He loved golf, sinking seven holes-in-one during his career. He also enjoyed wood-working, playing cards- especially poker, shaking the dice and cribbage. Stan was an easygoing man with a wonderful sense of humor as well as a gentle, loving husband, father and grandfather. He was a teacher at heart and enjoyed teaching his children new things in a hands-on manner. Stan will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
