Dr. Thomas (Tom) Milford Stanley, age 86 passed away on October 25, 2020 in Pine Knot, Kentucky.

Tom is survived by his wife of 67 years, Dorothy Stanley, and his son Steven and wife Myrna Stanley of Lexington, Kentucky, and his extended family comprising of the Mays, Brooks, Upchurch, and Bowling families, all of Oneida, Tennessee. He is preceded in death by his daughter, Donna Sue Stanley, and his parents Dr. Milford Stanley and Zona Stanley, his in-laws Willie and Agnes Mays, a special uncle Ted Q.

He began his practice in 1956 and worked with his father Dr. Milford Stanley in Whitley City, Kentucky for many years. Tom retired in August 2004.

Tom was a loving husband and father. Dr. Tom, as he was known by his patients, enjoyed his many years of practice and the patients in his care. He enjoyed working around his home doing carpentry work and his time spent on his John Deere mower. He was also an active member of the community and served as a housing commissioner for the housing board of McCreary County for over 40 years as well as on several other community boards and activities.
