Stanley enjoyed life and loved to laugh. His hobbies included a love of photography, computers, and travel exploring places such as Egypt, Argentina and China. His family was a very important part of his life. After growing up a city boy in NYC, he moved to the small shore town of Point Pleasant, NJ to raise his family. Life led him to have many varied experiences such as owning Van's Bait, Tackle and Bicycle store. He was a man who never shied away from challenges and this took him down many paths including beginning his own consulting firm. More than anything, Stan was a generous man who had a big heart and enjoyed being social. His many friends will miss him greatly.
