Stan worked in the forest industry for all his career until early retirement in 1990. Stan’s passion in life was his family and to minister to all people. One of his greatest joys was the Sunday school bus ministry in which he was involved for over 20 years in New Westminster. In his younger days Stan enjoyed playing softball in the church league and floor hockey, especially when playing with the church youth group and later with his grandchildren. All through his adulthood he passionately studied and memorized the bible. Stan truly had an Evangelist’s heart and would share his faith respectfully with anyone who crossed his path. His passion for serving our Lord Jesus Christ was inspiring to all.

Stan loved his family deeply and his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ above all else. He was a wonderful husband, Father, Grandfather and great Grandfather, he cared for and loved his family well.
He will be greatly missed!
