It was in England that he met and married his Hilda and together, they returned to St Anthony in 1954, to raise their family. Stan was a family man who worked tirelessly, at times holding down three jobs to provide for his family. He remained interested and involved with his ever expanding family throughout his life.

Well into his eighties, Stan's passion for life saw him engaged in such activities as frolicking on exotic beaches, paying his respects to the fallen in Europe, playing skipper while cruising the water ways of Nova Scotia and playing the role of farm hand in northern Alberta. Closer to home, some of Stan's most memorable times included ski-dooing in the White Hills, ice fishing, trouting, and berry picking. He enjoyed puttering in the garden, canoeing with his grandchildren and a rousing game of cards. Visitation took place at Barrett's Funeral Home, 73 Commonwealth Road, Mt.
