The book of Stanley V. Ferguson’s life was open on November 29, 1949 in Cincinnati, Ohio to the union of William R. Ferguson and Annie L. Ferguson (nee Koon).
Stanley was the youngest of five siblings. Stan as he was called, grew up in the Avondale area; educated through the Cincinnati Public School System.
Stan confessed and accepted Jesus Christ at an early age, joined and attended Corinthian Baptist Church. Stan enjoyed being with family and friends. After finishing his schooling, he joined the Peace Corp, later the United States Army. Upon being honorably discharged, Stan was employed by the Kroger Company; and other various employment. Stan settled in the Madisonville area (he loved Madisonville).
Stan was a very kind hearted and caring person, he did not meet any strangers; and very sincere in his kindness and caring for others. Stan was always happy when his nieces and nephews would call him or visit when they came to town. He had no children of his own, but he loved children.
Stan was preceded in death by his parents, three brothers Harold, Roy and Charles Ferguson, nephew Harold Chapman.
Stanley is survived by his devoted sister Olive (nee Ferguson) Akemon, brother-in-law Lamon Akemon of Cincinnati, OH, one Aunt Louise Alford of Cincinnati, OH, four devoted nieces Deborah Pitts, of Atlanta, GA, Vicky L. Dukes, Laurel, MD, Kelly Gibson of Cincinnati, OH and Lisa of Atlanta, GA, nephews Michael Akemon (Karen) of Southampton, England and Lamon Akemon, Jr. of Cincinnati, OH. A host of great nieces and nephews relatives, extended family, friends and special friend Kimberly Howard.
The final page of Stanley’s life was read on March 17, 2017, when God sent his Angels to bring his son home, and shut the book, but a new book was open, the book of external life with Jesus Christ.
Stan was a son, brother, uncle and friend.
I wish to extend my sincere “Thanks” and gratitude to the faithful Angels of Madisonville who truly loved and cared about Stan’s welfare, called me when they were concerned about his well-being. May God continue to bless your kindness. Also, thanks to New Mission Baptist Church and Gain United Methodist Church.
