Stanford (Goatman) considered most people a friend. He loved to always tell jokes, and most of them were corny; but he would bring laughter. He was a prankster also. He loved to hunt, fish, and do wood carving and painting. Until his health got bad, he was always outside doing something. He retired from the Tennessee National Guard in 1998, after serving 22 years, and 8 months. He loved his time in the guards, and we will leave it at that.
