He worked many years in construction, and retired from Michelin Tires in 1990. He spent his retirement spoiling his grandchildren, doing yard work, travelling, and taking care of and enjoying his property on “The River”, lovingly referred to by some as Stan’s RV, for which he was the warden.
He is survived by his daughters Dawn Marie (Mark) Davies of Ottawa and June (Maurice) of Sable River, his sister Faye (John) Bower of Antigonish, his grandchildren Jeremy (Ashley) Martin of Halifax, Shawn Davies of Ottawa and Jared & Linden Martin of Sable River.  
He is predeceased by his wife Shirley (Verge) and son Gary.

Dawn Marie & June, we are so sorry to hear about your Dad. Keep your memories near & dear. We’re thinking of you and your families.

Condolence from Tracey Muise on November 15th, 2011 6:45 pm

June, Dawn Marie and families,

Sometimes when we lose someone we love we are given the gift of love from others. When we lost Gary we all found each other; beauty truly does come from even the darkest of places.

The love I feel for Stan and for you all runs to the very core of my heart. To say Stan was a special kind of man would be an understatement. Stan had an essence about him that pushed out from within onto the world before him. He was the laughter behind a smile, he was pure joy and silliness.

My heart hurts but even through the tears I have laughter because my memories of him are so rich with happiness.

He lived a life to be remembered and in so will always be with us.

All of my love,

Condolence from Shirley Croft and Family on November 15th, 2011 8:55 pm

Very sorry to hear about Stanley. Our prayers are with you and your families. Take care.

Condolence from Clyde & Wendy MacAdams on November 16th, 2011 6:00 am

Condolence from Ruby, Kim, Danny and Andrea on November 16th, 2011 12:23 pm


We share sadness
We share memories to cherish
We share love of family


After a visit as you got in the car he would be at the car window to
say SEE YOU, then standing in the road as you drove away that
one handed wave until next time. (just like Grampy)


Love to you all
