THAME, Stanley Thomas Stanley Thomas Thame passed away peacefully on December 12, 2018 after a courageous battle with cancer. His greatest inspiration to keep fighting was his wife, Jackie, the love of his life for over 56 years. The "Bay Rat" was born on October 3rd, 1943, in Victoria, BC, and his heart never left James Bay. Stan always believed life was short, and in this last year he made peace with his time here on earth. He was an old school gentleman who will be remembered for his loud voice and a bottle of Lucky in hand. Many had the opportunity to meet him, and few will ever forget him. He loved and played many sports, and always remained a fan. Over the years Stan played competitive baseball, rugby, volleyball, curling, and slo-pitch. Stan joined the Victoria Fire Department in August 1966, and retired as Battalion Chief in August 1999. He always said it was the best job ever, as if he had won the lottery. He adored his firefighter brotherhood and their families. He cherished most, time spent with his three girls Debra (Tim), Trisha, and Leanne (Doug) and was a proud Papa to his grandsons, Mason and Myles. Stan is predeceased by his parents Hazel and Stan Thame. He leaves behind his younger brothers, David (Sylvia), Jack (Patti), and a multitude of family and friends. Our family would like to extend a big thank you for all of the care and support we received through his Family Physician, Dr. L. Lytle, his Oncologist, Dr. Feng, and all the staff at BC Cancer Agency, Palliative Care and Victoria Hospice. A Celebration of Stan's Life will be held on Saturday, January 5,2019 at 1pm at The Victoria Conference Center, 720 Douglas Street, Victoria, BC, with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Victoria Firefighters Charitable Foundation.
