Bishop Standridge’s love for ministry continued as he traveled around singing gospel music, most recently with The Cribbs. He was a member of Outland Church of God.

Bishop Standridge enjoyed ice cream and the smell of a diesel engine, was a jack of all trades, a singer and musician. He was a loving husband, father, son, brother, brother-in-law, pastor, friend and, above all else, a follower of Jesus of Christ who led many people to the Lord.
