Stanley B. FAIN Jr.

FAIN, Stanley B. Jr. 66, of Tampa, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, Jan. 19, 2014 peacefully after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Albany, NY in 1947 to the late Stanley B. Fain, Sr. and Barbara N. Lambert. He was a class of 1965 graduate from Cobleskill High School. On Aug. 8, 1992, he married his best friend and the love of his life, Wanda S. Fain. He had an adventurous soul, and after graduating high school, he hitchhiked from New York to California. Then, Stanley proudly served his country as an Engineman in the United States Coast Guard from 1967 until 1971. In 1972, he pursued his passion of motorcycles and racing by opening Fain's Cycle Shop in Cobleskill, NY. He thrived as an entrepreneur and traveled throughout the country making his dreams a reality. In 1987, Stanley moved to Tampa, where he entered the automotive industry as a financial manager. His incredibly vivid stories of life experiences and genealogy touched the lives of friends and family alike. A close friend once told Stanley that if someone asked him for the time, Stanley would instead tell them how to make a watch. He was preceded in death by his brother, Bruce Fain. He is survived by his loving wife, Wanda S. Fain; son, Bryan Fain and daughter-in-law Sherry; daughter, Tiffany Fain; stepson, Jeffery Young and daughter-in-law, Kristina; stepdaughter, Susan Busciglio; siblings, Annie Hornauer, Christopher Fain, Raymond Lambert, Adrianne Branham, Pollyanna Feazel, Bernadette Fain, and Dale Fain; 6 grandchildren, countless nieces, nephews, and friends, as well as his furry companion, Jake.
