Stan was born at the farm at his parents place in Haywood, MB on December 14, 1933. His greatest loves were his family and music. He was very gifted and able to play many instruments. Throughout the years he played in bands with his brothers Cliff, Garry, nephew Mark, Demers orchestra, John Dietrich and many other musicians too numerous to mention.
He had many hobbies, fishing, watching hockey, Bingo, gardening, playing cards, building furniture and other things with wood. You would always see him walking around from one end of town to the other and talking to people along the way. He was a very friendly person with a big smile on his face and loved telling jokes.
Campbell Soup company was a place he was employed at for 25 years. Many weekends he would play at various places for weddings, socials and old time dances. He also was a carpenter and helped build the houses at Southport and grain elevators in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. In his later years he enjoyed going to Herman Prior and washing dishes.
He will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.
