Our deepest sympathies. Stan was a loving family friend and male role model to my children & I. We lived nearby and spent many holidays together with him and Barb. I spent an extended visit with Stan & Barb in Florida in June. I was present when Stan passed away & I reiterated in his ear the love and admiration I had for him. He was consistently supportive during my four year cancer battle, often putting others before himself. I am so grateful to have known such a good man. We will miss him terrible. God’s Blessings to all of you.
