Stan will be remembered as a quiet man. His laid back demeanor made you think he wasnt listening. Wrong. He knew exactly what was said. His favorite summer activity was gardening. He had a knack for creating calm, natural spaces. He never used gloves because he liked to feel the earth in his bare hands. Stan continued to lovingly care for his yard up until three weeks before his death. We will always remember him for his wisdom, his gentle nature and witty sense of humor.
