Skye and I were acquaintances in New York City. We met online in 2007. I visited him on occasion and he visited me once. Our last meeting was in a restaurant in the West Village of Manhattan. I believe he was a sensitive, tender-hearted, and perceptive human being. He provided a job reference for me in 2009 and I remember suggesting to him at that time he should move to CA. We were to meet shortly before his move to CA in 2014 but a snow storm got in the way. We lost touch but I’ve often thought of him and wished we had met under different circumstances. Today I thought to send him a post card and let him know I’m soon to graduate with a Master of Divinity as I know he’d have been happy for me. So I am shocked to find he has passed. Still, I truly believe he found life more enjoyable in CA than NYC. My sincerest condolences go out to Skye’s family and friends. And my prayers are with his spirit, his spirit set free.

I worked with Skye in CA, and he was a good, caring man and veterinarian. He spent time with Residents and Interns, and was very dedicated to helping them succeed. He did a lot of charity, and was always reminding us that we could do better. I am saddened to hear of his passing. May he finally rest in peace, and be surrounded by light and love.

I went to college w/Skye at KU. He was one of the funniest people I've ever met. Incredibly smart, hard-working and very loyal. I'll miss you Skyeler. Gone way too soon... Love you buddy

Dr. Skye Stanley was the Fifth Avenue vet I saw with my beloved pet. He was professional, friendly and KIND. For one Christmas my pet gave him a blue bow-tie as Dr. Stanley loved bow-ties. Rest in Peace, Dr. Stanley and you touched my life in a special way. Linda Ann Gray

Skye was my veterinary school classmate and friend. I will always remember his gentle and soft spoken nature. After graduation, he went on to accomplish so much more than most of us. His dedication to our profession was admirable. He spent an additional 4 years advancing his training, and becoming a boarded specialist. A testament to his determination and intelligence. I was shocked to hear of Skye’s passing. It is a loss on many levels and hard to comprehend. My deepest condolences to his mother and siblings. I know that Skye has found peace. I pray for his family.
