Stan liked to fish and camp. He loved to travel as well. Driving over the road gave him that opportunity. During the summer months he would take his family with him. They would see the country, stopping along the way to visit with family and friends.

    I am so glad to be able to read this. Stanley was able to spread joy through a lot of lives as he and his family travelled the highways and byways sharing his love of life. He did all he could in this world, his body was tired. He is resting now and smiling down on those he loved, and those that loved him. Thank you for all joy you gave to others.
