STANLEY, John Reid

After an honourable and courageous battle with cancer, John passed away at home on July 22nd, 2020 with his spouse, best friend and soulmate of 20 years Cheryl Murphy by his side along with his mother in-law. Cherished only son of Bev and Jack Stanley and son in-law to Janice Murphy and the late Frank Murphy. Forever remembered and greatly missed by his stepchildren Madison and Owen (Timmins). Beloved father to his daughters Kryn and Chelsea (Stanley). Survived by his sister Lori (Stanley). Will be missed by brother in-law Sean Murphy (Brooke Delong) and sister in-law Lisa Murphy (Rick Waller). Fondly remembered by nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Devoted Great-Uncle to Izzy, Petra and Paisley Blackmore. John battled cancer like he drove his Vintage Dirt Modified race car: hard,courageous and always strong. The “Superman” will be incredibly missed and forever remembered by his Dirt Modified Nostalgia Tour family and friends both on and off the track. John was happiest driving his vintage race car around on many different Canadian and American tracks. The deepest heartfelt appreciation to Dr. Nazik Hammad, Dr. Maria Kalyvas, Nurse Paula who made it possible for John to spend one last summer (of 2019) racing. Also, a very generous thank you to KHSC Cancer Centre’s dedicated nurses, doctors and staff. A very generous thank you to all home nurses from CBI; you always made John’s days brighter and easier. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. All donations are asked to be made to the UHKF - Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario, 55 Rideau Street #4 , Kingston, Ontario K7K 2Z8 in John’s honour.

Our sincere sympathy going out to Cheryl and his children and his parents Bev and Jack Stanley. John will be dearly missed by all and also his racing family as there will certainly be a great void felt without John at the race track. He was a great racer and was admired for his great sportsmanship and will be dearly missed by his other racing buddies. He fought a long hard battle but his struggle is now over and he is at peace and pain free. RIP John and know your memory will live on.

John was a man of immense integrity and loyalty. We traveled thousands of Km's together on racing adventures to dirt tracks throughout Ontario and New York State. One Friday getting ready for three day race weekend I discovered I had a fuel pump with a cracked housing. I made four phone calls to race car parts suppliers and nobody had one. My next call was to Johnny to see if he had a spare. Cheryl and him were already rolling down the 401, he said let me pull over and check the trailer. Five minutes later Johnny calls me back, says he has one and he will give it to me when I get to Mohawk. He saved my race weekend and would not accept any payment. I will really miss John, he was my friend and my race travelling companion. Cheryl, Ryan and myself pass along our deepest condolences to his partner Cheryl, his Mom and Dad, Bev and Jack who were John's biggest fans on and off the track, his four children and his sister Lori. RIP Johnny

There is not a single memory that stands out about John but rather his overall no nonsense view of life. He was not a man of many words so that made you listen all the more when he did speak. His hilarious dry sense of humour was one of the traits that I remember most about him. But what will always remind me oF John will be every time I watch a NASCAR race. Next to Cheryl and his family, boy did that man love racing and his face lit up and he could become so animated when talking about it. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed - I will miss seeing him race and him coming up into the stands with a smile on his face. Love Lisa, Rick, Brooklin and Jay. Xoxo
