Stan was a proud American. He was a chemical engineer and worked in research development – gas technology. He was a member of St. Ann Church, where he served as an usher and was a member of St. Vincent DePaul Society. He was also a volunteer for Meals on Wheels and a member of the Knights of Columbus. He was a Southside Chicago sports fan and enjoyed walking. But most of all he loved to travel and take vacations with his family. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather, and he will be missed.
