Stan had many many friends whom I would love to list but am afraid of leaving someone off.
One friend upon hearing of Stan’s passing said, “Stan was so special and one of the kindest men we’ve ever known.” Stan’s kindness and sense of humor earned him many life long friends. His laid back personality made him easy to love.
Stan was a dedicated member of the LeClaire Lions Club for many years. He and his son, Andy, participated in the YMCA Indian Guides. Stan and his daughter, Lisa, were involved in the YMCA Indian Princess. He was an avid fan of the Iowa Hawkeyes football and basketball teams.
