Richard Marsh Standley left this world peacefully on Monday October 1st, 2018 at Medical Center of Arlington. He was encircled with his wife and two of his children to the end.
He leaves his wife of 41 years, Guadalupe Chapa Standley; his two son's Bret Allen Standley and Ryan Michael Standley; his two daughter's Melissa Lee and Patricia Marie Reeves; his seven grandchildren Lynda Austin Freeze, Bret Standley Jr, Jonathan Standley, Madyson Reeves, Matthew Standley, Evalynn Standley, and Zoe Standley; two great grandchildren Gabriel Standley and Natalia Rose Freeze; and many close friends.
Born and raised in Houston Texas, the youngest of six children to Franklin Bethel Standley and Allie Lee Marsh Standley. He later moved his family to Arlington Texas in 1982 where he remained a resident until his passing.
His dedication and sacrifice to his family was his biggest strength. He was the protector, the defender, the fixer, the listener, the advisor, the rock. He touched countless people through his years and impacted the hearts of many. Although he is gone, he will be forever in our hearts because of the love he instilled in us.
