Mr. Stanfield loved all of his students and teachers, and continued to speak fondly of them after retirement.  Mr. Stanfield was named Principal of the Year several times.  

Harry never met a stranger, would talk to anyone about any subject, and was always the life of the party.  He leaves behind many friends, too numerous to name, and precious memories of good times with his family.

Knew Harry in 4-H and he was a hoot. The kind of person you just loved to be around. My regards to all his family.
