My deepest Sympathy goes out to the family of Anthony Stancil. He was like a brother to me and I have searched for him for almost 30 years to no avail. I thought I have lucked up and finally found my brother only to find this news. My heart's broken and never thought this would be the conclusion of my search. My most sincere sympathy's to the family.

Thank you for your service to the county, sir. We remember you always, even those of us who never met and never knew you. We learn of you and your quality from those who did and we emulate your example on duty. Im very sorry you died doing your job. There are hundreds of thousands of Mecklenburg county citizens who were able to walk out of their homes every day, go to work, drop their kids off at school and not be conftonted by murderers, rapist and dregs because you confronted them first. Thank you for that, from a grateful husband and father and fellow deputy.

My Brother,

I miss you dearly. I miss our father too. As much as I need the both of you I feel you with me spiritually. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you both. My heart is hurting but, I know the love is strong that is what gives me strength to go on. I miss Gwen & Jasmine too. Wow time doesn't stand still I stay in touch with family. That's very important because you don't know how much you miss your love ones until you wake up and can't hear them in your ear telling you how much they care. However, I know you all have love for me I can feel you within me. Oh how I cry my self to sleep thinking about those memories. Big Bro you already know the Stancil's never stand still no matter what I hope that you realize how much your missed. Your nephews are doing great your nieces and great nieces are doing great. I'm a grandma so, you know how I love family and miss you my beloved brother. You know big bro I have forgiven those who did us wrong and took you away from me but, I am staying strong & you know I Love You.

Capt. Stancil,

I am preparing to ride to DC on my bicycle to honor your sacrifice. I am honored to be able pay tribute in this manner. Each mile I ride is a time to reflect on your sacrifice as well as the sacrifice of all of those men and women have paid the ultimate price.
I pray that your children know what an amazing man and professional you were to everyone. You bestowed in me a discipline and respect that flows in me to this day and I will never take that for granted.

I was on Facebook, looking for old high school classmates and Marine buddies, and I did not know he had been gone almost 13 years. We were in the Marines together, and one of my roommates. The last time I saw Tony was May 1988, before I went to Japan. We had great times together. My smpathy goes out to his family.

I was just on the web, looking for old friends, and I did not know that Tony had been gone almost 13 years. We served in the Marines together, and one of my roommates. We had great times together. The last time I saw Tony was May 1988, before I went to Japan. I had tears in my eyes when I found out about his passing. My sympathy goes out to his family.

I served with STAN in the CORPS. We were both from the North BRONX, NY.
As a close friend while serving, I learned he too was from my part of the country. We entered the CORPS at the same time and were in the same MOS. He was easy going and loved his music. I fondly remember swapping tapes of NY HIP HOP whenever we went to the BRONX on leave.
I just found out of his passing while preparing for our MARINE CORPS 25 year reunion which will be MAY 1st weekend.
He will be missed and I am so saddened that he will not be there so we can share our accomplishments since we left the CORPS.

MY BROTHER REST IN PEACE. ONCE A BROTHER ALWAYS A BROTHER.

Anthony and I went to BLET together way back in 1991. I left Mecklenburg in 1994. But you never forget who your friends are. It's been over 11 years, but I still feel honored to visit ODMP and leave a thought for you...

CAPTAIN STANCIL, I THINK IT IS VERY UNFORTUNATE FOR MOST LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS TO HAVE TO WORK SECOND OFF-DUTY JOBS. THOSE JOBS KEEP US ON THE FRONT LINES MAKING THIS PLACE A BETTER AND SAFER PLACE TO LIVE. I PRAY THAT YOUR FAMILY IS WELL.

To Captain Anthony Stancil and his loved ones:

On this the tenth anniversary of your tragic death, please know that your memory is honored and revered today.

This world, this country, your community truly are better places because of you. To have lost you is a great tragedy, an irreplaceable, immeasurable loss for society. We are grateful for and to you, and honor you for all you did for us day in and day out whether you received a word of thanks or praise.

Rest in Peace, Captain Stancil. I am so humbled by your valor and courage. I also salute your service to your country as a Marine. My son Larry was your brother in green as well as blue and he was a fellow Tar Heel, having been born in Durham.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Captain Stancil gave to his community and the citizens of my home state of North Carolina, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on September 29, 1998.

Though I never knew him, he was part of my Law Enforcement family and I will mourn this deep loss the rest of my life. The impact today is no less than the moment it happened and the sacrifice no less important. I am sure he was a friend to many and loved dearly. He will never be forgotten and lives in memory with us still. May God continue to comfort us all.

I'M SORRY IT HAS TAKEN ME THIS LONG TO LEAVE A MESSAGE. DEATH OF FELLOW POLICE OFFICER'S JUST SEEMS TO BE HAPPENING MORE AND MORE EVERY YEAR. CAPT STANCIL WAS ONE OF MY SUPERVISOR'S WHEN I WORKED IN N.C. AND HE WAS ALSWAYS HAPPY AND NEVER HAD ANY BAD WORDS FOR ANYONE. I KNOW GOD HAS HIS REASONS BUT I CANT UNDERSTAND WHY. I FEEL SOMETIMES THAT WE AS SOCIETY HAS DROPPED THE BALL SOMEWHERE AND THE INDIVIDUALS THAT CHOOSE CRIME AND VIOLENCE AS A WAY OF LIFE NEED TO BE ABRUPTLY ENGAGED BY THOSE WHO ARE TIRED OF THE PRICE WE ALL PAY.

I THINK OF YOU OFTEN CAPTAIN, BE SAFE ON YOUR HEAVENLY PATROL!

Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family, friends and all the members of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office. We were made safer by his service and we all suffer their tragic loss. The family of Captain Stancil deserves our appreciation and gratitude for their sacrifice. No greater love has a man than the will to give his life for another.

I know, like everyone else that worked for you, I miss your smile and how you made it look so easy to solve the problems at hand. I often ask myself, what would Capt. Stancil do? I know you are still watching over "your shift"
from up there. You are gone but never forgotten. I will always miss you. Thank you for the confidence you helped instill in me. God Bless your wife and children.
