Edgar's picture
James Stanley Tabor, age 57, passed away peacefully at Grace Home in Shreveport, at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014, following a long and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He was born on March 25, 1956, in Many to Billy James “Buddy” Tabor and Barbara Jean (Smith) Tabor. Stanley grew up in Many, where he attended Many High School. He worked for many years in his family’s business, Tabor’s Farm and Ranch Supply, before moving to  Shreveport where he was an employee of Chevyland for the past several years. Stanley was preceded in death by his beloved brother,  Bruce; his parents, Buddy and Barbara Tabor; his paternal grandparents, William “Bill” and Ruby Tabor; and his maternal grandparents, Tom and Gertie Smith. He is survived by one son, James Stanley Tabor, II, Marthaville; 
one sister, Donna Beth Carter Schiefelbein; one niece, Ashley Carter Bhramayana; one nephew, Anthony Craig Carter, Jr., all from areas in and near Baton Rouge; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Stanley was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan throughout his entire life. He loved to sell cars, but mostly he loved to own and drive beautiful “fast” cars. His will to live far exceeded most. He never gave up throughout his illness. Family and friends wish to express their gratitude to Dr. Molly Thomas, M.D. and Dr. Neelima Chintapalli, M.D. of the Christus Schumpert Cancer Treatment Center and the wonderful staff at Grace Home for the professional and loving care shown to Stanley. Also, very special thanks and gratefulness go out to Chevyland; his close friends, Rick Free and his co-workers at Chevyland; Joseph and Trish Schoth; and Janell Stevens, all of whom expressed their unconditional love and support throughout his illness. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Grace Home. A gathering in memory of Stanley was held on Monday, Jan. 13,
2014, at Auld’s Funeral Home Chapel in Shreveport. A graveside memorial will be held at a later date at Fort Jesup Cemetery in Many
