Aaron Jacob Stanley was born on June 4, 1982, in Mountain View, Missouri. He departed this world too early on October 9, 2021, enjoying one of his favorite past times, riding motorcycles. Aaron most recently resided in West Plains, Missouri.
As a young teen, he loved making stunt videos with his friends, skateboarding, singing, and clowning around. He was so good at clowning around, that he obtained a certificate from Mineral Area College Clown University. Aaron was also a self-taught musician and enjoyed singing and playing guitar with friends and family.
His career consisted of a short stint in construction and was followed by many years in the field of automotive repair at Mayfield’s and J&J recovery. The last few years, Aaron was employed at Gammill's Sewing Warehouse.
Aaron was a born-again Christian and was a very active member of His Place House of Worship. He used his talents with music to serve in the choir as well as many other facets of the church.
He is survived by his partner, Valli Dalton; his beloved daughter, Emma; two other children of the home, Dylan and Jesse; granddaughter, Chloe; grandparents, Ranny and Shirley Lorch; parents, Randy and Mary Berner; two sisters, Jessica Stanley (Lee Grassie) and Erica Marriott (Wes); one brother, Matthew Stanley; sixteen nieces and nephews; and five great-nieces and nephews, as well as numerous other extended family members.
Aaron is preceded in death by his biological father, Clarence; and numerous other relatives.
Aaron was a fun-loving dad and always lived life to the fullest. He was stern, but made everyone smile and was full of joy. You would always see him whistling and singing wherever he went. He will be truly missed by many, but we are so thankful for the love he brought to our lives.
