Stan was a strong Christian loving his Lord & Savior Jesus Christ, he was actively serving at Eastern Hills Community Church in Aurora. Stan loved his family, but his grandchildren were wrapped around his finger. He enjoyed paintballing with his older grandsons, camping & backpacking with family & friends, taking a spin on his motorcycle, riding through the Rockies on his bicycle and being outside. Stan enjoyed weekend card games, entertaining and barbequing in the backyard with family and friends, making sure to drop the occasional hotdog through the grates for those that like that really charred flavor. He loved to learn all he could about WWII, particularly the aircraft. He was a good teacher, always willing to learn; helping others in need was a passion and he was a gifted encourager. Stan was loved by so many people, so many memories of Stan will be cherished for years to come. Stan loved God. In the words of a dear friend, “The faith in the Lord shared by Stan is a wonderful example and testimony to others. You can't think of Stan without thinking of his big smile, his huge heart, and willing to help anyone however he could.” Stan was a devoted husband, loving father and doting Papa to five amazing grandchildren.
