Stanley Lufkins was born on November 10, 1945, to George and Ida (Goodbird) Lufkins Jr. He was the fifth child out of fourteen children. Stanley was born in Sisseton, SD at the old Indian Health Service.

When Stanley was four years old, he went to live with Kunsi Julia and Uncle little Howard Redday. Kunsi Julia would call him, “Stacky”. There he learned to speak Dakota fluently. When Stanley was about ten years old, he went to school at Wahpeton Indian School.

Stanley met Doris Paul and together they had four children: Stacey, Lisa, Stephanie and Rodney.  Stanley liked to play moccasin, go to casino, go cruising, and telling jokes.

Everybody that knew Stanley, would always walk away with a chuckle or a laugh.  Now, he is giving King Jesus one. He is probably telling some good stories to Grandma Ida, Grandpa George, Sisters Beana, Faya, Mary Jane, Leona, Elverna, Becky; Brothers Narcisse, Rodney, Vernell; Daughter Lisa and Son Stacey. We can’t forget good friend Orson Bernard and many others.

Stanley is survived by a son, a daughter, three sisters, one brother, grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
