Stanley Tilghman was his name but “Crow” was the man we came to know and love. Stanley was a kind and loving person who would always greet you with smile. He would give you the shirt off of his back. Everyone who knew him always had nothing but nice things to say about him. He was a joy to be around, and he enjoyed sharing good times with his family. He was the life of the party. He was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan and didn't mind expressing his love for his team.

A host of nieces, nephews and cousins. Three devoted friends Jasper Brown, Eric Wright, and Carlton Washington. He was preceded in death by his parents Sgt.
