Stan was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hiking, fishing and camping with his family as well as maintaining popular hiking trails throughout Nevada County.
Stan was the first of 4 generations born and raised in Nevada County. He was an honest, hard-working provider, whose strong convictions, integrity and devotion to his family were evident in all he did.

Stan had a way of making you feel like you were the most important person in the world to him. He will be deeply missed.
