My husband met Stan in Germany but we didn’t become friends until we moved to Florida and Patrick AF Base. Stan and his wife along with my husband and I bowled in a league as a team. He was a quiet guy but had his moments when he made us laugh and kept us going.
Rest Peacefully, Stan and know you are Loved and Missed by many.
