Stan Cromlish was born and raised in Belmont, North Carolina. He has always had a fascination with history and historical facts; especially The Great Depression and World War II. Recently he was given the correspondence of his grandfather and grandmother, and those artifacts along with a collection of pictures of them have given him an urge to put to paper the story of the Cromlish and Suggs families. The first book in the series is titled, “The Grandfather I Never Knew: The Early Years ~ 1915 to 1945”, and was released December 5, 2015.
Stan has different hobbies which include fishing, hunting, dog training, and stamp collecting. He has been active in the Belmont Historical Society of Belmont, North Carolina and is currently serving on their board of directors. Growing up, Stan took part in local Optimist Oratorical Contests and was an Eagle Scout in the Belmont First Presbyterian Church Troop 62. Stan has always made it known that he wanted to understand the past to help prepare for the future.
Writing gives Stan an ability to put to paper thoughts and facts from the past that may or may not be well known.
