I couldn’t have had a better brother-in-law. From the first time we met he accepted me as a brother and told me so many times. He was always smiling and hospitable when we visited him and Barbara. When he came to our house, he was always so willing to help with whatever we had to do. A smart guy with lots of good and helpful ideas around the house. I will miss our times together, interesting talks and, especially, his expressions of love for Dianne and me.

We met Stan a few years back at the coffee bar at Willow Bend church. He was always so friendly with a smile on his face and an encouraging word for everyone. If you were sick or in need of prayer, Stan was your man and he would not stop until you were healed. We sure will miss him

I remember meeting you in a Bible study group at Harwood with our friend Grace. Then we started attending Harwood. That's where we meet Stan. I remember him being a lovely christian man and very knowledgable about the Bible. He was such a delight to listen to in Rod's Bible class. God bless you my sweet friend. Our prayers are with you as you and your family morn Stan's passing

Barbara, as you know, Stan and I worked together at Enterprise Rent-a-Car...I worked the front desk as Receptionist so would get to meet each prospective employee...after chatting with the person for a few minutes, I would go to the Personnel Manager and tell them the person was here...he would always ask my opinion as to whether I thought we should hire the person, LOL! When Stan came in we had such a wonderful conversation about he and his “beautiful wife”...I loved the fact of how he loved you! I, of course, recommended him to Personnel, and he was hired...we remained friends during his tenure there and afterwards, and I was fortunate to meet that “beautiful wife” of his! What a beautiful couple you made! Hugs and prayers go out to you!

I recall visiting him with my family and him being the always gracious host, making sure we had everything we needed and that we always had a great time. I remember my baby sister, Marianna, washing vehicles with him when she was little, her wearing a baseball cap to match him. I remember his hugs that engulfed you and made you feel safe and loved.
I remember sitting with my grandmother, my family and Uncle Stan and just being mesmerized and listening to him talk. Eager to see what he had to say next and always astounded by the way he carried himself and spoke so thoughtfully and purposefully.
When I think of the word “strength”, I picture Uncle Stan. He was the epitome of strength, had a gift of encouragement and was and forevermore will be my hero.

When asked to recall memories about Uncle Stan, I smile. I smile because I am reminded of the man he was and forever will be in my mind.
Uncle Stan was one that could silence a room full of people because they all wanted to hear what he had to say. He had a laugh that was contagious, a smile that was infectious, a demeanor and calmness that was envied, and a style that was impeccable.
Every time we visited with Uncle Stan, his first question to me would be, “Well, Karen, are you married, yet?” As a little girl, I would giggle at his question but when I did get married, he was there, looking dapper and handsome, supporting me.
During times when things were not going as I had dreamed and planned that they would, a simple phone call or text message from him to encourage me and remind me that he loved me would keep me going. And he would tell me, “There is a light at the end of tunnel.”. I would keep going and keep trying, remembering his words. He loved God and made sure to let me know he was praying for us constantly.
Watching him and Mom and seeing the sibling bond they had are some of the most precious memories about him. They always had such a great love and respect for each other that siblings long for and not even death can deter. When they were together or when talked on the phone, it was almost as if no time had passed since the last time they were together and they picked up right where they had last left off.

Though no longer of this earth, Stan will be forever remembered by those he loved. I will remember his wonderful, witty sense of humor and his contagious laugh. I will marvel at his ability to fix just about anything. I will often ponder the many heartfelt, deep discussions we had about life.
Forever in our hearts,
Rest in peace dear Stan.

To dear Stan, our beloved friend,
Always a kind, forthright, and loving Christian, Stan captured the Christian spirit of faithful service to mankind in many ways.
A ‘tell it like it is’ man, Stan let you know how he believed and felt - a welcome and refreshing change from the ‘silent majority’. Stan upheld his high ideals. He always greeted me with a smile and a kind word.
When asked, he shared his hard won wisdom with his many friends. His allegiance to our country never failed. Stan’s brave service in the Air Force showcased his love of the principals and rights he held as a proud citizen of the United States.
Stan’s love and loyalty to his wife, Barbara, shines in our memories even as he now resides in Heaven. We miss him.

Stan was my neighbor and the best one l could have hoped to have. If I ever needed help he would be there ASAP. He was a true
Christian and loved the Lord and showed it daily. I will certainly be missing the
friendship we had.
