Beloved husband, father, grandfather, Stan was a devoted friend as well. An innovator in the world of fine collectibles, especially porcelain dolls and dollhouse furniture, Stan had a stellar career marketing, buying, and merchandising for Cardinal China Company and EffanBee Dolls (a division of Madame Alexander).
Ever curious, Stan loved all things aeronautical, from model rocketry to radio controlled airplanes. He and his beloved wife Irene were extremely active in their retirement years in Sun City Bluffton/Hilton Head, singing with choir groups, traveling, and Stan even tried his hand at acting a time or two, one memorable role in "Tony and Tina's Wedding." Through his work Stan and Irene also traveled extensively throughout Asia, which gave them both a great love and appreciation of those various cultures.
He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Irene, his brother David and his wife Carol, his children, sons Steven and his wife Kimberly, Howard and his wife Inna, and daughter Randy; his three step-children, daughters Robin and her husband Greg, April and her husband Gary, and son Bob and his wife Erin, ten grandchildren, and beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and former colleagues.
