So profoundly saddened to learn of Stan’s passing. A gentleman through and through. We first met Stan in 1978, actually through common acquaintance with his lovely mom in Kentucky. Stan represented us in practice and personal matters for over 35 or so years. Funny how our professional relationship became so personal, as he and Sara were included in our family lifecycle events as he took such a special interest in our growing up, as he did in his pride of raising his family.....never missing an opportunity to tell us how Sara and his kids were doing, and inquiring about our kids and my parents who he had met. A finer friend, confidant, advisor, attorney and caregiver, one will never find and our hearts are heavy with his loss. May his memory always be a blessing for you, his loving legacy as it will remain in our hearts forever. Joel and Ellen Golub.

Stan Graber and I (wife) knew your father from our time at VU. When our first son was born in Washington, DC, your father drew up our first will. What wonderful parents and grandparents they must have been, Sara Graber

We were very saddened to hear that Stan has passed on. We were clients of his and became family friends. We have such fond memories of Stan and Sara- from Sunday brunches, Reds games, or our children’s birthday parties; they will both be missed by us for years to come. May his soul Rest In Peace.
