Stan was born on October 4, 1935 in St. John, NB. He attended the University of New Brunswick where he excelled in the sports of football, basketball, water polo, and soccer. During the summer breaks, Stan was a pilot with the R.C.A.F. and wandered the wilds of northern Canada working for Montreal Engineering. He received his BSc. in Civil Engineering in 1958. During his extensive travels as an engineer, he met and married his wife Lil on May 26, 1962 in Kirkland Lake, ON.
