John Marion Stokley--
A pioneer organization of its type in the Lower Tidewater region, Stokley's Services, Inc., with its predecessors, has had over three decades' experience in the air conditioning and refrigeration contracting field. Its executive head is John Marion Stokley, who incorporated the firm in 1938 and has since served as president.
He is a native of Roseville, Ohio, and was born on February 22, 1901, son of Marion and Daisy (Russell) Stokley. Both parents were born in Perry County, Ohio, in which Roseville is located. Marion Stokley is now retired after a long career as a merchant. He operated a grocery and meat market in Cambridge, Ohio, and still lives there, being ninety years of age at the time of writing. Daisy (Russell) Stokley is also still living, at the age of eighty-three. This couple were the parents of twelve children, of whom nine are living. One is a professor at Notre Dame, another also follows the teaching profession, and another is a publisher.
On April 4, 1921, John Marion Stokley married Freda Irene James, daughter of George and Barbara (Shuttleworth) James. Both of her parents were born in Hocking, Ohio. He died in 1948 at the age of seventy-nine. Mrs. James survives him and makes her home in Pleasant City, Ohio. Mr. and Mrs. Stokley are the parents of two daughters: (1) Marian, who was born on June 20, 1922. On April 16, 1948, she became the wife of Hugh W. Brinkley. They have two children.

The above was written in 1959 and Pop (John)died 3 years later of leukemia. He was the best grandfather and took time to make everyone he met feel special. He loved and was loved by many. I'm very proud to be his 1st grandchild.
