Stan was my sister’s brother-in-law. As such, we often saw each other when I visited her on weekends from Ball State where I was a student. What a JOY he was as we laughed and joked our way through those earlier times.
Indeed, the world has lost a very special person who did no harm, who contributed his artistic talents, and who served as a positive example of all that we should be to humanity.
He will be missed. God speed him on his way to peace, comfort, and joy.

I am so saddened to hear the news of Stan's passing, For a period of time I did some drapery installing for him. I enjoyed his sense of humor and his constant joyous outlook on life.
Stan was very good at his designing trade? Jim Zeigler

Stan will be missed. As neighbors, we spent many days and evenings together on the front porches sharing stories. One thing I miss the most is putting our Christmas lights out at the same time. I would finish, go into my house only to look out at midnight and see Stan still hard at work putting each light meticulously on each limb of his trees. He began calling me Christmas Sally and he called me that name with a snicker on his face up until the end! Until we meet again, rest in peace my dear friend.
