Stan was blessed with the birth of his first son the late Stanley II who was born September 15, 1969 and who passed on January 29, 1979 from a tragic accident that occurred here in San Diego.

In the late seventies, Stan met his wife Ivy. They married on September 1, 1979. With this marriage, they focused on their love for each other and developing a close family. He was proud to welcome another son Stanley III in 1980 and a daughter Ilene in 1984.

Over the span of these years, he made a positive difference in so many lives by preparing many individuals for better opportunities, and teaching young people job and living skills which extended also into their family lives. He was highly respected, patient, kind, generous, fair, and a dedicated father with high integrity. Stan's most rewarding times in his life was having the opportunity to mentor his son Stanley III. Given his forty years of experience and knowledge, he trained him to be responsible, competent, and professional in the work environment. In addition, he was proud to be instrumental in Ilene's decision-making, nature teaching skills, and work ethic values in her career as a Phlebotomist.

Stan was an exceptional man, husband, father, teacher and friend. He gave unconditionally his love. He will be deeply missed by family and friends.

To cherish his love,
