So sorry to learn of Stan’s death. Stan and I worked together for many years in the same office at Westinghouse. Also, remember the fun times we had flounder fishing in Ocean City. May you find peace and comfort in special memories you have of your life with Stan.

Stan was one of the nicest gentlemen we have ever met. We enjoyed his wonderful sense of humor and we admired his love for his family. We lost a great friend to our community, and it will never be the same without Stan's contagious smile. You will be missed my friend - We love you, and share our greatest condolences for your family.

Betty and family, I’m sorry to hear about Stan’s passing. He was a wonderful friend at Westinghouse. We shared an office for four years. Stan was friendly, jovial, and quite interesting. I enjoyed coming to work and talking to him. Even my children enjoyed talking to him when he answered my phone. We will all miss him.
