I am sure Stanley will be missed by loved ones and many friends. I have many found memories of Stanley having grown up in the church of Grace Breheren. My mom always said Stanley could play the panio so well that it would get up and walk across the floor. My mom Pearl especially had a special place in her heart for Stanley. My hope lies in the forgiveness of our sins by the Grace of God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who was sacrificed on the cross for our salvation and that we can all celebrate in heaven when He calls us home. Love and miss you Stanley till we meet again ❤️

My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. When thinking about my memories of Stanley, my thoughts are about the Grace Brethren Church. Stanley was our pianist for the girls group that we had at the church which we went and did competitions. He also was involved in our youth group , many of the meetings were held at our house. I have many great memories of those times we shared growing up learning about God and spending time with wonderful people......Stanley was one of them!

My sympathies to Stan's entire family and friends. I am a part of the East Buffalo Presbyterian Church family where Stan was our pianist and friend. Always soft spoken, thoughtful and he played piano like an angel. He also catered my daughter's baby shower. Many comments were made that day how delicious everything was and how beautifully the food was displayed. He was a man of many qualities, a friend to all and will never be forgotten. Rest in eternal peace Stan....
