Doug married the love of his life, Linda Stanley, on January 31, 1973. They built their life in Wallace raising their four children.
Doug enjoyed everything about the Silver Valley. He especially enjoyed camping and hunting at the Stanley Cabin in Slate Creek and then the Stanley Ranch on the St. Joe. You could find Doug playing music around the Silver Valley with his band “One Gun and the Long Shots”.
Doug worked on the police force for Shoshone County and for the City of Wallace, the Galena and Bunker Hill Mining Companies, Segale Construction Company in Auburn, WA, and retired from Biggy Construction Company in Auburn, WA.

A special thank you to a great friend Ron Austin, his daily Fox News watching, coffee drinking buddy for 25 years.
He is preceded in death by his dad Roger Stanley, two brothers Steve and Lance Stanley, and one sister Sheila McIntyre.
There will be a celebration of Doug’s life this summer at the Stanley Ranch.
