    Joy and I express our deepest condolences to the family and friends. Stan was a true gentleman. I worked with Stan for a lot of years and no matter what I needed he would always smile and tell me it would be taken care of. Set up, tear down, maintenance were always delivered on time as promised. I appreciated how quick he was with a smile and a pat on the back. He loved the students he worked with. He was a dedicated coach and was loved and respected by his wrestlers and the students at JHS. Jamestown has lost a really good soul. I will miss him and know he will have an honored place in heaven. Rest in peace.
    Thank you.

    So sorry for your loss Donna and family. Stan always seemed bigger than life to me. As his neighbor for 20 years he was always so helpful with anything needed whether it was a carpentry job or cottage problem. Dave and I really enjoyed talking with him also. He will be greatly missed.
