So sorry to hear of Stans passing. He and sister Helen were dear friends of my dad, Bill Rolcik from Cle Elum. I remember them coming to visit many times, especially when they were camping at Mountain River Trails along the Yakima River. They love my dads accordion and they always had a ball. I remember him with a smile, and maybe a beer in his hand? . My dad passed away in 1982, but Ive never forgotten Stan and Helen. Blessings to his family.
Love from Patti Rolcik Woodruff and also my mom, Karen Rolcik
