"To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield" - Alfred Lord Tennyson Stanley Marquiss was a Renaissance man, a seeker, and a visionary, within innovating and ambitious ideas about how to expand our relationship with our environment. He sought to transform our perception and our relationship with light, sound and travel through his development of panel speakers for homes, churches, and auditoriums, noise reduction speakers for freeways, electric wind turbines, and electric vehicle improvements. Stanley"s corporations hold many U.S. and worldwide patents in the electronic industry that will continue to inspire others to make further improvements in these fields. Stanley made friends easily, and was an interesting person to know. He was equally comfortable with the madcap antics of the Marx Brothers films, the profundity of Shakespeare, and the creative genius of Edison. Stanley was also a master of the English language and enjoyed inventing and introducing new words into the vocabulary. He enlivened many discussions with family and friends with his creative word play. Stanley was born on November 23, 1943 in Decatur, Illinois, and spent his early childhood in a small farming community in Arthur, Illinois. Stanley liked to reminisce about watching his father build the new family home, gleaning field corn from nearby fields, and exploring the nearby cemetery with his sisters, Sandy and Carolyn. In 1951 the family moved to Sacramento, CA for better opportunities in employment and education. Stanley graduated from El Camino High School in Sacramento, CA in 1961.
