Thoughts of Stanley ~ from cousin Janet (and Ralph), and uncle Don, Our time with Stanley was too seldom, yet he is fondly remembered. Yes, certainly in our memories. We remember his layover visit in California on his way to Vietnam and the very happy note back from there when we sent home made fudge to him and his buddies. And in more recent years the Thanksgiving in Oklahoma & by the pond on the farm. To all those with heavy hearts, know he is right where he knew he would be, in heaven.
~ Don Romero, Janet and Ralph Gaeke in Colorado

First of all...I want to thank everyone here, for coming to pay respects to our Brother Stan.....Secondly, I want to say...... Everyone of you here is Gifted and Special in your own way...... As for my Brother Stan....To many of us, he is an Icon of our times here on earth.....A Genius in his own right as many know......King Daddy Stan....Is what he would say to me & others....You know what?.....He did have bragging rights....No doubt!...He knew it, I knew it.....Others did too......
Oh, how I got tired of hearing it over the years....I'm King Daddy,.... Nobody knows more than I do, NOBODY.......You know what?.....How I wish, I could hear him say it to me now again today.......Cause he did know......We didn't need to go to a library.....Just call Stan.....The Man with the plan....Who seemed could do anything with ease.
Stan was and will always be an Icon of his times....He was a gifted man.....
A man with endless knowledge of how to & why......Soaking up information like a sponge from a very young age of 8 or so.....As he gazed his eyes upon our Grandmothers old time radio that stood 4 feet high.....Buttons you could push, with a large tuning knob, that you could twist, turn, listen to, and wonder how and why.....
From that point on he began absorbing knowledge as easy as 1..2..3..
Morris code by 11 or12 years of age in his radio shack on 27th and Brookline.....
After taking his Ham test ...He soon became K5BAO....K5...Bananas, Apples & Oranges...His call sign for his Ham radio Transmissions...........
From a personal note.....He didn't like it too well when I wanted to play ham operator on his radios.... Flipping switches, Turning radio knobs while he was away......
Again from that point on he wanted to know....How to & Why....it seems like in everything..... Stan became gifted over the years....Leaving high school around 16 because he was bored.....Went to work with my Father Ray.....Making good money Plumbing, construction, etc, over the years......Stan became the man we all know with a knowledge base of extreme......Most of us, have called on Stan from time to time, to get things done or problems solved.....Acquiring his rightful name...
Stan The Man....Who I... and each one of us.... Will miss much.... each and everyday.......
For public information....There are many times Stan wanted to clone me..... Make another Stan so to speak......As one had suggested to him....That is here in the congregation today. ....Need another Stan....Well that wasn't going to happen ..... Even though he tried..... There would only be one Stan....
We, my Sister and I....have so many memories that we could share.....
And so do many of you.... if you were up here speaking today...Especially from the Pioneer Gang as it was in those days.....Where life was simple in mischief and play.
Let me give you a recent, that was not too long ago....July forth...Stan wanted to have a big bang.....What does he do?.....Takes a black trash bag....Partially fills it with acetylene....with a long fuse.....Places it on the ground 150 feet away..... As we waited for the big bang.....We asked,... is this going to work.....He smiled with a grin and said just wait!....
Boom!.....With a flash....It was loud..... The sheriff shows up later wanting to know who's house blew up.....We just stood there dumb founded....and said we were wondering that too......Point is...It knocked a couple of pictures off the neighbors wall.....Stan was always coming up with something weather it was work or play.....The list goes on.......We all love Stan that's why were here today.....Lets Honor Stan....by sharing moments of his life together as we leave this room today.....
To each of you that is here today...... Thank You......
Stan we will never forget you.....Your, Brother, Sister, Mother, Family & Many Friends..........73's to you Stan. End Of Transmission..... Over & Out!

Stan was remarkable. He took us in like we were his kids. He spent Thanksgiving and Christmas with us in Quartzsite, went shooting with us, and helped us with our little business. He built Cowboy attennas to help the business. We could go on and on. Too much to say here. We will miss him terribly. We all know he's in heaven -- there's no doubt. Sorry we missed the funeral. Love you always Stan!

Whats up King Daddy!!!so many feelings no words can express. You taught me so much throughout the years. what to do...what not to do....you know before we had computers we had you stan.and if i needed to fix something i couldnt just Google it or go on you tube...I would go to you for advice or a solution....and leave feeling confident knowing that i was about to kick its butt because you would not not only tell me the answer but give me even more routes to take if it didnt work.......It always worked!!! HUH,HUH...Nobody knows more than you stan Nobody!!! You are one of the most influental people in my life and I will carry your LEGACY. Thank you for everything stan.I will be thinking of you when I get to those mounains in Northern Arizona or visit Munds Park were we camped together...HUH...Ya.. Forever in my heart...Your #1 Fan Ran the man...

Stanley as our Bigger Brother to our smaller gang you will truly be remebered for that. Thanks for the mischief lessons. I know now you won't be far but, I think you may be a bit busy. Our world needs much help and I know your genious will be warmly received. To the Family and Friends Stanley will never be far. I think he believes, as I, we were promised Everlasting Life. I, with you, will cry. But this is our tears and our sadness. Stan the Man , Keep On Rockin, and Keep On Smilin'. Love and Peace Profound All...Tommy

See Ya Later!
Stanley, you'll always be part of the happier memories of my life. Our neighborhood, the"Pioneer Gang", quirky humor and 'secret'language brings a smile to my face, as I write this. By the Grace of our Lord, in His Son, Jesus Christ, I'll see you again someday, old friend.

While tears seem to be the truest expression of emotion in a time like this, we must remember to also smile because Stan believed life was about having a good time because life was too short to live it any other way. Very few people were, and are, as loved and cherished as Stan.

He was man that when you met him, you did not forget him, and you did not leave without a laugh and a smile.

What I remember most about Stan aside from his vibrant and outgoing personality is the many times he took Randy and I with him to building tear down sites. He'd hand us sledgehammers and tell us to "alright boys, get busy tearing her down" and Randy and I would get busy putting holes in walls. This is a great memory because what boy doesn't find joy in swinging a sledgehammer and putting holes in walls?

Stan, you'll be truly missed.
Love Always,
Josh

Stan the Man…
There are so many things I could say. Memories I could share, feelings I could express, but it would be a book. To simplify things you are a HERO to all, plumber by trade and let's not forget to mention He who knew all. LOL
You thought I never listened through our talks and drinks we shared, but really I did. A lot you said and expressed was so true and on point. That's why I always told you you're right and I understand and I understood. I so enjoyed being out at dads and hanging out with you. I enjoyed breaking a sweat with you, having a drink with and laughing. Just wish you would have hung out longer when I was there. Every time you went to sleep or I went home I thought to myself and April, I wish he would have hung out longer…
I love you and miss you already. Please watch over us all in our journey.
All our love and prayers be with you. Mark

BROKEN CHAIN, ........WE LITTLE KNEW THAT EVENING THAT GOD WAS GOING TO CALL YOUR NAME. IN LIFE WE LOVED YOU DEARLY, IN DEATH WE DO THE SAME. IT BROKE OUR HEARTS TO LOOSE YOU, YOU DID NOT GO ALONE; FOR PART OF US WENT WITH YOU, THE DAY GOD CALLED YOU HOME. YOU LEFT US PEACEFUL MEMORIES, YOUR LOVE IS STILL OUR GUIDE, AND THOUGH WE CANNOT SEE YOU, YOU ARE ALWAYS AT OUR SIDE. OUR FAMILY CHAIN IS BROKEN, AND NOTHING SEEMS THE SAME, BUT AS GOD CALLS US ONE BY ONE, THE CHAIN WILL LINK AGAIN. WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU STANLEY, GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN. YOUR BROTHER, THOMAS AND DONNA

Many memories come to mind as I think of all the family times we shared. You are special in so many ways. I laugh today when I think back about the time you and Thomas put in the well in on Triple XXX. Remembering how afraid I was to taste the water from the well and Stan kept on me until I gave in. You kept telling me how good the water tasted and clear and pure it was. After a while I gave in and tasted it. YOU were so right! It was the best tasting water I ever had.
I think back about the many nights you stayed up late on your Ham Radio, K5BAO, Bananas, Apples and Oranges talking to people all over the world. After a late night you would enjoy a peanut butter & jelly sandwich with a glass of milk!
One thing is true, the Montgomery men love their camping and fishing. I remember the time Stanley and Billie and Thomas and I drove to Altus Oklahoma to Luger Lake. Stanley and Thomas set up camp while Billie and I started fishing. Billie and I had a blast catching LOTS of fish. The girls tore them up, as the guys would say. You know I bet Stan and Grandpa Ray are fishing right now together and having a time of their life. Who will catch the first and the biggest fish? Huh, Huh?
Stan even went panning for gold and staked his claims. He was so excited when he brought home some gold nuggets. Great pictures and what an awesome experienced you had. Nothing was too hard for Stan.
Stan loved listing to Hal Lindsey and Jack Van Impe. Their interpretation of the bible always got him excited and talking about the end times and the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
One thing I will NEVER forget is how you always said, HUH, HUH, you know what I mean huh. ?
The most important thing is that Stan knew Jesus and one day we that know Jesus will be together once again. So until that day Stan, I will see you later!
I am thankful for all the wonderful memories you gave me and for being in my life.
You were a great brother in law, uncle to my son's and friend!

Stan will be missed by so many. His presence on the amateur radio bands was appreciated by his fellow hams.

Gayle and Family:
We are so sorry for your loss. May God's hand be upon you and your Mother and brother, Tom during this time.
You are always in our prayers. We love you dearly.
Psalm 116:15
We rightly grieve when a loved one dies, but God has a very different reaction: He rejoices that another one of His children has entered His eternal presence. Death is not the end, but a new beginning.
