Stan was born in Huddersfield, England and moved to Canada in 1967. He lived in Fergus, Ontario until he moved to Calgary, Alberta in 1993. He worked as a production manager for most of his life. Stan will be forever remembered for his unconditional love of his family, for his huge love of soccer as a player, passionate coach and supporter of Huddersfield Town, and for his love of movies, trivia, music and theatre. Stan’s patience, mannerism, and nurturing way he touched the lives of many people, while he always encouraged everyone to see the brighter side of life. Stan’s favorite activity was spending time with his family and he felt “time was more valuable than money”. He loved holidays spent at locations by the water or just walks in the parks and pathways in the outdoors.
