Stanley Brock

Stanley Preston Brock, 67, of Montgomery, Texas went to celebrate eternity with the Lord on April 29, 2018. On December 4, 1950, Stan was born to Charlie Preston Brock and Olia Lurleen Grimes Brock in Freeport, Texas. He graduated from Brazosport High School in 1969 and went on to earn an Associate’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M. In September of 1972, Stan married Sherry Lynn Willingham in Rosehill, Texas. In August of 1977, their first son, Charlie Ray Brock was born and a few years later in June of 1981, their second son, Barrett Allen Brock was born. Stan enjoyed a long career with ExxonMobil which provided his family the opportunity to travel and reside in many different places. They spent 14 years raising the boys in Green River, Wyoming and from there they made an international move to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. During their travels they were blessed with the opportunity to make a lot of lifelong friends. In 2001, they finally made their way back to Texas where they resided in Tomball until moving to their dream home in 2009 in Montgomery, Texas. Stan and Sherry are members of the Montgomery United Methodist Church where Stan was faithfully involved in the Church community including the Cooking Ministry.
Stan is survived by his wife Sherry, his son Charlie and daughter in law Meagan, three granddaughters, Hayleigh, Lacie and Kynley of Crosby, Texas, his son Barrett and daughter in law Holly, granddaughter Abigail of Houston, Texas, sister Loretta Kaye Woodward-Wells and brother in law James Wells of Charleston, IL, and many more beloved extended family members.
Stan is proceeded in death by his father, Charlie Preston Brock, his mother, Olia Lurleen Brock and his brother, Charlie Roy Brock, his father and mother in law, Raymond and Dorothy Willingham and his maternal and paternal grandparents.


A Memorial Service will be held in his honor on May 8, 2018 at 11:00 am at Montgomery United Methodist Church (MUMC) with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the MUMC Cookers or MUMC Nurture Ministry.
Stan was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. “Life is fragile, handle with care!”

Stan and I go back to when we were toddlers at First United Methodist Church in Freeport.  We grew up together at school, church, and Cub Scouts.  Some of my earliest memories are of my dad taking me over to the Brock's house where their family had one of the best Lionel model train sets around.  It was so big it had to be set up in the upstairs of their double garage.  It probably covered three sheets of 5 x 9 plywood.  I have a school photograph of our 1st grade class, and that day Stan was wearing his Cub Scout uniform.  He was always a fine young man, and I will always remember his great optimism and manners.  With Stan, it was always, "Yes Sir or No Sir, and Yes Ma'am or No Ma'am".  I thank God most appreciatively for having had Stan as a good friend over the years.

Stan was a good friend.  He was always welcome in our home and frequently would come over for our Christmas Eve spread my mom would put out.  I wish I had known he was ill.  He will be missed.

The company I am at worked with Stan on a training project for ExxonMobil a few years ago. I didn't realize he was the "Stan Brock" I went to school with until we met him for lunch one day. It's such a small world! Everyone here enjoyed working with him and always commented on what a nice guy he was. I know he will be missed by his family and friends. I received this link this morning with his obituary.

Rest in peace Stan.

I remember Stan as a nice guy. That doesn’t sound like much these days in a world that seems to glorify and romanticize the macho muscular brute that makes the girls swoon and strikes fear into the hearts of just plain ol’ ordinary guys. But when you think about it, who would you want to stand by you when you need a friend to talk to or just be quiet with? Stanley Brock was that kind of person. I know the family and friends of Stan Brock will miss him terribly, but the Lord welcomed this man to glory with “well done, good and faithful servant.”

Sorry for being off line for the past two plus years ! My IPad crashed and didn’t get a new one, until now - and just now renewed my guest class membership !  Oh my gosh 😱 just went on the ‘ In Memory of ‘ - I was sad to see that Stanley had past away !  We were in band together : he was such a great friend, classmate, and fun to be around ! We were always cutting up, and having a laugh ( what a great guy ), lots of memories and good times !  So sad, again - sorry for being late !
