Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Robert “Stanley” Bohannon (age 72)

On March 3rd, 2021, surrounded by the love of his wife and family, Robert “Stanley” Bohannon (age 72), left earth battling COVID-19, and left to be perfectly healed in the arms of Jesus.

“Stan”, as he was called by everyone, enjoyed absolutely everything about fishing. He caught the love of his life, Carolyn, his dedicated wife.  He was a husband who could not say “no” to his wife. He would do anything to make her smile. He was a dad who taught his daughters how to fish, drive a boat, save a buck and research everything. “We don’t need to buy it, just build it”.

With outstanding service to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office, he served from 1979-2004. He enjoyed sharing the exciting stories with friends and families. He was selected to represent Arkansas at the FBI Academy, April-June 1998. His family was very proud of his achievements there. 

Stan was preceded in death by his father, Fay Bohannon. He is survived by his sweet mother, Eloise Bohannon, his devoted wife, Carolyn Bohannon, his daughters: Tammy Casey (Joe Casey), Rachel Waddle (Joey Waddle), Debi Scott (Chris Scott), Robin Shepherd (Jeb Shepherd), his brother Tony Bohannon, his grandchildren: Milaya Crowder, Greer Waddle, RJ Casey, Daniel Casey, Kyle Rushin, Joy Casey, Hope Casey, Kolby Rushin, Trey Casey, Ernie Casey, Leeza Scott, Luby Casey, and Eric Shepherd, and his great grandchildren: Caspian Crowder, Milo Crowder, Hudson Rushin, Danae Crowder, Kekoa Casey, Eowyn Crowder, and Sawyer Rushin.

We will celebrate his life at Friendship Baptist Church on Brockington Road in Sherwood, Arkansas at 10:00 AM on Saturday the 6th of March, 2021.  

We ask that in place of flowers that you bring vegetable plant, fruit tree or seeds for his garden, so that we may share in the harvest and remember his dream to build a vegetable garden or donate to the Friendship Baptist Church “building fund”.

Arrangements are under the trusted direction of A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas, 72076. 501-982-3400.

    I knew and worked with Stan (I always called him “Bo”) when he was an investigator for the State Medical Examiner. Later we worked together at the Sheriff’s Office. One of the best all around law enforcement officers I’ve known. Rest in peace, my old friend. My sincere condolences to his family, may God Bless and comfort them.

    Bo was my best friend and fishing partner. We spent many hours in a boat together and had many experiences together both great and a few not so great. The next time I go fishing the first fish will be for him. I loved you like a brother and will miss talking to him. My prayers will never cease for Carolyn and all of family

    Bo was my best friend and fishing partner. We had a lot of great times and some not so great times but always enjoyed being with him. I loved him like a brother and will miss agravating him. The next time I’m fishing I will dedicate my first fish to his memory. Know that I will continue praying for Carolyn and her and Bo’s family

    Stan was the kind of guy that you would look up to for advice when you needed it. He took new Deputy’s under his wing and made them feel like they belonged. I was honored to have known Stan and worked with him during my time at the Sheriffs Office. I will always remember him as a friend, a great deputy and a mentor. Prayers to the family. Rest In Peace Stan.

    Carolyn, I just now saw the news about Stan, and am heartsick . I can’t think of him without thinking of your little Rusty puppy dog . . I can’t imagine the pain you, Eloise, Debi . . and your entire family are facing…. Stan was a good man, taken way too soon.
