Mr. Stanley Earl “Stan” Pevy, age 70, a native of Knoxville, Tennessee, and a resident of Moss Point, Mississippi, passed away on August 17, 2020, after a prolonged battle with multiple illnesses. Stan graduated from Central High School in 1968 after showcasing his talents as a standout athlete in football and baseball.
What followed was a life that he drank to the fullest, indulging in the breadth of human experience like few can boast. For decades, he rode his Harley Davidson motorcycles and sported all the accoutre ma that such a lifestyle required, most notably the long beard and even longer hair. Running with a wild raucous crew; he rode to concerts and festivals nationwide. Stan likewise served those friends an untold number of drinks at both the Patio and Litton’s, and likely consumed just as many, if the truth were told.
For 28 years, Stan operated his family-owned business, Cut Right Complete Lawncare, and took great pride in his work. His sons can attest to that fact, citing the number of times they were each fired, as evidence. Later finding the Lord, he transformed his life, and with that came a calling for helping those in need, which took him to places, such as Indonesia, Israel, and Belize.
Stan was a longtime member of Corryton Baptist Church and joined Escatawpa Baptist Church, upon arriving in Mississippi. Most of all, however, he loved his family, and they dearly miss him. He strove to be a better person every day. The man that Stan became was a monument to the strength of his character and the grace of God. The lore around Stan Pevy contained endless stories, such as those that this paper would burst at the seams if recounted here. In short, when they built Stan Pevy, they truly did break the mold.
Stan is preceded in death by, his father, Oliver John, and sister, Vickie.
Stan leaves behind many who grieve him: his mother, Elsie Ruth; his beloved wife, Lisa and their son, John and his wife, Amy; one daughter, Ginger and her husband, Doug; his siblings, Jimmy and Sandra; his grandchildren, Drew and Niki; great-grandchildren, Wyatt and Parker; son, Chuck and his wife, Misty, and granddaughters, Lexi and Lier; daughter Jenny, her husband, Jay and grandchildren, Max, RJ, and Lindy; and son, Tread, his wife, Susan, and grandsons, Zack, Jimmy, and Robbie
