  Mr. SESSIONS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the life of fallen 
Dallas firefighter Stanley Allen Wilson.
   Stanley worked selflessly alongside his fellow firefighters and was 
an exemplary example of steadfast commitment to bettering, protecting 
and saving lives. When others run away, the brave men and women who 
serve as our first responders rush in. Stanley Wilson was no different. 
Responding to a massive six alarm fire, he answered the call of duty 
and made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our community safe.
  Stanley, a lifelong native of Dallas, Texas, was a 1979 graduate of 
Lake Highlands High School and attended the University of Texas. As a 
28-year veteran of the Dallas Fire Department, Stanley served proudly 
at Dallas Fire Station #53 in Lakewood.
  Stanley's life reflected his love for family and community. He was a 
devout Christian, dedicated husband and father, and a true public 
servant. Whether it was serving his church community at Park Cities 
Baptist Church, serving his sons as the quartermaster for Boy Scout 
Troop 890, or serving the City of Dallas as a firefighter, Stanley held 
true to his principles and never wavered in his loyalty to those around 
him.
   Stanley Wilson is survived by his wife of 20 years, Jenny and his 
two sons Noah and Luke.
   I am privileged to honor this fellow Boy Scout Leader and commend 
him for ``leaving his campsite better than he found it.'' Stanley 
Wilson will be greatly missed. May the peace of God be with those he 
loved and sustain them through this hour of sorrow.

                          ____________________
