April 14, 1925 – July 27, 2014
Stan passed away quietly on July 27, 2014 at Vancouver General Hospital. Predeceased by brother Bruno "Bruce" and sisters Lucy and Irene. Stan was much loved and will be dearly missed by his wife Ellen "Ellenor" of 62 years, daughter Tracey and treasured granddaughters – Madison and Carlin. He also leaves behind nieces and nephews. Stan will be remembered as a hard worker, loving his home, and a family man who eagerly looked forward to the opportunity to work in his garden and harvest his prized tomatoes which he was always eager to share. He will be remembered as a quiet, hardworking and generous man, loved by his family and well-liked by all those who knew him. A very special thank you to Janice Ayach, the Palliative Care Team at VGH and especially to Vivian for her gentle care and compassion. Thank you to Dr. Levy and Dr. Tim Sukalak. Adios "Smokey". Three kisses. As per Stan's wishes, no funeral services will be held. No flowers please. A donation to a charity of your choice would be appreciated. A Family gathering will take place at a later date.
