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”.
