After a full and eventful life Stanley went to be with the Lord on December 28, 2014. He was halfway to his 90th birthday. Stan is survived by his four children Dan (Shirley), Linda (Steve), Liz (Shawn) and Doug, his wife Margery of 35 years as well as grandchildren Tim (Kristy), Carolyn (Mark), Stephen, Ryan (Shawna), Shane (Ileana), Jennifer (Rose), Mathew (Tanya), Caroline (Dorian), Joshua and Stephanie; and 13 great-grandchildren.
In his retirement years he moved to Sicamous, BC, where he took up wood carving with chain saws and other tools, creating beautiful cedar plaques of fish and birds. He had a home alongside a creek at the edge of a mountain and he spent hours tending his garden creating a park-like environment. It was the envy of all around him. He was also active in the local church and worked on behalf of seniors in the community. In 2002 he returned to Winnipeg to finish his years closer to the majority of his family. He lived in Lions place for 11 years and then one year at Lions Manor Supportive Housing. A memorial service was held on January 8, 2015 at 2:00 pm, at Neil Bardal Funeral Centre, 3030 Notre Dame Ave. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Lions Housing Centres of Winnipeg.
