July 24, 1943 – March 16, 2021
Stanley Longstaff, 77, passed away peacefully on March 16, 2021 at the Park Place Seniors home in Fort Langley B.C, surrounded by his family.
Stan was born on July 24, 1943, in New Westminster and lived in White Rock and South Surrey for most of his life. Stan was one of five children born to Harold and Evelyn (Breaks). He was predeceased by his father in 1985 and his mother in 2003.
Stan attended Semiahmoo High School, where he graduated in 1962. He met Linnea Ahlstrom in 1961, and they were married five years later in June 1966. Their daughter, Kim was born in 1969 and son, Trevor in 1972.
Upon graduation, Stan pursued Millworker and Joinery at B.C. Vocational School and spent his working years in construction. Throughout his career, Stan was well-known for his craftsmanship; he was meticulous and detailed in his work. Stan retired in his 60’s to spend his remaining years with his wife, children and grandchildren.
Stan was a generous, devoted, and hardworking man. He spent hours manicuring his yard, working in his shop building cabinets, and helping his friends and family. He loved to spend time playing with his grandchildren and always put his family first. Stan shared his love for camping and the outdoors over many years’ trips to places such as Barkerville, Yellowstone, Winthrop and the Oregon Coast. These are cherished memories for the Longstaff family.
Stan will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 54 years, Linnea (Ahlstrom), children Kim (Bernie) and Trevor (Janine) and four grandchildren, Joella, Nolan, Zoë, and Camryn. He is survived by his siblings, Bob, Lyle, Roy (Thom) and Lori and in-laws Doreen (Fred), Linda, Larry, and Sandy. He will also be remembered by many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
