Stanley was married four times: to Libby Hill Blake, a teacher, from 1970 to 1990, when they divorced; to Mary McCrone, a television producer, for eight years until they divorced in about 2000; to Denise Skinner, a former marketing staffer, from 2002 until her death of cancer in 2011; and to her best friend, Ilsa Glanzberg, an elementary school instructional aide, from 2017 until his death in 2021. He had twin daughters, Anna and Sarah, born in 1974, and five grandchildren.
