Stan was a quiet and gentle man with a heart of gold who’s greatest blessing was his family. He was a loving Husband and Father and a hands on Poppy. He enjoyed attending activities with his Grandchildren. He was an active Lions member for 25 years and thoroughly enjoyed his meetings, rarely missing one during his service with the club. His greatest passions were sawing logs on his sawmill, fishing, reading, going to the cabin, watching Coronation Street with his wife, playing darts and cards, and talking on the phone. He was happiest on Sundays when all his family gathered around for Sunday Dinner.
On his behalf, the family would like to thank his family doctor, Dr. Govender, and the Doctors and Nurses on 6 East at St. Clare’s Hospital.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
