerous friends everywhere he went. He was loved by all that he ever came in contact with and never made an enemy. His smile could light up a room and his laugh was infectious.
During the last few years of his life, even though he faced incredible odds with his health, his spirits remained optimistic and the love for his family and friends never wavered. He will be missed and loved by all that knew him.

He is survived by his mother, Gail Jackson of Denison, father, Stanley Trammell and wife Nila of Cartwright, Oklahoma, grandmother, Ethel Rambo of Colbert, Oklahoma, brother Ronnie Jackson and wife Sandy of Denison, sisters Kristin Kay Jackson of Paris TX and Brooke Jackson of Sherman, nieces Jordan Smith and husband Devin of Pottsboro, Raegan Jacob and fiancé Patrick King of Sherman, nephews Brantley, Mason and Weston Smith of Pottsboro and Carter Swindell of Sherman and numerous cousins and friends in Texas and Oklahoma (as he considered all his friends as his family as well). He was preceded in death by many family members both in Oklahoma and Texas.

In accordance with his wishes, there will be no memorial service or visitation. Instead, his nieces have arranged a balloon release to honor his memory. This event will take place on Sunday, February 19 2017 at 3:00pm at Waterloo Lake in Denison. We are asking that all his family and friends attend this balloon release to honor his memory and express what a wonderful person he was and how much he meant to so many.
