David Keith Stanley

PLATTSBURGH — David Keith Stanley, 53, of Plattsburgh has passed into the arms of the Lord where he is now free of his pain and suffering. He was born Aug. 15, 1959, the sixth child of the late Stanley A. Stanley and Jean (Barry) Stanley of Plattsburgh.

David always spoke highly of his childhood reminiscing of his days spent at the family camp in Loon Lake. David was a very active man, from his 5K cross country skiing to his frequent walks throughout the city. He was an active member of his church an avid bowler, movie-goer, bookworm and trivia brainiac. He was also a huge N.Y. Giants fan. David was a dedicated Plattsburgh City School District employee. He had been the custodian for the Oak St and Bailey Avenue Schools for over 29 years. He was known to many students, faculty, staff and community members as "Mr. Stanley". He truly loved his job and every aspect of it. Unfortunately his illness hindered his ability to continue working, so he made the very difficult decision to retire early on Oct. 5, 2012.

David is survived by his daughter Elizabeth (Wade) Wildman of Virginia and son Adam Stanley of Plattsburgh. He is also survived by his mother Jean Stanley of Plattsburgh and several siblings, Lynda Stanley of Virginia, Julie (Paul) Wagner of Costa Rica,Vickie (Scott) Johnston of Plattsburgh, Steven (Debra) Stanley of Plattsburgh, Kathleen(James) Gregware of Fla., and Teresa (John) Frazer of Albany and several nieces and nephews. David is also predeceased by his father Stanley A. Stanley.
