On August 5, 2018 Stan Bollinger took his flight home to be with Jesus. He has served his Lord well as a faithful servant. He was loved by so many and known for his quiet spirit and servant’s heart. He now awaits his new body as we who love Christ wait for him.

“But we do not want you to be uninformed brother, about those who have fallen asleep that you may not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again even, so God will bring with him, those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord that we who are alive, and remain until the coming of the Lord, shall not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout with the voice of the Archangel and with the trumpet of God.; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words” 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Stan is predeceased by his parents, Foster and Dollie Bollinger, and his daughter Autumn Lee Bollinger. Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Dixie L. Bollinger; daughter, Amber Lee Weist (Mark) of Chapin S.C.; grandchildren, Shannon Kohler (Kyle), Tyler Weist, Nathan Weist, Jackson Weist, and Kylee Weist.
Stan was a 22-year veteran of the US Navy. He was also a member of Westminster Reformed Presbyterian Church where he served as deacon, he also was a former member of London Bridge Baptist Church in VA Beach. Stan was a loving Christian, husband, father, and grandfather. He loved to hunt and play golf. 

And thus, we say not good bye but “Maranatha”, the greeting used by early Christians “Come quickly, Lord Jesus”.

Dixie, Amber, and family, we grieve with you at this time but also we are so grateful to know that Stan is rejoicing in Heaven! This is a temporary separation knowing that we have the assurance of seeing our loved ones again. We love you.

May the beautiful contributions he's made in this life live on through his wife and children and grandchildren. Song that comes to mind as he was: Because He lives I can face tomorrow.


A quality man from central Pennsylvania who served God, Family and Nation in the finest of styles! Stan was greatly admired and respected by all of those who knew him. Dixie, Amber and family, you have our deepest sympathies. Allen and Mel

Condolences to the family and friends of Mr.Stanley Bollinger
may you find comfort from the God of all comfort , he will help
you cope with the loss of your dear loved one ,
( Isaiah 25:8) " He will swallow up death forever" once this promise is
fulfilled mankind will no suffer from losing their loved ones to death and
this promise comes from the God who cannot lie (Titus 1:2)….


My father Charles Bollinger was the first born son of Foster Bollinger and it is sad that Stanley never new him. He is 93 years old now and never met his father until he was 60 years old. He walked up on Fosters front porch and ask Foster if he knew who he was. Foster and Charles mother were only 15 years old when he was conceived. He was raised by his grandparents and missed out on a loving father all his life but he raised a son and two daughters, the son not being his biological son. We had attended the Bollinger reunion for two years and I know my father was hoping to meet Stanley each time but for some reason Stanley was not there those times. It is sad that never happened and they never got to meet. Blessing to you and yours as you grieve your loved one. Love in Christ Jesus , Susan Civitts
