Nov. 25, 1927 – Feb. 10, 2015
Stan was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Nov. 25, 1927. His family moved from Winnipeg to Shelley B.C. before moving to Salmon Valley near Prince George.
Stan was raised on the Shields’ homestead until June 26, 1948, at that time he married Louise Holt and later had four children: Jo-Anne (Tony), Ted (Jessie), Bonnie (Gary) and Ron.
From there they all moved to Babine Lake where he was a sawyer for portable sawmills for a number of years. Stan and Louise then lived in Kamloops for a short time before making a move to the Chasm for Stan’s job.
Stan worked hard, hand-loading boxcars for the Clinton Sawmill and he and Louise had two more children at that time: Susan (Reg) and Karen (Brent). After the Clinton Sawmill shut down, Stan started work at Weldwood in 100 Mile House and moved to Lac La Hache until he retired at the age of 60.
After Stan’s retirement he and Louise moved to the 108 Mile Ranch until Louise passed away in February of 2005. He then spent his remaining years at Carefree Manor and Fischer Place.
Stan LOVED to dance and was known to dance up a storm and took every opportunity to do so.
“He just loved to dance”. He also spent many days at the Legion socializing. His favourite saying was, “Shake the hand that shook the world”.
Stan passed away peacefully at Fischer Place leaving behind his six children, fifteen grandchildren, thirty great-grandchildren and four great-great grandchildren. Stan loved all his family and friends.
