Stan Brawley

Wednesday, March 17th, 2021

Stan Brawley, 73, of Burlington, went to be with the Lord Wednesday, March 17, 2021.  He was born September 11, 1947 to Zelma Jean Brawley, in Sedro-Woolley, WA.  The Brawley family originally came from Green Forrest, Arkansas before moving here to Lyman where Stan was born.  He was raised by his grandparents, Iva and Minta Brawley who imparted Stan’s solid foundation of faith.  Loved and nurtured by Charlie and Joanne Brawley, Larry and Betty Brawley, and Jim and Aretta Price, his dearly loved family.

Stan loved his country.  He served in the US Army from 1966-1968.  Stan continued to serve God’s purposes for America.  His passion was for God’s ordained providential destiny.  Stan was a skilled craftsman for 45 years.  He was known for his integrity in this profession.  There was no job he could not master.  Stan was a selfless man, who always had an open hand to help anyone in need.

In 1964, Stan met the love of his life, Jolline Frizzell.  Five years later, they were married.  There wasn’t a day that was without Stan and Jolline.  They went on to have three beautiful girls, Eryn Rachel, Megan Kirsten, and Jessica Michael.  They were his joy!  The three strong men that married Stan’s girls are Fernando Aguilar, Aaron Curbow, and Cody Sedgwick.  Stan and Jolline were blessed with 10 grandchildren, oldest to youngest, Christian Aguilar, Jacob Rivas, Eli Aguilar, Cassidy Rivas, Naomi Sedgwick, Sawyer, Sadie and Hudson Sedgwick, Addie Curbow, Kiarra Sedgwick, and in June will be the arrival of Stan’s first great grandbaby, Jocelyn Aguilar.

A Time of Visitation will be available at Lemley Chapel, 1008 Third Street, Sedro-Woolley, from 9:00 to 5:00, Thursday, and from 11:30 until service time at the Church on Friday.  A Funeral Service will be held at 1:00, Friday, March 26, 2021 at the Sonrise Christian Center Skagit, 10217 Collins Road, Sedro-Woolley.  A Graveside Service will follow at 2:30 at Lyman Cemetery with Military Honors, Pastor Michael Stansberry presiding.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Compassion International in Stan’s name.  Share your memories of Stan and sign the online guest register.

    Jolline and Family,
    Although I’m too far away to join Stan’s service, my heart is with you in love, prayers and memories, both now & for the days ahead.
    Stan was a kind and loving cousin and such a major part of our lives in growing up just one block apart, and with him and Curtis just 1-1/2 months apart in age.
    I’m so thankful Curtis, Cozette and I were able to visit with him and Uncle Charlie in January and have prayer together. It will be a special memory to me for our ride and visit back over the mountain.
    Oh, Heaven is rejoicing and our family is growing there. How great to know that Stan is safe with his loving Heavenly Father.

    I have wonderful memories of visiting Stan and Jolline’s most beautiful home they created in Washington. Jaw dropping! Peace inducing! Gorgeous! And relaxing!
    Spent Fourth of July there! So fun! Fireworks in their front yard.

    Memories of running into Stan and Jolline in Redding at a Randy Clark event back in 2017 or 2018.

    Memories of seeing them when they stayed Joe and Sue’s because of a passing of a close friend in Riverside, and seeing how much they loved and were there for their friend during such a difficult time for them all.
    Speaking to them and sharing with them around this time they were in town and visiting, was such an encouragement and blessing to my soul. Conversations of God, the miraculous, our supernatural God, and the unseen… and any question I had for them they openly shared their experiences and answered.

    The special time I got to spend time with Jolline @ Starbucks and at the Apple store in Rancho Cucamonga. We went together to get her phone fixed, and the special intimate conversations we had about life and growing up/childhood and relating to one another and having honest conversations. Moments and memories I will cherish.

    Their honesty, their encouragement, their example, the passion and love in their eyes. The life and brightness the light that always followed them wherever they went. Their very presence shone brightly, wherever they were was lit up, I remember telling Jonathan. That I could sense that. They lit up any room and space and filled it with freshness and life and light.

    These memories I will cherish forever and never forget.
    Thank you both. Jolline and Stan. Love you. And appreciate you.

    It seems so unfair, that you all would have to go through this. My heart breaks for you all, and my condolences to you all.
    Your family has always been one to remember and cherish.
    What a LIGHT, JOY, and example of Christ you all are. Strong. Willful, and determined in all you do to Love others and Love STRONG. To be there for others when they need you. Stan and Joline Brawley, created a Beautiful Family legacy and example, that will go on for eternity. A Family Legacy that pleases God. A family that will forever continue to represent Him well because he burns bright in your lives.

    I will miss Stan here on earth that is for sure. As I know so many will. I look forward to the day I will get to see him again. His face beaming in perfect glory and joy, filled with the Light of The Father, and joyous in seeing the fulfillment of what Christ paid.
    Stan was a resilient man. And I know that he IS alive today more than ever. With no pain in his body, thank you Lord for that, that there is no pain in heaven. To be with you is better than anywhere else.

    Stan knew the Father, and was so humble in all his ways. He was a quiet man of meekness and strength deep down that he carried and hid well. He was bold yet meek. He was wise and is kind. I will always remember him for the kind loving man he was. His tender smile. How hard he worked, and how much he gave of himself to so many. He was a blessing to all he came in contact with.
    Joline, Megan, Eryn, and family,
    My heart is with you. I’m soo sorry I cannot be there to embrace you as circumstances have not allowed me to. But please know if I could be there, to embrace you and be there for you.. in an instant I would. My heart longs to be with you. I pray I get to see you in the near future soon.
    You have all been on my mind and I think of you often and pray for all of you. For your hearts. Your faith. I will pray for Courage. I have been praying for comfort most importantly. May the Spirit of God, the Holy one, comfort you, as only He can, and as he is purposed to do so. You all know how much you are loved by the Father because your faith and hope is STRONG. But in these times may we encourage one another and I pray hope, over you all, and peace. That you may all join together as a family and comfort one another and embrace each other strongly and find peace. That God would continue to guide and lead you to press on and give you wisdom with how to continue and for future choices and decisions. That God would continue to lead you in all you do, and may you not feel alone. May you feel Gods presence so very very close and near. May you feel his embrace. Hear his voice and tangibly feel his oil of love.

    … For peace and comforted joy knowing that Stan has SEEN the Father, is WITH Him at this very moment right now and doing amazing,
    and praise God that we will all meet with him again.
    Again, I am so sorry for your loss, and I love you all so very much.

    Stan, thank you so much for your example.
    I will really miss you here on earth, but will see you in eternity. Thank you God for the Brawley family and all of their kids, because through them, I’ve seen a fierce love, and that love has come from you.
    May their fire, which is You in them, continue to burn bright for you. Thank you for them. Bless them and be with them during this most difficult time. We thank you that you are with us, that you are FOR us, that you feel our pain, and hurt, and we thank you that you Love Stan more than any of us could, because he is your child, your son. You created him and saw him as a child, as a baby, and you gave him life and breath and have never left him. You gave him love, Filled him with your love, and you gave him YOU, yourself, your son Jesus, your Spirit.
    You also gave and blessed him with a beautiful family that I still get to enjoy.

    May God comfort us all, as we miss his life here on earth. But have hope for eternity.

    With deep love, prayers, and condolences,
    Priscilla Moore and Family

    Stan, you are gone much too early from ours lives. Our comfort is knowing you are in the presence of our Lord God. See you soon! Joe and Sue

  • Maureen Tristan

    My heart is broken over this unexpected, painful news. I knew Stan to be the rock of his family and his love for Jolline was priceless. Stan had a compassionate spirit and was always willing to go the extra mile for a friend in need. My children, Sara, David and Jennifer knew their Uncle Stan to be a man of unparalleled kindness. I knew Stan and Jolline not only as relatives, but as faithful friends and companions who shared their love for our Savior and Lord Jesus. My children, who now have families of their own, remember special days with Uncle Stan and Aunt Jolline, and enjoying playtime at their home in Riverside, California with Eryn, Megan, and Jessica. Stan’s unshakable integrity and his resolve to live for Jesus spoke louder than he did. We are blessed to be family.

    It’s only been 6 days since God called you home but to me seems like an eternity, uncle Stan you meant the world to me the love you had for your family and friends showed in every aspect of your life. You will truly be missed God knew what he was doing when He called his servant home.

    What I loved about Stan was he was a Man of God, always. I looked up to him for his faith and wisdom. Also, how he cherished his wife and family. I enjoyed our talks each time we went family camping. Honored to have known him on earth! Stan will be so missed but we celebrate his homecoming into our Lords presence!
