Stan had a special bond with his best friend and co-worker for many years Jim Young, he always looked forward to his morning coffee and chat with Jim, he really cherished that friendship.
Dad loved camping, his vegetable garden where he always had the best beans, tomatoes & his favourite potatoes and his long car rides with his 9 kids where he would quiz them on the trees and birds.
A man of many hats, his favourite was his cowboy hat and working at the Douglas Lake Ranch, as well as a welding helmet being such an accomplished welder machinist.

Dad, you were such a kind gentle soul, everyone that came into contact with you instantly loved you, heaven has gained a special angel and his name is Stanley. Thank you for all our special memories dad, we love you and will miss you… big hugs and kisses.
