RHOADS, Stanley C. Stanley C. Rhoads was born on October 16, 1924, in Summerville, OR., to Charles E. and Ona A. (McKinnis) Rhoads. A brother, Charles soon joined the family. After graduating from high school, Stan thought he wanted to be a farmer and rented some land and started farming. With an interruption to serve in the Navy from 1946 until 1949, Stan farmed until Easter Sunday of 1955 when the family moved to Spokane and he was going to work at Travis Pattern and Foundry. His talents grew and by the time of his retirement, he was well-known for his abilities at the foundry. Stan was known by all of the Model T owners in the northwest for having one of the best looking and best running Model T's in the area. Over the years Stan was active in touring with the Inland Empire Model T Club, the Horseless Carriage Club, the Hassie Club, The Crankers from Lewiston, ID, and the Walla Walla car club. Stan had other interests besides cars. His yard was beautifully kept and his garage was always a place of interest to visit. But Stan also loved to dance. In fact, his last day was spent at an afternoon tea dance. For more information go to www.heritagefunerals.com . Stan is survived by his son, Dennis; half-sister, Margery S. Paddock of Tustin, CA; step-son, Jerry Rice of Eugene, OR; and many friends who will miss him. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, May 17th at 2 PM at Heritage Funeral Home.
