On April 23, 2024, Ferrill D. Standage, age 88, moved from his home in Kingsland, Texas, to his heavenly home with His Lord and Savior, Jesus.

Ferrill Standage was born August 1, 1935, in Russell County, Kansas, to John and Virginia (Rolfs) Standage.

He is survived by his wife, Shirley, of the home; his two children, daughter Vicki Gillis of Loveland, Colorado, and son Jon Standage of Fort Collins, Colorado; and his grandson, Lucas Gillis of Loveland, Colorado. 

He was preceded in death by his mother, Virginia; his father, John; and his brother, Rolf Standage.

Mr. Standage always held a special place in his heart for youth and children. He was a lifelong educator who began teaching in Holyrood, Kansas, in 1959. He later moved to Fort Collins, Colorado, where he continued his career as an elementary educator. He completed his 36-year career as the elementary and middle school principal in Victoria, Kansas, where he retired in 1995.
