I knew Stanley only briefly but he was a most memorable man - a good man.
He was respected by everyone, and his Pitney Bowes business
career was filled with achievement.
He was a major builder of the company over many years.

We will have a Mass said for him & pray that he is at peace.

To Rae, Donna, Jean and Brenda,

We will always remember Stan as the man whose power switch was always on. He never seemed to shy away from any one or any thing. Always ready to play golf or cards, or just give us kids a bit of fun. He was a perfect complement to his wife, and his kids just followed their lead. Such an energetic family.

We know you will miss him, as will everyone who knew him. I do trust he is in a better place, and that we can expect that at some point, he will still try and will beat us at cards.

Our prayers are with you and your children.

The Danny Puhr family.

So sorry to hear this. He was another one of the Good Guys. I worked with PB over 33 years. Stan was a class act.

Dear Rae Ann, Girls and family. We are so saddened to hear the news especially since we just chatted with you and Stanley a few weeks ago. I remember our parting words when we asked Stanley what he was going to do after we hung up and he said "Make a Tee Time". Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love, Pam & Ted Clemens (Virginia Beach)
