GROZINA, Stanley
November 6, 1937-April 29, 2014
After 76 years of a very full life Stanley passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with cancer. He will be greatly missed by his surviving family – his partner of 17 years Alice, his daughter Irene (Randy), his grandchildren Jamie and Chad, and his sisters Maritza and Ivanka. He is also survived by nieces and nephews in Slovenia and a large and loving family in the Philippines. After emigrating from Slovenia in 1956 with $20 to his name, Stan established a successful chrome plating business in Winnipeg. Always up for adventure, he sold that business and went on to own the The Cave Nightclub in Vancouver until it closed in 1981. From then, he settled in False Creek and East Vancouver where he worked as a carpenter, builder, and inventor. Above all, he will be remembered as a gardener, polka partner, chef, and storyteller with a hearty laugh and infectious spirit. Memorial services will be held at Oceanview Funeral Home, 4000 Imperial St. Burnaby, with a viewing on Saturday May 3rd from 7-9pm and a memorial service on Sunday May 4th, from 10-11am. The family asks that donations be made to the BC Cancer Society in lieu of flowers. Condolences may be offered at
