We have some good memories of uncle Stanley coming to Canada and visiting my parents at the old homestead in St Paul. Uncle Stanley was very kind, had a great sense of humor and of course liked to tease people. On behalf of Lilianne and family our heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and your families. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Rest in peace uncle Stanley- Repose en paix mon oncle Stanley

Love sister Lilianne, cousins Jackie, Nicole, Roland, Bernard and Marcel..xox

I loved Stan as a father and had much respect for him. He held a special place in my life. He always had a great sense of humor and cared for everyone. He will truly be missed by all who knew him. Rest in peace Stan. My condolences to the whole family.

Many fond memories of Uncle Stanley a/k/a my godfather. Spending the summers in Lodi playing in the pool. All the teasing he took from us girls about his accent especially "tic" and "tin". Recording him while he was sleeping and playing back his snoring to him after he insisted he didn't snore. His green thumb and all the huge Rhubarb he would grow in the backyard. The family gatherings to play cards. The big green car with push buttons that he let my sister drive even after she just crashed my dad's car into the bridge in Massachusetts! Just a great guy!! Give my dad a big hug from us.

Just Remember --

Why Worry? In life there are only two things to worry about:
Whether you are well,
or whether you are sick.

Now if you are well,
You have nothing to worry about.

And if you are sick,
You only have two things to worry about:
Whether you get better,
or whether you die.

If you get better,
You have nothing to worry about.

And if you die,
You only have two things to worry about:
Whether you go to heaven,
or whether you go to hell Now if you go to heaven,
You have nothing to worry about.
And if you go to hell, You’ll be too busy shaking hands with Your friends and relatives,
that you won't have time to worry.
So Why Worry?

Love you Uncle Stanley - Rest in Peace!!

My Deepest Sympathy to the family.

My fondest memory of him, was the teasing he would do to all of us when we were together..
I remember spending a summer at their house with a pool, lots of love and laughter.
Love cousin Rose.. xoxo
Rest in Peace, Mon Oncle Stanley.

I am so grateful and blessed to have had my dad in my life for 61 years. Dad came from very humble beginnings, raised on a farm with 12 siblings in Canada. He moved to America in his 20s, was drafted into the US Army, served his new country proudly, and became a US citizen. He married "Margie," the love of his life on July 1, 1950, after dating only a few months. We were lucky enough to be able to celebrate Mom and Dad's 60th wedding anniversary in 2010, before we lost mom to an illness several months later. Dad worked hard to raise four daughters, send them to private school, live a good life, and be supportive of his family, including his son-in-laws, five grandchildren and two great granddaughters. In times of better health, he enjoyed making a few wagers on horses at the racetrack and taking a ride to Atlantic City to play blackjack for a few hours...and he was fairly lucky. He was also able to enjoy several World Series championships won by his beloved Boston Red Sox during his lifetime. And, of course being from Canada, he was an avid NHL fan, with a particular fondness for the Montreal Canadiens, followed by the New Jersey Devils. Dad turned 95 years old last month...still it's hard to say goodbye. Miss you, love you Dad. Always the baby of the family, Yvonne

Did not know uncle Stanley that well due to the fact that we are in Canada.... however as a kid I always thought he was a "cool" uncle with the white shoes and he had that swagger and liked to tease. Last time I saw him was probably 10 years ago maybe more ... a business trip to Jersey I made a dash for Toms River and got to see Corrine, Leo, Kay, Stanley, Margie. Your parents certainly made me feel welcomed ....like the typical Cormiers. Looking at these pictures, can't get over how much he looked like dad in his final years. RIP uncle Stan; deepest sympathies to all of you!
