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. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Captain Stancil is a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

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.

POLICEMAN’S 23RD PSALM

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want,
His comforting hand reduces fear to naught;
He makes me walk through streets of crime,
But He gives me courage and peace of mind

He leads me by still waters in the path I trod,
And He says in Romans, I’m a “minister of God,”
He leads me in righteousness as He restores my soul,
For His name’s sake He keeps me whole.

When I walk through death’s valley, right up to the door,
I will fear no evil, for He comforts me more;
For Thou art with me every step of the way,
As thy rod and thy staff protect me each day.

He prepares a table, especially for me,
As I work daily among life’s enemies;
He gives me authority to uphold the law,
And He anoints my position in the midst of it all.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me,
Each day of my life through eternity;
As I long to hear Him say, “Well done…”
When I lay down my life, my badge, and my gun.

The policeman stood and faced his God,which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman. How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my church have you been true?
The policeman squared his shoulders and said.
"No, I guess I ain't because those of us who carry a badge can't always be a Saint."
I've had to work most Sundays
and at times my talk is rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny that wasn't mine to keep...
though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help
though at times I shook with fear,
and sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here.
They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much, but if you don't...I'll understand"
There was a silence all around the throne where the Saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman.
You've borne you burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets.
You've done your time in Hell"

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003).

We all grieve over the lives lost in the line of duty. I hope you can find some comfort knowing that there are countless prayers that go out for your family.

These are senseless tragedies that never seem to stop. God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....

CAPTAIN,


I JUST WANTED TO TAKE THIS TIME TO TELL EVERYONE WHAT A GREAT PERSON YOU WERE. AND TO SHARE HOW SO MANY OF US FEEL NOW THAT YOU ARE WITH THE LORD. WE WILL NOT EVER FORGET YOU. HERE AT THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE I STILL HEAR ONLY GOOD THINGS ABOUT YOU. WE ALSO MISS YOUR FRIENDSHIP AND LEADERSHIP.


I THINK OF YOU OFTEN AND REFLECT ON HOW WE USE TO WORK TOGETHER ON AND OFF-DUTY. YOU WERE A TRUE FRIEND AND I WISH I COULD JUST CALL YOU SOMETIMES AND SAY "WHATS UP". I KNOW YOU ARE GONE BUT YOU WILL ALWAY BE WITH US NOW AND FOREVER. WE HOLD YOUR NAME AND MEMORY IN THE HIGHEST REGARDS. TO YOUR WIFE AND CHILDREN WE LOVE YOU ALL AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A PART OF FAMILY.




MAY GOD BLESS


CAPTAIN A. STANCIL AND FAMILY

Deputy Sheriff (FTO)

Captain Stancil you are very missed. It seems like yesterday that I would come into work and see your smiling face. I have a picture of you in my police car and look at it every day to remind me how relentless this world can be. God bless you.
