Gus Stanfield
By Velma Pemberton Decker (2006)


    Guy Robert Stanfield died at an early age—about 8 years (circa 1933). He was a friend and classmate of Velma Pemberton, Jack Fritts, and Johnny Hinkle.

    “It was a very sad time for all of us. He was such a nice little boy. Guy Robert Stanfield lived up the hollow above the powerhouse and tipple. He had a brother Charles and a sister Lois. Lois was a beautiful girl and was my brother Red’s (Leslie) age. Their mother Marie thought the world of Red. He and Lois were very good friends then and the remained good friends throughout their lives. I don’t think Lois and Red ever really dated but they had a lot of parties up in the Hollow. I wasn’t old enough to understand a lot but I know there were moonshine and fun times for them back then.

    After Red married Grace and Lois married, they kept in touch all those years and had retirement cottages in Kalkaska, Michigan where there was good fishing and hunting and a lot of morel mushrooms. Red and Grace are gone but their children still have the cottage for a get away vacation spot.”
