Rest In Peace, Bob Stanley: Good Man, Good Catholic, Superb Writer, Catechist and Teacher

Robert M. Stanley
February 6, 1935 – August 29, 2022

After a long illness, Robert Manfred Stanley passed away on August 29, 2022. He was 87.

Bob was born in Washington, D.C. on February 6, 1935, to Manfred and Mary Stanley. At age 7, they relocated to Redwood City, California where he met his wife of 67 years, Loretta (Lori).

He graduated from Sequoia Union High, enlisting in the Air Force shortly thereafter. He was stationed at Keesler Air Base in Biloxi, Mississippi where he became an instructor of radar technology. He was honorably discharged in 1957 with the rank of Staff Sergeant.

For the next 30 years, he was employed by IBM as a Customer Engineer, winning many awards. After retirement, Bob relocated to the foothills.

Bob enjoyed riding his tractor and watching old movies,
as well as writing and hosting his world renowned,

Catholic apologetics and information website:
The Catholic Treasure Chest
.

He is survived by his wife Lori, daughter Christine (Christopher) and granddaughters Madelyn and Grace Horton.

Thanks to all those who were there in his time of need: Wolf Creek Care Center, Hospice of the Foothills and fellow members of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church.

Services will be held at St. Patrick’s Church in Grass Valley on Friday, September 23rd: Rosary 12:15 pm, Mass 1:00, then a gravesite service at St. Patrick’s Cemetery. A reception will follow at St. Patrick’s Church Hall. Donations may be made to Hospice of the Foothills or St. Patrick’s Catholic Church.

Editor’s note: By prior arrangement with Bob Stanley, Doug Lawrence at AskMeAboutGod.org will continue hosting and maintaining Bob’s superb, world renowned, Catholic website, The Catholic Treasure Chest, for many years to come. It would be a sin to let such a great, Catholic resource perish, especially during the times we are presently experiencing.

Let Us Pray…

Eternal rest grant unto Bob Stanley, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Please pray an “Our Father” and a “Hail Mary” for Bob, right now. I’m sure he’ll appreciate it.

Today’s “Gem” from Bob Stanley’s “The Catholic Treasure Chest”: The Holy Bible Is A Scientific Wonder

Many principles of modern science were recorded in the Holy Bible long before scientists discovered them.

Gen 15:5, stars are innumerable.
Gen 7:11,8:2, fountains and springs exist under the sea.
Lev 15:13, a flow of water becomes cleansing. This was not found until the 19th century by Pasteur  in his discovery of bacteria.
Lev 17:11, the critical importance of blood in the life process. It was not found until the 1900s, by  Joseph Lister (1827-1912), that the immune system is in the blood. Prior to this, doctors bled people to rid them of  poisons.
Job 26:7, the earth hung upon nothing, the gravitational field.

Askmeaboutgod.org is the new “home” of The Catholic Treasure Chest website

I’ve lost touch with my old friend Bob Stanley,
of The Catholic Treasure Chest
and the original domain name is no longer available.

Bob’s site has been (for the last 20 years or so) one of the finest, most complete, truly Catholic websites on the planet.

According to the informal plan that Bob and I worked up together, many years ago: Should such an event occur, I was to restore the site from a comprehensive backup and get things up and running again, ASAP.

The Catholic Treasure Chest is once again, up and running
and may be accessed through available links
on this (www.AskMeAboutGod.org) site.
