I knew Stanley thru the NWA Gem and mineral society and found him very knowledgeable on minerals and gems. He would share any new information he had read about with club members. He will be missed.

Stanley Wolfram exemplified the true meaning of selfless service. He cared about the people of Siloam Springs, giving of his time and energy to protect and serve anyone and everyone who needed help.

He set the bar high when it came to dedication to his beloved, adopted community.
Stanley had many friends and will be missed by all.

May God bless and comfort each member of his family.

Stanley was a member of the Northwest Arkansas Gem and Mineral Society for over thirty years. His passing has left a big hole in the club. He was always willing to serve and did in many capacities. At different times, Stanley was president of the Society, secretary, show chairman, security for the Society's shows. He provided many video programs for the meetings. He was faithful to get the clubhouse heated for the meetings or would contact someone to do so in his absence. I am sure I have missed naming all the things Stanley did for the Society. He was a very knowledgeable person and would take time to explain to you. Anthony, Eric, Tim; may God give you peace and comfort.

So sorry to hear of Stanley's passing. He will definitely be missed at the Rock Club where he was very active.
