I am so sorry for the passing of Stan. Stan was a integral part of my life, he tought me the values that allowed me to succeed in business. I learned so much from him, from firefighting to being an honest business person. I am not able to make Stan's funeral, although I will be thinking of him. Please except my dearest condolence's.

Our condolences to the family. My fragile health will prevent us from attending a service for Stan. Please know that you are all in our thoughts. Stan was a unique man and "Stan the Glass Man" fit him well! I enjoyed knowing and working with him. Having worked on that '53 Chevy, I remember his love for it very well. Stan will certainly be missed but fondly remembered. May God grant you all peace and strength for the days ahead.
