Stanley spent his later life travelling to many great places with daughter Marjorie. A celebration of his life was held at his Masonic Lodge in Elliot Lake. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Elliot Lake Library would be appreciated by his family. Funeral arrangements entrusted to ALTERNATIVE FUNERAL SERVICES. 13317415

We were privileged to get to know John better when he did some electrical work for us, in his mid eighties.

His high energy level, positive attitude and thoughtful approach to life was such an inspiration.

It has been wonderful to witness the mutual respect and love between Marjorie and her dad over the years.

All the best to you and the family during this difficult time.
