Sorry so late. I am not good on the Internet. I worked with Stan's older brother at Kool-Aid Bottling, and two of my wives worked with Stan at the Paladium, I was in the Naval Reserve with Stan for years. We went on a couple of trips together. I knew his wife, Pat, and the fellow she was previously married to. They lived next door to my sister, Susan. I cannot believe I missed his funeral, but we were close and did a lot of things together. Jim Reinl 920.395.2426 (Text)

Thoughts and Prayers with Stan's friends and family in our time of loss! Stan was always a great help with State AFL-CIO Bowling Tournaments later giving way to Bill and Paula too continue for several years, until the Tournament was discontinued! In later years at the UAW-CAP and AFL-CIO Annual Kick Off Dinners at Emil Mazey Stan provided thirst quenching beverages for the our Guests at the event! . Thank you Stan!
