Stanley was such a special man. I met him through my husband and shared many great times with him & many of his other friends. Stan enjoyed life & had a personality that wouldn't quit. For a period of time Stan sold used cars & we bought several through him. True to form, when transporting cars Stan wanted the driver of the car following him to stay close behind & not allow a large gap between cars. I'll never forget how difficult it was to follow him on the highway & my husband & I would kid about staying close & not making Stanley mad!
Stan was a kind man who would pay for kids to play pool & other games when he was at a bowling alley or an arcade. His mother relied on him for a number of things as she got older & he was always there to help her.

People relied on Stanley to listen to them when they had problems & knew he would not ever reveal anything personal. He had a good way of asking for things; For example If he wanted to have a private conversation he would say "would it make you too mad if I talked to your husband alone?" When someone was ill or in a crisis Stanley would appear to help however he could.

I could say lots more but these are a few of the memories I have of Stanley which hopefully express some of his character traits which made him so special. I will miss him so much & will always stay close to his wonderful wife Dee.

So very sorry to learn of Stan’s passing. Our sympathy to Toot and family. Good memories of fishing and hunting together! Biking in the UP was great fun.
