DENOON – William Stanley

August 19, 1925 – September 9, 2010

It is with sadness we announce that Stan Denoon passed away quietly at his home on Thursday, September 9, 2010.

Stanley “Stan” was born on August 19, 1925, in Calgary, the son of George and Sadie (Merriam) Denoon. His father was born in Peterborough, ON and came to Alberta in the late 1880’s to become a pioneer businessman. In 1915, George Denoon Sr., and Vern Parslow started the livestock commission firm of Parslow & Denoon at the Calgary Stockyards. Stan joined the R.C.N.V.R. after high school and remained in the Canadian Service for a short period of time until he joined the firm of Parslow & Denoon. Stan loved the Alberta countryside and the cattle business along with all the people associated with it. Stan also spent twenty-three years with Phyllis helping run “Frontier Candy and Ice Cream” store in Bragg Creek, AB. Stan was a member of the Masonic Order AF and AM (Mother Lodge Renfrew) 32 Degree Mason. As a young man he was active in all sports, including hockey, football and golf. He is a long-standing member of the Calgary Golf and Country Club and always enjoyed playing golf with Phyllis. Stan was an Honourary Lifetime Member of the Calgary Exhibition & Stampede and volunteered his time for many years with the “Courtesy Car Committee”.

Stan is predeceased by his sister Beth and her husband Bert Taylor. Stan is survived by his loving wife of thirty-five years, Phyllis, along with his children from his first marriage to Marjorie (deceased), his son George Denoon (deceased), son Norm Denoon and wife Barb, daughter Judy Denoon and partner Shaun McGrath and Phyllis’ children Pam Joslin and Alan LeBrun, as well as Stan and Phyllis’ grandchildren, Nathan LeBrun and Damon James, Amber (Denoon) Wyatt and husband Jeff, Tyler Denoon, Lisa (Denoon) Samuel and husband Kurt, Karley Denoon, Connor Denoon, Clay Denoon and wife Kimberlee, William McGrath and their six great grandchildren.

  3. Glenda KLINCK (nee MAILER) :

    Sending our Sincerest Sympathy on the passing of Stan Denoon. My memories go back to the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s as my Dad, Dave Mailer conducted cattle business with Parslow & Denoon as well as my husband and myself did business in the 1970’s at the original Calgary Stockyards. I recall many trips to the Sale Ring, the P & D office and shortvisits with Stan. Also our paths crossed at the ice cream shop in Bragg Creek in later years.

    Stan was held in high regard by my late Dad, Dave Mailer as well as ourselves.

    Sincerely,

    George & Glenda (Mailer) Klinck

  4. Dear Phyllis and family,

    I’m sad to hear of Stan’s passing. He was such a great man … such a gentleman … such a kind heart … and a great sense of humor. His smile light up a room and everyone’s heart.

    His great spirit touched many people. Testimony to this is how my friend Joe Gotfryd from Chicago still talks about the party at the Rotary House after the Calgary Stampede Auctioneer Championships. This had to be in about 1997. Stan was in the middle of everything laughing and telling jokes.

    Stan was a true western gentleman.

    My thoughts are with you.

    Sincerely,
    Mike Bracko

  7. Dear Mrs. Denoon.
    Mr. Denoon was a long time friend of my father, John Wells Sr. I have lots of fond memories of the two of them together at the ice cream shop and at my parents’ home. I was fortunate to see Stan again just a few weeks ago at the Bowview Manor adult day program. We reminisced about my dad and he remembered him well. I am so sorry for your loss. Stan and my dad can now catch up as my father passed away in 1995.
    Sincerely,
    John Wells Jr.
