    I was so sad to hear about Uncle Stan. I am thrilled that we managed to get a visit in with him at Margie’s house when we came through Calgary a couple of summers ago.
    He was so full of life and joy … that’s how I’ve always thought of him and he didn’t lose that wonderful attitude over time.
    We all have such great memories of him and your Mom back when we were kids.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you …he will be missed!

    Dear Doug, Diane and Russ,
    We have wonderful memories of your Dad’s visit to Victoria 2 years ago when he and cousin Dave came to BC for their road trip. He will be remembered for his quick sense of humour and his warm and engaging personality. He was a true gentleman. Take care and we hope to see you soon,
    Leslie and Larry DeConinck

    Our deepest condolences to the Williams family. Our dad, Dave Tiessen, was a fellow draftsman but also a long-time friend of Stan’s. We were touched by your thoughts when our dad passed away and want you to know that we are thinking of you too.
