I worked with Stan at Weitz. I was just informed of his passing. It seems like yesterday we were trying to plan a golf game with some beers. I can't believe he is gone. My thoughts are with the family. He was truly a great guy!

Stan, was great guy. He loved his wife, loved his family, and loved golf, if ya played fast! Stan was a really good player, he'd racked up numerous hole-in-ones. He'd play anywhere with anybody.
Sad deal, he was taken too early. He will be missed.

We so enjoyed Stan and Pat as our neighbors on SE 10th St when all of our kids were growing up.

Dear family. I just saw this on facebook and it makes me so sad. Joan had called and told me about his illness, but she didn't let me know he had passed away. I have a lot of good, fun memories of Stan and the whole family which I treasure. We would have come to the funeral if we had known sooner, but I know how life gets when a treasured one passes. Please know I am sending my love to you all and praying that God will give you the strength and peace that you need to endure this loss. Love you and miss you all!

We were so sorry to here of Stan's passing. I had the pleasure of working with him when I joined Younglove Construction in Sioux City in 1980. He was a great guy with a wonderful sense of humor. To Pat and his entire family, we send our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. May God bring you the comfort that only He can.

With sincere condolences,

Stan was not only my cousin, he was my friend. WE grew up together and we always remained close.

I will miss him so much, he always made me laugh. He was there for me when I went through a terrible time in my life and I'm so glad I was able to talk to him through these last days of his life.

I love you
