Joyce and your family.My sincere sympathy to you all from Pat and I. Stan and I started out together in Elyria at Franklin way back when!

I apologize to you Joyce for finding out too late to be present on Tuesday. Stan was a really fine gentleman! May he remain in the minds and hearts of those that he touched.

I first met Stan at St Mary\\\'s H.S. when he was a Senior and I began my teaching/coaching career. He was a big kid then, but was soft spoken, polite and had a great love for playing football for St. Mary\\\'s. We would meet at teacher seminars and at Elyria H.S. when the Lorain Catholic Varsity boys\\\' basketball teams played in the sectional tournaments. My condolences to his family and to his many friends.

So sad an unexpected - we shared many laughs at EHS -- he was extremely patient with me in my early counseling days. A big-hearted and generous man who will not be forgotten by staff and former students.

I was saddened to hear that one of our team members of The Lorain St Mary\\\'s Fighting Irish football squad has passed away. Stan\\\'s physical size and gigantic heart for the game of football were true assets to the nature and being of this young man. It was an honor for our squad and myself to have had him as a team member. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

I am so sorry to hear of Stan's passing. Stan was a special guy with a great sense of humor and a kind heart extended to everyone. I have very special memories of Stan back in our early teaching days at Franklin Jr. High as well as those at Elyria High. The world has lost "one of the good guys".

So sad to hear of Stash's passing. A year behind me at St. Mary's High School, we were teammates on the great Fighting Irish teams of the late 60's and I always enjoyed seeing him at the annual golf tournament in July. He was always fun to be around and very loyal and a guy you could count on regardless of the situation. He will be sorely missed. My condolences to his family and friends.
