Dear Luana and family,
We are so very sorry to read of Stan's passing.
I have many fond memories of being in IPMS with Stan during the 70s and 80s. I always enjoyed talking modeling with him, and catching up and visiting with him at the local hobby shows. He will be missed.
All our love and prayers,
Roger & Marge Griemsmann

I was a next door neighbor of Stanley on Gate Street and I remember how much he loved building the most realistic model airplanes in had ever seen . I pray,"Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.” – Deacon George Mills- Corpus Christi Church, Shiloh Il.
