Stuart Standafer drove Greyhound busses for 40 years

He was the driver for many ACHS senior trips to NYC and Washington during the 50s and 60s.

Frank Standafer writes:
The Greyhound driver Hunter (H. Hunter Durham, Esq. -CM) remembers as Stewart was probably my father Stuart Standafer. Greyhound would send a driver from Louisville to drive the routes when the regular drivers had their days off. Our family moved to Columbia 1954 when Mr. Morgan and another driver retired. Many of your readers may remember my father as the driver of their Adair High School senior trips to New York and Washington in the 50's and 60's. Our family moved to Lexington in 1963 when Greyhound made operational changes to the Columbia routes. He enjoyed his work and especially the people he would meet. He retired with 40 years of service in the 80's from Greyhound. He continued driving in retirement for Bluegrass Charters and Tours for several more years.

Thanks. Wonderful to hear from one of the all-time great Jamestown Hill boys, Frank(ie) Standafer. What a warm, wonderful contribution the Standafer family made while residents in Columbia! Miss them. The Standafer home on Heskamp ST still stands, and is now owned by Michael Stephens. -EW
