SLOCOMB, Ala. (WDHN) — A family is remembering the life of a loved one who passed away in a deadly car crash in Geneva County.

Brenton Stanley and his brother were going on a drive after celebrating his sister’s birthday on Cotton Box Road in Slocomb and then he lost control of his truck.

“Came in and said, ‘Momma I’m going to be right back,'” said Brenton Stanley’s mom, Dawn Wissinger. “I said, ‘Ok buddy, be careful.’ Then he said, ‘Always. Love you.’ Then I said, ‘I love you too.'”

The wreck happened just after 3 a.m. on Saturday. Stanley wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.

“He had overcorrected it and it rolled,” Wissinger said. “When it was rolling he(Stanley) was ejected from the driver’s side out the back window of the truck.”

Stanley was known by his family as the life of the party.

He was also the one to stand in the middle of any drama between friends.

“Brenton would keep the peace. He really did,” Wissinger said. “Like that was just the type of kid he was. He was just a great kid.”

Stanley and his family grew up in Orlando.

Four years ago, they relocated to Slocomb, where Stanley helped at his parent’s business selling tires.

Stanley has two siblings who were close in age. Wissinger says they were best friends and Stanley kept the family smiling.

“He was just a great person. He was my rock,” Wissinger said. “You know, he kept us laughing all the time and now it is just so quiet here without him.”

“He was never in trouble. He was a great kid, who grew up to be an amazing young man,” Wissinger said. “That was just taken too soon.”

The family has also posted a GoFundMe to honor Brenton.
