Stan was a super great guy. He roomed across the hall from me in Phillips dormatory at UNCG. He was quick to laugh and fun to party with. We had a lot of the same friends. I invited him to my parents beach cottage in May ? 1977 . His van was a great hit with all the kids. A couple other friends were there. We had a great time. I had always wanted to reconnect with him/ sorry i didn't. Love and peace to all his family and friends. We had great fun in year of 76-77 ! love ya, Stan. thanks for the memories.

Memory: Snow days in Boone Hill a/k/a Princeton. The road where he and his family lived I believe was dirt (in the 70s) and we did have fun snow days! Many parties (some at his home and the community center) - I believe he may have been the artist behind the flyers. Praying for much needed solace and comfort during this time. Hold tight to the “fond” memories!

Stan was a dear friend way back in the 1970’s. He was voted the “Most Intellectual” member of our class which was a well deserved honor. I am so sorry we lost touch over the years. I am shocked and saddened by his death.
Prayers for all of his family especially Cheryl and Terry.
