Stanley Jay Benson, age 55, passed away unexpectedly on November 21, 2016 in Bakersfield, CA. Stan was born on September 9, 1961 in Twin Falls, ID.

Stan spent over 30 years in the Oilfields providing for his loved ones at home. The Oilfields became his second home and through the years he acquired a family of people he admired and trusted.

Stan had a passion for many things. He loved spending time with his family; he was fiercely proud of his grand-babies. Stan was an avid golfer spending his weekends playing in various tournaments or keeping updated on the pros with the Golf Channel. He was a lifelong fan of the Dallas Cowboys and was so excited with how well they were playing this year. As a passionate NASCAR fan he would cheer on Kevin Harvick both from his favorite recliner and numerous times live trackside with his wife.

Stan left behind his loving family. His wife and best friend of 29 years Shari, daughter Maycee Majors and husband Jon, son Jarrod Scott and wife Chelsie, daughter Katy Benson and fiancé Dillon Harrington, and daughters Dana Benson and Xoi Benson. Beloved Papa to Keeyan and Sutton Majors, Hallie Scott and Baby Sister due in March, and Hannah Harrington. He is also survived by his father Raymond Benson, mother Linda Yeary, sister Debbie Hinds and husband Randy, brother Steve Benson and wife Julie, as well as an abundance of loving extended family members.

Stan is preceded in death by step father Noel Yeary, step mother Betty Harwell, and brother in law Ron Keesling Jr.

The family of Stan Benson would like to extend our deepest thanks and appreciation for the overwhelming support and love that we have been shown since his passing.
