Stanley was a great guy. I would run into him on calls, but I really got to know him when he stuccoed my house. Always hustling with a smile on his face. Rest well my friend!

I’m deeply saddened to learn of the passing of a friend and co-worker. Stan and Dennis Baker were on RA21 while I was there and were quite the pair; funny, hard-working, competent and reliable was Stanley. His construction background came in handy during overhauls, when training rookies and working on engine-house projects around old 21’s. Stan’s friendly demeanor was always welcoming to newcomers and his unique laugh would catch unsuspecting newcomers by surprise.
RIP my friend, and Godspeed to the entire Croom family.

Sorry to hear of Stan’s passing. I was a new Capt at 21’s and he really helped get me settled in. He was supportive and provided stability to the team. As Jerry said, his construction skills came in handy and he was our go to man when we rehabbed the front yard of the old station. I really enjoyed his sense of humor as our shift was a comedy act. He advised against the yard project and his reaction was priceless when the local neighborhood stole all the new palm trees and bricks he installed. As he predicted. Sad to hear he is gone so soon. Rest in peace Stanley.
Dennis Baker says
Stan was an incredible man. He made the worst day on the job bearable. We ran on so many horrific calls together and yet we made it through them unscathed. He never cursed or swore. He seemed to take everything in stride and in so doing I slowed down. He was my friend and very much respected partner on the rig for almost 10 years. He saved my life. God has got a good man with him.

This is such difficult news. I had the privilege to work with Stan at 21’s. I was a brand new FF/PM and worked with Stan often. His knowledge, experience, and calm demeanor helped shape me into the FF/PM I am today. Stan was a great man and treated everyone with dignity and respect. Stan you will be missed!!
Tim Larson says
I had Stan as a rookie. Not sure where, maybe FS-1. He was a great guy, hard worker and after probation a contributor to the Station and the Department. Rest In Peace Stanley.
